Fabulous Room Friday 09.18.09

This week's fabulous room is a cozy and charming dining nook that is featured in the October 2009 issue of Homes and Gardens magazine from the UK. I love the gorgeous, deep peacock blue hue (Windward Blue from Sanderson Spectrum) used on the wall. The tall, bright white baseboard adds a great contrast. The room feels a little rustic thanks to the antique Swedish table and chairs and the Nordic sofa. The antique Victorian bread boards on the wall add a charming touch and create visual interest in the room. I also like how well the deep blue paint is complemented by the choice of fabrics. It looks like a beautiful place to start one's day.

Who would have thought to put bread boards on a wall. It just goes to show that everything looks better en masse.

It's alright. It looks a little too "white" if you know what I mean.

Not sure how I feel about the furniture but that gorgeous wall color alone makes the room worthy of "room of the week" status. Have a great weekend, Paloma!
