You have such a great I for detail, I looked at the same pic last week and didn't even notice the vino. I used to put a lot of thought into our Thanksgiving table scape, however, it's so lost on the in-law, I've almost givin' up!

Love the table and chairs.

I love those chairs! And you are so right about the white wine! But to be fair, I prefer white wine to red pretty much any day of the week!

boops said...

very nice...i love the ensemble so far...i would prefer a deeper or richer brown tone to the table however.
looking forward to seeing it all come together.

I love it! That first setting is awesome - you're so right about the wine!

I like where yours is going - but where are those chairs from??? So pretty. They'd look equally as pretty at the heads of my table!

I like! Very much. I especially love the trellisy table linens with the patterned plates. Your green/gray/orange colorway looks like this: http://tinyurl.com/yhvt4h9.

I normally don't get all that jazzed about table-setting posts, but that spread is absolutely perfect!

Keep your thoughts flowing, me wanna see more!

Actually, I kinda love. The paint color is fab. Looks much like the color I have painted my basement walls and I adore the touch of orange in the sconce shade. The table setting is lovely, so not fussy and very pretty. I have an admission, I'm a bit obsessed with that blog.

Love that table setting...and I agree with you, the red wine would have killed that shot!

Kristin said...

That paint looks like an exact match for my kitchen/family wall color. I chose it based on the color of my Kitchenaid mixer. Ah ha

Gorgeous!

beauty meets budget said...

I know, I know. The chairs are fantastic. The sconces are pretty rock 'em sock 'em too. But what really has me transfixed is that rug. I actually need something of precisely that ilk for my living/dining area. The orange with the blue is just the ticket.

Might I inquire as to the source of that beauty? Is it somehow attainable or am I destined to pine over an impossible dream.
