28 Notes
  • The second pic is my petite Toronto dining room — for a story I produced on antique market makeovers for STYLE AT HOME mag, where I am Senior Design Editor. FYI, wallpaper is Barbara Barry, table, chairs and chandelier are all vintage. Yellow vase is from IKEA. Love this look, but ultimately the chairs were super uncomfortable — we had to banish them. J’adore green and it is everywhere in my house…Thanks for nice comments about my work/house.

  • the colors in the first photo are perfect. I love the sofa.

  • I adore the first two images! There is just something about the color green that is so refreshing and relaxing. Love it!

  • Loving your green post, very fresh and fun!! I linked you up to mine too, have a good weekend :)


  • wow, this really does evoke the feelings of summer!!! so happy and inviting! :) I just love the table and chairs in front of that gorgeous wallpaper… where was that when I was picking out wallpaper for my house??!! :) xo!
