“Ultimately your home is so much more than just a decor style, it’s a life style,” as said by The Paris Apartment (a new favorite blog.)

Her quote comes from a clip of her book. I find inspiration not only in her quote and the rest of the clip of the book, but also in each and every post and photo she posts.  Check out these gorgeous rooms and then check out her blog here:  www.parisapartment.wordpress.com

I love the round shape of this vintage chair… and also the cabinet behind it!

Chair Love Some More

This weeks chair love comes early!  I spotted this beauty on Apartment Therapy earlier in the week.  The picture is of the store front of the Pico Modern Furniture shop.  What a pretty place!  And, great taste in chairs, I might add.

 

The shop is described as unique and unusual.  I love it already!  And, I want the chair! 🙂

Mini Bar Update

We have had the old TV armoire we found on Craigslist home for a couple of weeks now. I haven’t posted about it because we are having a change of heart. We had wanted to strip the wood and stain it black. But, when we got the cabinet home we thought it was so gorgeous we couldn’t bear to do that! I thought that going black and adding some shiny handles and mirrors would add some Hollywood Regency to the cabinet, more suiting it to become a mini bar. I just don’t know if we can bring ourselves to touch the beautiful wood. We did add a stemware rack to the top and filled it with our lovely bar glasses and goods. It is really gorgeous in our dining room, and it has already served it’s purpose. We do still plan on adding another shelf in glass and also a pull out shelf for more mixing and pouring space.

What do you think? Should we restain the cabinet black or leave it as it is?

You can't see it here because there is no stemware in it, but there is a clear stemware rack on the right side.
