You know how this happens in blogland~
I started chatting with Loretta from Full Bloom Cottage.
Turns out she did two pieces for Lauren Ross in
whose home is my favorite in the book,
makes beautiful linen slipcovers for most of her furniture.
Lauren's dining room is above.
I just love Lauren's style.
Lauren's den with her famous pink chest.
Quite possibly one of my top ten rooms, also LR.
At any rate, Loretta has gorgeous style too and I discovered
her lovely dining room on her blog.
Look at her "before" below
(it looks like an after, doesn't it?)
Before, with aqua walls and slipcovered dark chairs.
After: Creamy walls,
slipcovered french cane back chairs
and linen drapery panels.
This was before she changed the chairs
and added a side table under the mirror,
but you can peek into the room a bit better.
A greige wall in a chic french bedroom~wow Loretta!

So while I finish painting my dining room greige,
go check out Loretta's blog and shop for some french inspiration!
