Wining and Dining

June 20, 2011

I had a bit of an epic weekend. I attended two weddings two days in a row, which I’m sure many people have done before but it was definitely a first for me. It was fun! And also a bit exhausting. But you can’t say no to two prime rib dinners in a row, right?

Wonderful wood beams. And I love benches for dining room seating. Photographed by Sven Everaert, via Vårt Nya Hem.

Bertoia chairs are a stylish choice. I love the bright pops of color. Via design attractor.

An even more stylish choice, in my opinion, is these Eames side chairs. The wood dowel base is probably my favorite for the iconic chair. I also really dig the jointed light fixture hanging in this room. It is a fun and unexpected choice for dining light and can easily double as task lighting if needed.

Whenever I hesitate to share an image with you, I ask myself, “If I walked into a new acquaintance’s home and saw this room, would I be gushing to them about how beautiful it is?” While this sunroom is not at all my style, the answer to that question is absolutely yes. Designed by Kit and Tim Kemp, photographed by Simon Upton for Elle Decor.
