Entries in dining room (69)
I adore this cozy little cozy little dining space (even though the chairs are pretty wacky) so I had to share. When thinking of what I would say about it, my first random thought was when I finally get to meet Jo for the first time, what a perfect spot to sit together with pots of tea and plates of cookies and talk for hours, finally face to face. :-) Happy Friday!

I found the following awesome space on The Village, and while I don't speak Russian, Google Translate tells me this is a space created by Herculis Studio. They might be a catering business, something culinary-related anyway, and they wanted a space to meet with clients and discuss projects and organize dinners and parties for friends. Just about all of the decor and furniture was purchased at flea markets around the world. I freaking LOVE this. Jo and I are flea market/thrift junkies and this space is so much fun and quirky and super cool. I can imagine spending hours in here with friends and family feasting and chatting and having a drink or 3. (Photos by Olga Eichenbaum)
I thought I'd do a little something different today since I spent just about all day yesterday organizing parts of my house, taking photos, sorting through the photos and tweaking the photos. (Amazing how time consuming this ends up being). I acquired a few things recently so I thought I'd share them with you. Keep in mind I still have plans to tear this house down in the (hopefully) near future but in the meantime I still need to keep myself amused with decorating it.
I did a little something in my dressing room which you can check out over on closetrivalry.com. On the same wavelength as that little project, there are a couple of new additions to my living room. First, I decided that I was tired of not really having anything over the sofa (it's been 5 or 6 years) and since I have next to no space to display anything in this house, I decided to stick a shelf there. My husband took me out to a lumber yard and we found some gorgeous raw edge planks of wood. We bought 3 and used 2 in the dressing room and one over the sofa. My vintage cameras have been in storage for a while so I pulled those out and for some reason I like displaying lightbulbs (but I need a better bowl) so there we have it - a little display of stuff and things.
I would absolutely LOVE to have a super long dining table. AWESOME. And the lighting almost send me over the edge. Add in bookcases and chalkboard and I am having heart palpitations.
I love a mostly modern kitchen...and then I see a kitchen like this and I want to change my mind. The moldings, the windows, the antique furniture as kitchen cabinets, and throw in that massive vintage light fixture and you've got one helluva sweet kitchen.
