Chair Covers to D.I.E. For

needless to say, there's a lot to DIE for in the dining room....
just look at the details !!!

the owner has thought everything out so carefully, I think.
(i was just informed via the comments that this room belongs
to Jermaine of French Kissed & instagram Santa Barbara Style,
so now we know why it's so wonderful !!)

& for me, the old tablecloth is magical.

I've collected antique linens from all over the world,
& have piles of them in my linen storage closets.
I love everything about them, even the care one must use
& the laundering of them.  Crazy ???

what's going on in your dining room right now?



  1. That table setting is beautiful!

  6. Hi Marsha, thank you for this gorgeous picture of Jermaine's table, which she posted on her blog "French Kissed", sadly now defunct. She has amazing talent for styling! You can follow her instagram: SantaBarbaraStyle. Have a super day and keep those fabulous posts coming.

    1. OH, Noreen, I know Jermaine but didn't know this was her beautiful home. So happy you told me.
      I'll follow her on Instagram, of course. I found this image on TUMBLR without a source noted.
      You're WONDERFUL !!!

  7. I adore that table cloth too. With us it is still warm enough to have the doors and windows open all day long and the dining table has a vase of summer flowers with some autumnal foliage, I love natural flowers, spilling out of the vase as if they were placed there in a hurry teamed with sterling silver candles and candelabra.

  8. That tablecloth is exquisite! Love the whole room. What's going on here? I'll show you:


Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have taken a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
