This image sealed the deal..

I'm sure you've seen this recent image from Elle Decor or via blog-land..I LOVE this dining room and have been contemplating what I want to do for dining chairs in my home. Louis XVI style dining chairs have been all the rage for a few years now, but I'm still drawn to their classic lines and clean style, they virtually work with almost any "look"..this photo pretty much sealed the deal for me last week. {all of these photos did actually} Ballard Design has a similar style available in a white finish, for a great price. I'm going to cover them in a parrot green linen {see color below}! Another decision off my list - check.



How can you forget this fabulous shoot of Katie Lee Joel's house in Domino? Love the look and the chairs of course.

Julie, I like where this is going. Love the Parrot green. How fun and exciting. Isn't it cool to research and find so many ispirational images to seal the deal, as you put it, Have fun, can't wait to see the finished product. Kathysue

I love those chairs! Eventhough they are hot right now, I really think the design is timeless. Katie Lee's place is one of my all-time favorites! The Ballard chairs are such a fantastic option. Please do share some pics with us once your chairs are finished. Can't wait to see!

Love the green linen idea - they will look gorgeous! The image of Katie Lee's dining room with built-in's and a fireplace is a favorite! So beautiful!

love it. just bought the round/oval linen ones from Restoration hardware. super comfy and they look amazing. i think it would be cool to do one fabric on the front side and another on the back.
