I loved reading all of your comments on your top dining table picks! For those of you that picked out the Lucia as the second choice to the Dakota you were thinking just like me, and here she is!I was hesitant at first to go for a round table, (I loved our big rectangular one) but the gorgeous bronze base and the black marble top of this table was calling my name. I have to thank my friend Jessica (who also happens to be an amazing interior designer) for introducing me to Organic Modernism where I found this beauty, I also picked up these stools for the kitchen while I was there.
More photos and plans for the dining room after the jump…Now onto the next steps… you may have been thinking that the light fixture is hanging awfully high for over a table and I totally agree. I am not quite sure how it got there but I am planning to replace the whole thing, so for now its flying high.
And then there are the curtains… well the curtains are fine, the curtain rods? not so much. We had those same Ikea curtain rods in our old bedroom and they worked, but for a dining room and the heart of the house I am thinking, no deal. Although, I’m having an internal struggle (much like the life changing rectangle to round table decision) between curtains with new hardware or installing some kind of blinds. I like how modern and clean things look without any window coverings (like here and here) but that isn’t an option where we live. Blinds can be clean and modern but are good ones going to cost an arm and a leg? And curtains can look great but most of my favorite spaces don’t even have them. I mean, what’s a girl to do?
Oh and on the brighter side, I found a perfect place for a bar cart.
