guess who’s coming to dinner?
you’re all invited! here’s a look at the dining room of my new cottage dwelling at present state — again still kind of a work in progress so all comments are welcome. this room was a total man cave. woven wood blinds on the windows covering up all that nice light and brown-beige paint and wall-to-wall really gross carpet. we painted it with sherwin williams emerald white which has great coverage and ripped up the carpet and my landlord was kind enough to refinish the floors. hallelujah!
i’ve been working on getting the light fixture up before sharing it with you, but i finally got this bentwood onion pendant from west elm up, so we’re ready for the dinner party! when i saw this lamp i thought it would be a good fit and i’m really happy with it. i’m not sure if i’ve got too many plants going on though, so i’m wondering what you think. do tell. again, i’ll share my sources for as much as i can (so much is vintage) and you just let me know if you’re curious about anything i might miss.
sources: buffet was a yard sale find; white mid-century modern bench above via ebay; black industrial lamp from mid century modern finds; art on left are flea market finds, print on right by kim schoen; wood candlesticks a mixture of vintage finds, housing authority and anthropologie.
below: chair in foreground is vintage hillcrest outdoor metal chair (that swivel!) from the alameda flea market; chair in background from fab; swiss cross pillow from jonathan adler; sheepskin from black sheep white light.
