I love staring at Pinterest in the morning!
Today’s inspirational fun involves dining room light fixtures.
I noticed that people are hanging 2 lights over the table, instead of the usual 1.
Nobody loves a drum shade more than I do.
Nobody loves navy blue ticking stripe more than I do.
I wonder how a pair of these beauties would look, hanging over our pine farmhouse table!
Blue ticking drum shades are of the modern-meets-granny persuasion, don’t you think?
I like to describe my decor as such.
Speaking of which, here’s a stunning modern/granny/industrial dining room:
It’s all good, but I think I’m most smitten with that cabinet!
NO, I don’t have it, but I do have a close runner-up . . .
. . . my 20’s-era postal sorter!
I think I paid $75 for this, way back in ’91 when I had my first retail shop . . .
. . . Heart-in-Hand, in my then-hometown of Oregon, Illinois
(about 2 hours straight west of Chicago).
But I digress.
What I am saying is: that postal sorter is definitely moving with us to the Dutch colonial.
Now all I have to do is decide whether it will be in our living or dining room.
Today my vote would go to the dining room.
