It's almost the weekend! Hope everyone is having a great week. I am one picture shy of finishing my client's dining room.  My client is a realtor that has used me to stage houses for eight years.  This is a decorating job--not staging. The family eats meals in the dining room every night.  She did not want the furniture changed.  We painted and added accessories.

I replaced the Very Large floral centerpiece on the buffet. (I posted about that project before.)  The candlestick lamps were exchanged for two mother of pearl lamps.'

Check out the new centerpieces.  I used a matching ceramic pitcher and vase that I hunted down in two different in Steinmarts.  The bowl in the center is the clients.  I gave the client two sets of placemats.  Green for the Fall/Winter and Yellow for the Spring/Summer.  We jumped the gun and decided to use the cheery yellow mats now.

Below, the tea cart was cluttered with a bunch of small items.  I used a large glass platter ($14.99 at HomeGoods compared to $29.99 at Pier1) and 2 chunky mercury glass candlesticks.

  2. Love it!! The colour scheme is so fresh and so much more inviting. Well done!
