The things you love make a house a home.
My design mentor and friend Al has a very full basement. He runs his business from it and stores everything imaginable there- from tools, furniture, magazines, books, and dozens of boxes of who-knows-what. In the midst of renovating our house, Al would periodically stop by to check our progress. One day he asked about my plans for a kitchen table. I told him I had an oak one that I wasn’t too thrilled with. And that’s when he suggested a vintage Formica table that he had in his basement. In all the years I had worked for Al, I had never noticed such a thing. He said it was hidden underneath some stuff- that was his way of saying that it was buried somewhere! It would be quite a job to get it out, but he was willing. Days passed. Weeks passed. No table. I finally figured that if I wanted it, I’d have be obnoxiously assertive. So I called him and said I’d be over in fifteen minutes to pick it up in a borrowed truck. As I pulled up to his huge Victorian house, there he was lugging the table out through the basement door!
And I love how it looks in our kitchen! Thanks, Al!

Sigh…. I love your little eating nook!
I love the view, the beadboard ceiling, the traditional mixed with the more modern lines of the table (which is fabulous) and the chairs.
Looks wonderful! It’s unexpected in the space, which I love, thanks for sharing.
