Today we continue the tour of our apartment--with the dining room!
The old, round, oak table is in front of the screened porch overlooking Elver Park (the biggest park in Madison) and the fireplace. We just moved this spring, but a cozy meal in front of the fire sounds delicious this winter, non? The table’s solid and sturdy and the chairs are intentionally soft and cushy--keeps us (and our guests) lingering at the table just a bit longer.
The walls are painted a soft orange, Harvest Moon (Benjamin Moore)
The green chandelier is also old and made of wood--a total Etsy score!
The art is powerful, a Marko Spalatin canvas that gorgeously balances the energy of the lively wallpaper in the entryway. This geometric art supports high energy, clarity, empowerment and passion. Let me know if you need this kind of boost in your life, I can hook you up :)
The TV is tucked off to the left of the fireplace on a credenza with wheels so it can be rolled into the perfect position when it’s movie night!
And then, WOW, we had some fun putting this fancy Venetian mirror with an old beat-up dresser behind the table. John Urban’s photograph, “My Lady Friend,” is hanging in the relationship corner of the room as a symbol of happy love :)
Last week I asked for feedback on my new Design Essentials Kit--WOWOWOW! Thank you for the comments, I soooooo appreciate it! Carol Mays is the winner of the drawing and will soon be receiving a $25 gift card in the mail to the Firefly coffee shop in Oregon, WI!
Thanks to all who attended and participated in the Q&A call last Wednesday, It was an awesome turnout and SO MUCH FUN! Start collecting your questions for July--we will be adjusting the date a bit, so mark you calendars for W, July 20th at 8pm CST.
