Favourite dining rooms

This post is of some of my favourite dining rooms photos I've posted this year. Dining rooms are one of my favourite rooms to decorate because I think the bolder the better. Unfortunately, my new itty bitty house doesn't even have one, so I will have to make due with these photos. (Beat this Jo!)

I see your kitchens and I raise you ....

.... more favourite rooms, including my favourite outdoor room. I'm going for sheer number not categories, see if I can win this game of favourite room poker with Kim. Lovely weather in Australia Kim for soaking in that tub staring at that view. (Actually that's not true right now. There is a cyclone brewing off the coast.)

Favourite kitchens

This post is of some of my favourite kitchens I've posted this year. Colourful, monochromatic, open shelving, modern, country...I love it all.

Naps...and a dog on a chaise

Barb of May December Home wrote us about a promotion called NaNaDaMo she is running for the month of January. It's all about napping, one of my favourite pastimes that I don't get to enjoy as often as I'd like. Read more about it here. She also sent this photo of Mr. Briggs who belongs to her friends Hammond and Judith and is convinced that they had the chaise reupholstered just for him. See? I'm not the only one who decorates with pets in mind. Thanks Barb!


I'm supposed to be having a break ....

... but then Kim raises the stakes by doing a post on her favourite living rooms and promises a lay down Misère by featuring rooms by category. (See I should be playing card games and drinking wine not posting.) So here I go!! More favourite rooms.
