this dining room please...

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.

fantasy item:

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).
