dining out


Here we are at Lisa's house again. I wanted to be sure to capture her dining room for you. Isn't it great? So colorful! Actually, the wall color reminds me of a lipstick I had a long time ago...the name of it was "raspberry glacee" (it was Clinique in case that rings a bell.)


Another view below. Lisa's breakfront has a mirror in it, which you can see. So I had to stand to the side of it as I looked into the room to avoid being caught on film. Be sure to notice the beautiful fabric on those curtains. Gorgeous!

How about that chandelier? I love it. And of course, I love Lisa's pottery collection. I needn't say anything more about that, you know the whole story already!

I've lurked here a while - never posted. I love your SIL's decorating! I have a love of color too. Beautiful - I just love that mirror and chest in her foyer. I hope you have bedroom pics - I'm currently trying to decide how to redo mine.

Love your blog!!

Love this house! Your SIL has a beautiful house and great style. The breakfront/dining cabinet is it an antigue? If not where did she get it?

I really enjoy reading your blog!

Meg said...

Hi Posey,

Thank you for your nice comment. The piece is not an antique. Lisa will let me know if I'm wrong, but I believe she bought her entire dining set from Lane furniture.

Thanks for stopping by!!

That is a beautiful dining room. I love how well everything goes together. Beautiful colors!

Lisa said...

Yes, Meg you are correct! I bought this furniture from Lane about 7 years ago. Thanks for all the nice comments everyone! I just love to see other people's homes also!

I just found your blog. Your SIL has a charming style. The dining room color is so fresh, not red, not pink, I guess it is rose? I'd love to know what brand and color of paint this is. Thanks!

Meg said...

Hi Laura Lee - thanks for stopping by, you are welcome anytime!

The color is Secret Garden by Benjamin Moore.
