~~ Furniture by Oly

Sienna Chair. There is nothing I don't like about this chair.

Pierre Chair. Love the scale and no frills attitude.

Etta Chair. What a great side chair or even a dining room chair. I could easily see this around a simple dining room table. Love the distressed leather too.

Benjamin chair. Sleek and has a retro or even Art Deco feel. Perhaps it's the cream leather that gives off that vibe. Love this!!!

I have given up on having a true formal dining room. We just do not use our dining room table. It only collects 'stuff'. So I've gone rogue and removed the table and chairs. I put in place of them two comfortable chairs that used to be in our living room. (They have been regulated to our guest quarters.) I love the look and idea of a sitting room connected to the kitchen. The animals are enjoying it as well! Much more casual and I really dislike unused spaces.

I want 2 new chairs... thus the reason for today's post on chairs. Any of these would work however, I'm leaning towards Sienna and Benjamin...

~~ Thibaut Wallpaper

Look at this adorable bedroom. Very very traditional with lovely plaids in chocolate and blue and furniture. And notice the wallpaper. Traditional damask in that seafoamy blue and white. Perfect. Adds a bit of pizzaz without feeling stuffy. Drapes break at the floor perfectly and I love the hardware in the silvery tone. Thankfully the designer/stager did not try to match the hardware with the wood tones of the furniture.

More contemporary here. Love the butter yellow OMG how comforting and the soft white drapes that gently connect with the floor.

Solar Disk is the pattern name and not only is the pattern dynamic but the color. The color is perfect! Notice the ivory/cream drapes in a soft silk with a beautiful trim on the leading edges. Also notice the nail heads on the table and chair.
