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?

  6. 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

  8. 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.

    1. 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.

  11. 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.

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