On the Hunt: Dining Room Chairs

A great way to avoid having a home that looks cookie-cutter is to make sure there is a mix of both old and new. What better way to do this than mixing modern and vintage chairs at your dining room table.

6.) Nicos Zographos Chairs


At my table I have four modern chairs with sheepskins on the seat to add a bit of comfort. In between these chairs, I’ve added two vintage bentwood chairs from Spain.

 

Another trick is to have a loveseat on one side of the table. Not only is this a comfortable option, but it helps to make your dining room warm and inviting.

 

Finally, why not have an upholstered chair at each end of the table? I guarantee it will draw you in and you’ll linger with a good book and a cup of tea. These easy ideas can be the difference in a dining room never being used or a place you enjoy and choose to use.

 

One of my go-to places for unique items is Chairish. This is a site you want to use often, as the merchandise is always changing. You can find a unique set of chairs to mix with those you already have. And before you know it, you’ll want to hang in the often-overlooked dining room.

The Perfect Changing Table

Changing Table

One of the decisions I made was to not buy a changing table for the nursery. Instead, I found a chest-of-drawers I adored and retrofit it into a changing table. Believe me, if I can do it (the queen of DIY disasters!) anyone can.

I’m drawn to champagne-style chest-of-drawers. They remind me of the inside of a steamer trunk and anything related to travel is attractive to me. I found just what I was looking for at Land of Nod. Three ample drawers give me the room for everything I need when changing Jackson. And it was so easy to attach the changing table top. We attached it to the back of the chest so when Jackson is no longer in need of a changing table, we can remove the top and have it simply as a chest-of-drawers.

Press: Jackson’s Nursery Reveal

Today I’m thrilled to finally share Jackson’s nursery with all of you. This project was a labor of love and it all fell into place with ease. I envisioned a peaceful oasis for him to enjoy.


Originally, I had planned to keep the guest bed in the room. However, it quickly became apparent that there wasn’t enough room. I swapped that idea for a low woven bench with a cushion and pillows that is kid friendly that we could use as a reading nook. This allowed for more space to bring in the glider, crib, and changing table.

A nursery has all of the must-haves for a babies room – crib, changing table, chest of drawers. But when designing the nursery I thought about how it could evolve with time. That’s why I purposefully chose items that can change over time as he grows up. For example, the changing tray on the campaign dresser can be removed and it becomes a stunning chest of drawers. The baskets filled with receiving blankets can also function for storing toys. If you think ahead, you can buy items that serve several functions.

Interiors: My Dream Chair

| Sacramento Street

 

When we moved into our new apartment a year and a half ago I had a vision and wish list for the pieces I wanted. There is nothing I love more than mixing old and new together. With that being said, incorporating a touch of modern with antiques in each room is important to me.

 

The quest began for a chair for a corner in our dining room. It’s been sitting empty, waiting to be filled with the perfect lounge chair.

I’ve always had a love affair with white Barcelona chairs. I’ve dreamt of having one in my own home for years. When I began my search for one I found that my dream chair was a little to pricey for my budget. That’s when I was introduced to Rove Concepts who offers mid-century modern replica designs that are more affordable. Friends, it’s one of my new go-to sources for client projects. When my Barcelona chair (in Siena White) arrived I was in awe of its beautiful soft leather.

Let’s just say, what used to be an unused spot in our home is now my favorite spot to sit back to enjoy a warm cup of tea, a stack of magazines or catching up on my favorite sites. I have to say, although this chair is modern – it will forever be timeless in my eyes. I know that I’ll be able to move it from room to room if I ever get the itch to redecorate. And we all know that happens quite often!

Winter Home Essentials for the New Year

Winter Home Essentials

 

Images 1/2/3/4/5

 

The New Year brings on a frenzy to do, including a massive clean out of closets with several trips to goodwill. I’ve been doing that the past week, but now I have an itch to do a bit of redecorating around the house to start off 2015. First order of business was to pull inspiration – I’m drawn to the all white, cozy rugs and endless unique pillows from all of these images. From there I put together a list of several things I’m on the hunt for – a few rugs, throw pillows, a wing-back chair and more.

 Winter Home Essentials

 

1.) African Mud Cloth Pillow | 2.) Luxurious Reindeer Fur Throw

3.) Vintage Beni Ourain Moroccan Carpet | 4.) Wool Felt & Canvas Pillow

5.) Town & Country Wool Blanket| 6.) Mongolian Lamb Grey Pillow Case

7.) Vintage Persian Meshed Carpet


One of my first stops is always Chairish – you never know what unique items you can find on their site. One client bought a pair of chairs from Chairish for $200 (they were meant to be completely redone) and reupholstered them in a stunning fabric. The chairs are now the highlight of their family room. I’m mostly looking for items to make my home feel a little more cozy these winter months. I pulled together a few of my favorites (above) that I’d love to add to my house.
