The table in the formal dining-room was once in a Paris library. It is now painted and mirrored, surrounded by antique chairs covered in green mohair. From the mirrored ceiling hang four identical chandeliers, a rare find from a church.
I love library/dining rooms, such a smart use of space for townhomes or smaller homes. Libraries only require the perimeter of the room while dining tables only occupy the center. Great marriage of the two functions.
What a gorgeous room. The table and chair have been painted in a French linen, grey-mauve for a classic shabby chic look. And who can resist some lavender - not only for its colour but also for its intoxicating smell.
In the sun-drenched conservatory of a Houston home, which serves as a dining area and was renovated by Newberry Campa Architects and decorator Kara Childress, an Italian Empire-style chandelier hangs above a Italian marble pedestal table.
