Fabulous Room Friday 08.21.09


This week's fabulous room isn't an entire room, per sé, but I was so smitten by this lovely console table in an entryway featured in Canadian House and Home, that I just had to post it. By the way, a huge thank you to the fabulous Erin of Elements of Style for introducing me to this magazine a while ago. I absolutely love it!

So, why is this table worthy of being considered an entire room for today's feature? I just find it incredibly charming. Eventhough it is organized and the table is large enough to accomodate quite a few items, it still feels a little chaotic and I sort of like that. You have books, an abundance of magazines much like you'd find in my own home, along with framed photographs, a vintage rotary phone, personal mementos, a gilded mirror, vintage lamp, and some darling stacked, kelly green boxes. What more could a girl want? C'est très charmant!

Have a fantastic weekend!

It does look like something you might actually see in a real person's home--that's nice.

This is one of my favorite tables- I have this whole issue saved because it was so great. This house was the best!

Have a good weekend!!

Yum. Kinda organized chaos, I love it. There is something really inspiring about that space, don't you agree? -carlee

Exactly. What more could a girl want? I love the console table too-- for the table, for the styling, for the approachability of the space! And wow-- so you not only speak Spanish, but French too? I'm impressed :) I've study both, and sadly feel I remember too little of either! Have a great weekend, Paloma! xoxo

How I'd love to have this entry table. I am one of those weird ones that would find this too cluttered, but I love the use of trays to control items. Adore the pops of green color. I have been a fan of CH&H since 2001. Let's just hope it stays healthy & strong. Pretty cool that they offer a digital subscription for those that prefer that option. Congrat's on being featured in the current issue of BH&G. What a huge accomplishment. Kuddo's to a fellow Houstonian!

I am in love with that magazine and look forward to when it arrives in the mail..everything about it just perfect...except its not a US mag...

I love H&H -- it's such a great magazine and I'm always so excited to get it every month. It's definitely the closest approximation to domino that's still in business.

Honestly the console table is a bit cluttered for my tastes but I LOVE the green boxes. They're perfect.

I love it because you can put almost everything on it.

Nice table! I find this table very useful.

Love this table! Very charming to see organized chaos like this. I prefer this to everything being hidden away as if no one lives there.

Love the pops of color and how it manages to not look cluttered even though there is a lot going on.
