Before and After Dining Room in Southern Living!

You might remember our clients’ dining room from a way while back, but I was so excited to see it featured in Southern Living Magazine’s November issue!!  

It’s part of a before and after entertaining story on dining rooms.  The room was styled (beautifully!!) by Susan Victoria and shot by Southern Living photographer, Laurey Glenn, whom I’ve worked with a couple of times and just love.

Here’s what the dining room looked like before:

{My clients were really patient and left it empty so that we could start from scratch!! 🙂

When I met my client for the first time I was so excited when she spoke about how she wanted her home to feel: pretty, relaxed, laid-back and natural.  (ding ding ding for me!!! 😉  The dining room is a mix of styles with both refined (the glossy yew table) and primitive (the custom painted sideboard by Furniture From the Barn}  pieces and of course, lots of natural touches.

Southern Living also put together a gorgeous table setting using my rules of thumb:

{You might recognize the table cloth, which is done in Lauren Liess Textiles “Live Paisley” in Chocolate}

Working with clients who share such a similar aesthetic was so much fun and incredibly satisfying.  Hope you enjoyed seeing their home once more!!

On another note- for those of you who are in the area- we’re having am open house this Saturday from 10-3 in the studio!!  Most of our floor models will be on SUPER SALE for this weekend only.  (Basically, i plan the next season at the studio around what we have in stock so we’ll either keep what we have or order new pieces and move on.)  I’ll be posting photos and dimensions of some of the pieces later this week on our store page here for anyone who wants to check measurements in advance.
