this is loosely based on my own dining room.
a mixture of things i want mixed with what i already have or have that are similar.
for our purposes the dining room is both homework city and eatingtown.
the paint color is what i currently have: benjamin moore silver satin. it is actually more white than gray.
the table is similar to mine.
the settee is similar to mine.
i want to replace the current mission style chairs with black panton chairs (matte not shiny).
i possess the kari herer photography.
would sell babies for the ochre arctic pear chandelier.
simple black shaded sconces look fab (but i could have gone with 50 others to equal satisfaction).
pale silver/stone/white linen panels please.
a natural fiber rug to hide spills and for easy cleaning and/or relatively inexpensive replacing.
plus i love them and they keep everything from looking too serious.
silver leafed cabinet.
and finally simple wooden ballaster lamps.
though i could have gone about 5 different ways with lamps.
these just blended nicely and weren't too trendy looking.
and one semi beat up leather chair for cats and kid to cuddle with books.
*there is a weird rippling textured effect that is not part of the presentation, ignore it (dan).
