My client, a stay at home mom of two young boys need helpwarming up her dining room. She LOVES blue (thank goodness since she is in a house full of boys) her goal was pretty! I think that is exactly what we got!



We warmed up the paint color, changed out the area rug, repositioned the dining chairs, and added lovely flat panel drapery on the windows. The windows in this room are small, so we hung the drapery hardware about 8" past the molding on both sides to give the illusion of larger windows and to gain as much light as possible.

Drapery fabric...lovely Ralph Lauren soft blue, yellow, cream floral.

With the left over fabric, I recovered the shades for the buffet lamps.

This is the only eating area in the house...wouldn't you love to start your day with coffee and toast in this pretty room?

before and after:

This well loved and used ottomand was in need of some TLC...over the years the linen floral fabric had faded and had started to wear.

Great size and darling turned legs


The perfect solution: a simple slipcover. Creamy white matelasse with kick pleats at the corners

Dressed up for the fast approaching holidays
