Of all the places in the world that one would think would be decorated impeccably, you would think that the home of an interior designer and an architect would be drop dead gorgeous.
It is a challenging dilemma...decorating my own home. First and foremost, I am oh so picky and I only want the "good" stuff. You know, the really expensive, good stuff. Not that I intend to be drawn only to expensive pieces - it just is a natural evolution tied to our industry.
Here is where I seem to run into my decorating predicament - little time and little money. I'm in a bit of a fix and I am determined to solve this.
It's just good Feng Shui and it's just good for the soul. I need to feel good in my own surroundings so that my base is strong and from there...energy expands out.
Floors finished or Carpet on the stairs
and last but not least...just the right dining table...what I think is the core of entertaining in our intimate little Craftsman style house.
I thought I would share with you a few of the tables that I have ear marked as ones to inspire me ones that are up for consideration.

Michael Taylor Lyre Base Table
Italian Base - another view. I have been enamored with this table for several years now.
South of Market Dining Table - might be nice with my oatmeal colored upholstery on the dining chairs.
South of Market Dining Table - love the iron work and the rustic top
Another South of Market Table - great Asian feel to this table - yet modern
The snow has stopped here in Ohio and I am eager to get out and about. I would love to stop by a few antique shops on Larchmere and then visit the Cleveland Botanical Garden for their annual orchid show.
If it is time for the Orchid show - SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!!!!
...I wonder if by Spring I will have found my new dining table, area rug, and will have successfully painting my Living Room/Dining Room. I'm thinking soft, soft, soft light blue - out with the red - in with the pale blue.
