Today I am sharing photos + sources of our living dining space. Like I said in the Lonny Article, this was probably the hardest space to design. As much as I love open floor plans, they can be tricky at times. The photo above is of our living room. I still cannot believe I have a bright fuchsia pink rug in our house! My husband was very easy going during the whole design process but he did want some color. Not sure if a hot pink rug was what he had in mind. The good news is that I am not sick of it after a year of living here.

These peach lucite nesting tables from the 1960’s were one of the first things purchased for the space. One of my favorite color combinations is peach and brown so pairing them with the Stone Textile Tribe Print in Brown works well.
We needed a very large coffee table for the space so after months of looking I decided to purchase four end tables, by Control Brand, and put them together. It is now the perfect space for all of our coffee table books + collection of decorative accessories.
The dining room had to work with the living room so I designed the two spaces together. The Milo Baughman chairs were also purchased early on. They were originally a peachy color and were in desperate need of a good reupholstery job. I chose a solid heavyweight black fabric so these chairs stay versatile and maintain their MCM vibe. The were purchased at one of my favorite vintage stores in Dallas called Give + Take. The lucite table base is a favorite. I found this in West Palm Beach and had it shipped to Austin. I had a smoked glass top made for it. We sadly may have to put this in storage when the baby starts walking — def NOT KID FRIENDLY! The artwork is by Austin based artist, Elisa Gomez. The colors are made for the space. I love that it has a graffiti like feel to it. Our dining room light fixture was a Craigslist find–$75!
I knew I wanted to do a unique wallpaper in the guest bathroom. When I was in New York, I came across a vintage wallpaper store called Second Hand Rose. I have a thing for metallics so when I saw this geometric mylar paper from the 70’s I knew it had to come home with me.
