A week ago, some of our furniture was moved to the ranchburger. I haven't yet seen it in person. But I'm looking at Bandwidth's photos and dreaming.
The round table was perfect in the Georgian, but I'm thinking it may look better somewhere else. Maybe the dining room? It has the same chandelier (below) and neutral backdrop. That table is pretty; it just needs the right spot--plus a past, its own history. You know, a rip roaring game of Monopoly, Risk, or Scrabble. And a memorable dinner party.
I'm thinking my old breakfast table needs to be auditioned in the burger's breakfast room. In my dream, the old table (with the bench) looks just right. But that's a lot of moving, and already I can hear Bandy sighing. :-) We'll bring it over one chair at a time, Bandy.
It just says, "You're home." I do love the trendy RH table, but the girl who bought it has changed in her old age. She's a whole different girl. Memories and comfort mean a lot--sometimes a "heart piece" just looks better than anything else in the world.
You may remember the black counter stools from the Georgian.
I'm not opposed to painting them.
Looking forward to getting well and cooking in the kitchen.
It doesn't feel like home, but I know something that will help.
Where should Mr. Rooster go?
The movers brought the beds, and I think Medana must have added the linen, bless her.
I don't have any idea what to do with the guest room.
I don't have a headboard, and the old night-tables need a little revamping; but I still have an idea or two for the Master. Not going to worry about draperies because plantation shutters will be here soon.
Why not try holiday-inspired bedding? I love that idea.
The rattan chairs are waiting for me on the screened porch, sitting on the blue rug pad, trying not to feel lost. They won't be lonely for long. I have two more chairs, and I know they'd be happy together.
Formerly, these chairs were very happy in the Georgian's breakfast room. Though you can't see the table, it's an old gateleg that my mother and father found at an estate sale. That sweet table can go many places--maybe behind the blue sofa? Or used as a wonderful desk?
Speaking of which . . . the sofa made it to the man cave, though I, in my puny state, have not. Just looking at the photos, I think the blue may act like a neutral. (The rug behind the sofa goes on the screened porch, btw). The dark table on the right wall has been in several houses. The TV will go on the table, which means the sofa and chairs will need to be pushed back.
I'm still going to try a splash of navy.
After one year of waiting, it's so good to finally have a place to sit and dream.
