^ Perhaps in an entry, hallway, or bath it would work ... it would make for a dramatic formal dining room at night.

The only place I've ever put wallpaper was in a dressing room that was already wallpapered. I guess I don't find it restful ... I also like to hang fairly bold things on the walls, and wallpaper tends to interfere with that.

I went to a resturant for my bfs birthday last night and they had the coolest lamps. They were spheres made of large fake flowers facing out if that makes any sense. While I was looking for something similar I found the (completely different) lamp I want for the big vaulted ceiling !!


design-conscious.co.uk

Now I just need to save up for my armchair and coffee table and then I could get this.

I had to look her up... I'm definitely not turning into her! I did find another picture featuring the lamp which I love. I also actually have that little blue table which Im thinking of painting dark purple.

I'm sure this will be more evident once I have more of my living room set up but I'm trying to decide between two chairs for my dining table. The classic eames chair in blue, or the oly studio chair in some other color combination. My dining table is surprisingly similar to the one in the eames picture except it's rectangular. I am going for a mix of modern and classic in the apt. I would love anyones opinion!

^ No, no one could be less Havisham-like than you

I'd say the Eames chairs with that type of table ... I'm not sure how well they go with the chandelier tho ... it seems a bit more formal.

I'll take that as a compliment! :p

I agree about the table being not as formal, it'll be in a little area by the kitchen so I hope it looks ok.

Thanks for posting pix, adorefaith I esp love the mirror in the bedroom, and echoing frames on the wall.

I absolutely love your space adorefaith! My sofa looks like it's the exact same style except in a different leather/color. Where are those bedroom tables from?

That is an absolutely stunning place you have there, adorefaith.

I'm considering the idea shown in the following picture for my kitchen/dining-room:


(apartmenttherapy.com)

It's a bit shabby and very nonchalant, but it looks quite cute and 'light'.

(plus it's super easy and cheap to re-create :p)

Is my vision clouded or is this as cute as I think it is?
