Fabulous Room Friday 03.25.11

I love the casual, layered elegance of this dining nook by Nathan Turner. I really like the simple tablecloth with the wide black band as well as the beautifully upholstered chairs. It all looks very European, doesn’t it? The perfectly-bookshelves and slightly off-center chandelier make the space feel a little more laid back, but no less inviting. It’s all so lovely!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Anything with black and bookshlelves is a winning combination in my book! I did a huge post today on black in interiors, this picture would fit right in! Beautiful….elegant while being inviting and sophisticated.

  2. This is a very lovely room, it feels put together but very casually – I like that! I personally love the not so organized bookshelves, looks like they actually read the books instead of just display them…

  3. I love the casual elegance of it..bookshelves and chandelier- a combination that rarely disappoints! thankyou for your lovely comment on my blog, Paloma..i hope you’ll visit more often…a lovely weekend to you too! xx meenal.

  4. I am currently turning my dining room into a reading/dining room. Inky slate blue is up on the walls. Baseboards given a fresh coat of hi-gloss white. Next week = bookshelves.

    Thanks for posting this because it confirms my suspicion that my rectangular table would be much better switched out for a round one!

  5. I like the room. I love high contrast spaces, though, and the white & black combo is just such a classic one. I’m not sure it looks really European to me, though. Maybe it looks more “American-trying-a-little-to-look-European”, lol. Seems to me a European wouldn’t coordinate the chair upholstery and tablecloths like this. It strikes me like it’s a little “off” (which is very nice, here, too) but not quite confident enough to be *really off* and still fab. But, seriously, what the heck do I know?
