My Guest Post on The Shiny Pebble


Today I hope that everyone will pop over to The Shiny Pebble to check out my guest post. Catherine Hopkins has been doing an excellent series on her blog where she has asked a group of interior design bloggers to do a virtual makeover of her dining room. I kept all of her existing furniture and focused on Chinoiserie accessories, transforming her traditional Houston dining room in her newly built home into a timeless and elegant British colonial oasis. This makeover reflects my design approach that fabric and accessories are what make or break a room, not the furniture. Thanks also to The Daily Basics for featuring this series.

Beth, you did such a fantastic job! Over and over again I hear from readers saying how yours is their favorite design. Your traditional sensibility and attention to detail paired with a great sense of style has made this a must see makeover. I also appreciated the fact that you gave me options to every item... that is a great way to consult!!! I had very definite opinions on your selections. Which is amazing... chinoiserie is chinoiserie but with enough variation to accomodate different tastes within the spectrum. Thank you so much again for participating on the challenge.
