Fabulous Room Friday 01.07.11

I love how beautiful this dining room by Suzanne Kasler is in its simplicity. Everything is neutral, yet completely glamorous. The contrast of the sumptuous silk tablecloth against the dark chairs is fantastic while the crystal obelisks, chandelier and silver serving pieces add to the allure of the room. This is a perfect example of why simplicity is synonymous with elegance. Happy weekend, everyone!

A round table with curvaceous chairs is my favorite dining style--my dining room sport them too, and I'm always looking for new fabrics and table top ideas to spice things up. This simple yet inviting mix is beautiful.

I love the china closet!! It's all so pretty & I love how the bowls vary in colors. The chandelier & the white roses are perfect accents!! =)

Happy weekend!

Oh, that is a fabulous room. We are looking at a new table and chairs for our breakfast nook, and those are the exact chairs I've had in my imagination. So pretty. Have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful indeed. But I think an important detail is the mirror in the back of the cabinet - it adds just the right amount of glitter in the reflection to spice it up. And I have coveted those colorful cut crystal tumblers for years!

Super love your blog. Especially that you're from Houston! I sometimes feel like everyone "cool" is a thousand miles away from Texas.

Anddd I have a question that I hope you could answer. Do you have any suggestions for shops that sell relatively modern desks? By modern I mean streamlined designs that do not read "chunky wood"

Thanks in advance :]

Very pretty--I like the mirrored back of the cabinet and the crystal obelisks. I'd be curious to see this table styled with something more graphic--black and white pattern. I bet it would look great.
