Guess who’s coming to dinner?

  1. Colour Me Happy says:

    Love it! But you should mention that it’s ‘somethings gotta give’s’ dining room, you’ll get a lot more traffic. people google it all the time 🙂 (as you know)

  2. LindsB says:

    I love it! I also love that you can change up the look at anytime- well that means begging your MIL again, but its easy to switch out the fabric of the chairs, add a ribbon on them, maybe a monogrammed slipcover- ah so many choices- LOVE IT!

  3. High-Heeled Foot in the door says:

    Thanks Maria! I fixed it. I’m also gonna need to bug you with a color question I have, but I’ll that for tomorrow.

    I knew you would love it Linds! I was thinking monograms as well.

  4. Blueprint Bliss says:

    i like it alot… and love the idea of the bench and slipcovered chairs!

  5. Kate says:

    Just something to think about (not having a *clue* about the size of your room) — most round tables that extend into an oval comfortably seat 6 extended, which is a pretty small dining table. Something like SGG table in your picture actually expands into a bigger circle (Baker makes a bunch of these if you want to see an example). So depending on the shape of your room, you might want to think about something that is truly oval? But in general, love the inspiration board and good luck. It has taken us a year and I still don’t have chairs!

    Have you seen the upholstered couture chair from Ballard Designs? I have four of them around my dark wood oval dining table and I change out the slipcovers with the seasons: ecru velvet in the winter, butter twill in the summer. Many choices, and for $39 per pleated skirt slipcover, you can’t beat the price. I’ve loved this set for 5 years now. Just a thought.

    Isn;t it hard making a decision for your own home !!!! agh….it’s so exciting to think about starting but when it comes to the crunch ahhhhhhhh……I adore the bench seat !!!!!!!!!!

  8. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    Very classy, indeed! My favorite part is the bench option. Do you mind sharing the vendor name?

  9. Sweet Nothings says:

    oh I love that bench!

  10. Lauren says:

    Oh of course I love it!!!!! Going to be SO beautiful!!!!! you can have so much fun changing up your able settings!!!

  11. High-Heeled Foot in the door says:

    Yay glad you ladies like it. Now I just have to go look at in person.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions.


    You are totally right it will only fit with 6 chairs. It’s not a huge room and is pretty much a perfect square. I’m going to table up the floor with blue tape and see how it would fit. I don’t think I could get anything in much larger than that.


    Oh I love those Ballard chairs. Especially the pleated ones. I’m going to price it out and see what the best bargin is.

    As for the vendor well it’s from a company called Bobs. It’s http://www.mybobs.com. They have really inexpensive, but good quality furnture. This would in ways be our forever set, but it would look good in the house and fit the space.

  12. Centsational Girl says:

    One more note, I really love the Ballard chairs because you can also get the slipcovers in the full length fabric skirts. For you, perhaps the white quilted fabric they offer? Fab. Another nice thing about these chairs: they look great anywhere in your house, not just at the dining table. Great versatility. Good luck. 🙂

  13. Sarah's Fab Day says:

    I love it.

  14. Freckles Chick says:

    Love love LOVE!

  15. No.35style says:

    i was going to mention the ballard’s knife pleat slipcovers, but i see someone beat me to it! It is soo hard trying to make these kinds of decisions!!

  16. I love all of the designs especially the Gotta Give room.. 🙂

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
