Things We Love:RoundEntryTable

Cindy Rinfret Design
There’s nothing like making a grand entrance. 
Nathan Egan Design
We all want our homes to feel inviting and open, the kind of place where friends and family want to gather and stay awhile.
Nicholas Haslam Design
There are few things we find as gracious as a perfect round entry table.
Ken Gemes Design
Paired with a stunning yet simple flower arrangement, an entry table is just the right way to make a great first impression.
Thornton Design
For those of you (like us!) who like a few well-placed accessories at every turn, stacks of books are a great way to fill in the blanks.

They help add height and interest.

Speaking of height, a basic floral arrangement is far from the only choice when accessorizing a round entry table. Live branches add a more modern touch.

A round entry table is so versatile for entertaining. It’s an instant space for overflow dinner guests, no flimsy card table required.

A fabulous centerpiece reaching up to a gorgeous fixture? We can’t think of a better way to say, “Welcome.”

There’s nothing quite so idyllic as a chic, country equestrian cottage.

Even if we don’t have a country home, we could all use a little equestrian chic in our every day decor.

Sure, why not invite the horse into dinner? What’s more equestrian chic than that?

Lodge touches like horn and leather add a masculine element to any home.

 If it’s good enough for Ralph, it’s good enough for us!

So we may not be from the horse country, but we have killer riding boots… We think it counts.

If this doesn’t make you want to start riding, we don’t know what will!

These photos have inspired us to pull on our boots and start looking for a horse! If anyone needs a last minute gift idea… Hope your holiday plans are all coming together!

Black Front Doors

Coming home is always a wonderful feeling. Pulling in the driveway, walking through the front door…

That’s why we think the front door is so, incredibly important!

We’ve been ruminating over color choices for the front door of the Beaufort house. It is white, white, white, and, looking at these homes, we can’t think of anything more classic and striking than a black front door. If you’re looking to do a little sprucing to your house too, it’s a great time to consider home improvement loans.

It’s gorgeous on these white backdrops, but, really, we can’t think of any facade where a black door wouldn’t look great.

The little black door…

It’s the little black dress of entryways.

It’s a bold statement to mark the passage between the outside world and your indoor sanctuary.

It’s the dividing line between outside stress and indoor relaxation.

We can’t think of a better way to say, “Welcome home!” 
We hope you’re all lounging around in your fat pants after a resplendent day of turkey and a few too many treats. Happy weekend!
