New Sitting Area

Part 1: Sitting Area
 
While furnishing our new kitchen hearth area, I recently addressed the area by the stair well. This is an old picture taken before construction... 
Here is the area during the expansion project (area by the two arched openings, far right just beyond scaffolding):
 
 
Area when construction was completed, unfurnished... 
 
 
I decided to use this as a seating area and went with a pair of leopard wing chairs (already had one and just recently purchased a second)...
 
                                 I chose this tea table with castors to go between the chairs...
                                              
                                 Close ups of the table's eglomise mirrored top (the "circles" in the mirrored surface are reflections of ceiling lighting)...

                                                               and the burled bottom shelf....

                                                      Close up of the spotted finish on the frame...

                                                            Here are the chairs and the table in place.


     I added a table lamp...



         Close up of the hanging crystals...


    A few items need to be added to the table, but otherwise here are all the pieces together....


 Part 2: Dobers

AND last, but not least, here are some recent pics of Henry, Princess and Rex:
 
Rex...
*(don't the boxwoods look great?... NOT optimal to have short evergreens with tall male dogs)  :)

                                                                         Henry ....

                                                                      Princess ....
                                            and all three together at the top of the stairs.... love my dobes!!

  3. Lori, The house looks A M A Z I N G !!!! I don't know how you do it! You have an eye for design, and expanding your kitchen area was just brilliant. Standing ovation!!! Sorry it took me so long to comment. I haven't visited the blog world in a long time. Pinterest has me spending way too much time away from these great blog sites.
