Happy Wednesday!

I have been absent thanks to a hard drive malfunction which had me without a PC for a few days.

Last year, I worked on this dining room for one of my favourite clients.  I worked on a few rooms in their home including their bedroom.

This is how it looked before:


And this is how it looked when the woven wood shades (which we did throughout the first floor) were installed. They were using the room as an office when I suggested that we make it into a breakfast/dining room.  The room has a wonderful view with open space and then the Escarpment. They can still use the table as a desk but this way they and their dinner guests can enjoy the view as well.

The table and chairs are from one of my favourite suppliers, Geovin. I just love the base on this table and the simplicity of these chairs – always a classic.  I have used the floral linen fabric from Tonic Living on a few projects because it is so darn pretty.

Vanessa Francis Design Hey sweet Bella, how did you get into this shot?

I had suggested another lantern fixture (just love them over dining tables) but my clients wanted this one which they had seen in this dining room. Who am I to argue?

We chose to not have an area rug in the room because of the room’s shape. A rectangular rug would not have worked and I’m not a fan of round rugs. Plus, it’s much easier for cleaning.

(PS We had to take the photos from this tight angle between the kitchen cabinetry as the other angle is a lovely view of their neighbour’s brick as you can see in the Before photos.)

I think Bella approves of the room. What do you think?

Enjoy the rest of the week!
