Our Dining Room (+ A Winner)



I show you guys snippets of our house pretty frequently in "scenes from the weekend" and the like, but somehow I never get around to posting full rooms... But that's about to change (for one room at least). FD Luxe featured three dining rooms in their November "Feast" themed issue, and ours was one of them, which, needless to say, was pretty exciting. And it conveniently gives me the chance to share a peek at the entire room with you guys.

I loved being at the shoot with the amazingly talented photographer Mei-Chun Jau and writer (and friend) Jessica Elliot...The photos above are from the issue which is out in print now, and the snaps below are some of Mei-Chun's outtakes from the shoot. It was just such a fun and cozy day with those ladies...sort of magical even. I love it when that happens.


















And now for the winner of Jenn's awesome ring giveaway...congrats Mary Beth!

I never get tired of seeing shots of your home! Gorgeous room. We have that same mid century bench but we use it as a coffee table, and my husband would die over your wall of sunbursts. He's been wanting to do an entire wall of sunburst clocks after seeing it years back in Sunset Magazine.

Congratulations on being featured in the magazine! That's absolutely incredible!
And I have to say, gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous table. Please pass on my admiration for this piece on to your husband who did a beautiful job. When we buy our home and upgrade our furniture, I plan to reclaim wood into a dining room table.
Thanks for sharing and letting us into your home!

I love the shot of orange at the end and I love the side bench with the tray on. I'd love a dining room like yours!

Ooh, gorgeous things! Love the deep yellow wall, the sunbursts and table. Your home is so warm and inviting.
My fave is the second to last photo. The placement and the arrangement has an Ikebana vibe. Just stunning.

Please tell what color orange that is! We have been looking for a perfect orange for our home and that looks like a winner.
Thanks!

Joslyn said...

rachel -- it's actually more of a mustard yellow than orange. i think the light in those photos makes it feel a bit more orange than it is in real life ;-) it was a color that i custom mixed a few years ago and for the life of me i can't find the can. i'm sorry ;-(
