Don't Know What I Love Most....



the entire scene,
the tabletop arrangement,
the beautiful, gorgeous, over-the-top chandelier,
or the sofa on one side of the table, piled high with big oomphy silk pillows,

or the guests I might be having to share an evening's friendships.

which do you love the most?

I love the whole scene, too. I have a very rustic dining table with a large antique crystal chandelier hanging overhead, and a gorgeous ornate silver plate candelabra,that has seen better, sitting on one end of the table. Every time I look at it, I fall in love with the scene. Also, I love the upholstered high back chairs at either end of the table. So much to see in one photo. Angela Muller

The sofa is TOO low you can see under the table so sitting there WOULD NOT BE FUN!YOur chin would be on the table but the arm chairs would be GREAT to have a chit chat in........I of course, Love the chandelier which is really TOO LOW to dine at BUT LOOKS SMASHING!The BIG SILVER BOWL is MY FAVORITE..........I can NEVER have enough SILVER!THE WHOLE LOOK IS STUNNING.........just not practical.

Marsha Splenderosa said...

I know, I know. Imagine how much fun we could have with a couple of friends just hanging out.

Marsha Splenderosa said...

The company of good friends is the absolute BEST!

Marsha Splenderosa said...

Makes me want to re-style my dining room right this minute !

Marsha Splenderosa said...

So happy to have you visit me & leave such a lovely comment. This is Cindy's "style" absolutely.

Marsha Splenderosa said...

Hi Angela, I love this comment. You REALLY looked at the entire image, didn't you? Big hug !!

Marsha Splenderosa said...

I can only imagine how lovely you could make something. Beginning with nothing, ending up with gorgeous !!

Marsha Splenderosa said...

The Italian part of me has absolutely NEVER been practical. Beauty over practical is the rule in my house. But, I know what you mean. You could make this wonderful in your own CONTESSA WAY.

Marsha Splenderosa said...

So happy you visited, Bonnie !!!
Thank you so much.

I love all of it especially the chandelier ;-)

Elizabeth Day said...

Although rustic is not my style, I do appreciate the combination. The silver plate grouping is actually where my eye went first, but that might be because of that gorgeous chandelier hanging above it. It is a lovely composition.

Celia M. High Heeled Life said...

This is just breath taking!!! GORGEOUS!

Marsha Splenderosa said...

I'm very far from rustic too, Elizabeth. However, the entire setting makes me happy just to look at it.

Marsha Splenderosa said...

Hey, Celia, thank you for visiting me. xx's

Marsha Splenderosa said...

Oh, I knew the chandelier would be your favorite !!!

What is it about a gorgeous chandelier? It is ALWAYS, ALWAYS a focal point. And so romantic!

I'm just about to clean mine in the entry hall. It's a challenge, but so much prettier when it sparkles brightly. sending love, D.
