I love the Giogali chandelier designed by Angelo Mangiarotti in 1967. Love. I’m thinking of one in my dining room. I’m also loving these fabulous photos featuring the Giogali in all its glory by Jim Bastardo (via Big Leo). Makes my decision so much easier. Just what a good commercial photographer should do. Capture an image that captures your dreams. (You can see Kim’s post on Jim Bastardo here.)
Wonderful photography by Lesley Unruh. Real and messy and everyday beautiful.
Just had to pop back to say congratulations to the lovely Camilla Molders on making the Top 50 Rooms 2011 as judged by Australian House & Garden. The smile that stretched across my face as I flicked through the magazine and thought “I know that room, I know that designer. We’ve drunk too much together.” Well deserved Camilla. (This photo is snagged from the magazine website and is by Derek Swalwell. Camilla if you have a larger file we’d love to have it so I can upload it nice and big.)
A really long wooden dining table with a bunch of vintage chairs (and old schoolhouse looking ones to boot) = a HUGE *YES!* in my book.
As much as I love having 25 drawers in my kitchen to keep everything organized, there’s something really appealing about having every kitchen gadget and spice jar at your fingertips (although the dust and grease must be such a pain in the arse). Both photos via Freunde von Freunden.
Annie emailed us a while ago hoping we’d do a post on tall dining room buffets….and she mentioned she doesn’t really like classic ones with glass door fronts. I thought I’d do a post that features some tall cabinets as well as some other options for those looking for dining room storage inspiration. I had to include some buffet/hutch combos with glass doors because I think they are so handy – you can hide away linens, cutlery and other things you don’t need out on display, and glass doors let you see all your prettiest dishes without worrying they’ll gather dust.
