Entries in dining room (103)
I dislike red in any application. This is the first time I have ever actually liked a red in an interior. Kudos to interior designer Christy Allen for finding this perfect shade - Benjamin Moore's Soft Glow, a coral red with pink undertones. It's stunning with the artwork and fiddle leaf fig tree.
Happy Canada Day fellow Canadians!! It is a miserable day here in the country's capital as it usually seems to be on this, the biggest holiday of the year (WTF). Instead of attempting to enjoy the festivities around the city in the rain I am sitting here at my computer having spent the morning tweaking photos I took last weekend of some decorating and rearranging I did when I managed to find some spare time. So I thought I would share them with you all today before I knock more items off my blog to-do list and then head to my parents for a random turkey dinner.
I have lived in this house for a year now and had yet to hang anything on the walls, so despite not having painted many rooms, I decided to hang some art in my dining room and office area in my living room before I lose my mind. For my workspace I opted for a picture shelf, that way I can rotate art as frequently as I wish without damaging my plaster walls that are painted in my favourite colour of all time - Farrow & Ball's downpipe. It seems Ikea no longer carries their picture shelves unfinished so I had my husband build me one so I could paint it the wall colour. I really love my little monochromatic office corner now. :)
I would love to replace that Panton chair with a tall plant (perhaps a fiddle leaf fig that I can promptly kill).
