Over the past year, my dining room has transitioned into a multi-functional space: it has played host to big dinner parties, quick breakfast bites, many craft projects and now functions as my new ‘office space’. While our home is under construction, I’ve relied on this little end of the table to keep me focused throughout the day so that I can keep up with my consulting business, blog about my favorite entertaining & home decor finds over at PDB, and relax (exhausted) after a hard day’s work with a glass of wine. I’m pretty sure that my favorite little parson’s chair has a permanent imprint of me by now.
I also have a small affection for dark lampshades. They’re not the greatest at transmitting light but I love the contrast of the cool, crisp mirror base of this Pier 1 find with the dark black pendant shade. Fresh flowers are another obsession – especially brilliantly colored tulips that hang over the edge of their vase, kissing the table below (that’s my diy table runner from a recent baby shower that I played host to).
My puppy is the last reason I love this space so much. The black and white picture in the background must be from when he was about nine or ten weeks old. Now he’s a gentle giant that lies all day under this table over my feet, and when he’s especially annoyed that the computer gets more attention than him, across my lap, belly over my legs as he wait for me to finish.’
