I've been inspired by the vignettes that designers like Nicole Balch at Making it Lovely and others have been putting together for both their homes and some virtual projects. Now I've tried my hand at it in an effort to make some decisions about the "refreshening" of some of our rooms now that we have gone all topsy turvy with their functions. I want to work mostly with the items I have, and of course make it family friendly (i.e., not too expensive and easy to clean/hard to ruin) but pull it together with accessories. Above is my attempt to figure out what to do with the breakfast area and kitchen which are connected and which also flow into the dining room/entry way. This is what I have come up with so far. Not sure what I think about it. How about you?

I am going to be using the multi floral fabric to replace the curtains in the formal dining area and I already have the aris pedestal table. We are also thinking about adding a bench/banquette to one side of the table for more seating and more space in the center of that room. I still need to think about a light fixture and how that will relate to the fixture I choose for over the dining room table since you can see both of them at the same time. Argh. Any ideas are wlecome(:
