On Thursday as well, Mekenzie and I hit Barb Peterson's home. I have been wanting to shoot her dining room recently installed and we had just enough time that afternoon.
Barb's office which we complete last year (see here) started a new color palette throughout the first floor and should be bleeding onto the back porch and family room soon. This dining room, adjacent the office, created such a cohesive color palette and has all the whimsy and life Barb herself radiates!
The wall paper was the first and biggest element in the room I pulled in. This Osborne and Little pattern carries the colors across the hall and add so much life to this space. Available at Lucy and Company in other colors as well !
A new chandelier, mirror, table and chairs, sideboard and lighting completed the look.
I love the mix of all our finishes, gold, silver, zinc distressed wood, painted wood and sleek walnut stained wood. Take a closer look at the zinc !
And I am especially obsessing over my "pot head."
Four off-white leather side chairs and two tall upholstered head chairs break up the look of a set. Maggie found the perfect teal graphic fabric for the back of these gorgeous chairs !
This Vanguard sideboard has made two appearance this week ! Thais Schmitz already owned it and I had chosen it way back for Barb - great minds... it's such a pretty piece !!
The lamps mixed both the gold and the zinc tones and didn't block the killer mirror - pay attention to sizes!

Fun and bright ! Anxious now to head into the back of the house.
Thanks Barb !!
