In yesterday’s post (here) I showed you a cute idea I saw at the Decorators’ Showcase home here in Lexington. Today we are on the same porch (there are four), and I want you to see the items they have on their table top. Remember, I used my iphone, and the photo quality could be better.
The table was not an old one, but it had that old look to it.
Instead of a tray, the “homeowner” uses an old dough bowl to carry items from the kitchen to the porch table.
The plates are equestrian themed. Why not? The house is surrounded by horse farms.
This cute candle is under a demi-john that has had its bottom cut out.
Isn’t this a cute carafe for coffee or tea?
The runner was a bluish gray burlap. Burlap was used on many of the windows throughout the house.
A plate rack hanging nearby held more of the equestrian plates.
This view is taken from the sitting area which was pretty cool, too.
Isn’t this trunk turned coffee table adorable? There is another one of those demi-johns missing its bottom. Poor thing.
Here is a side table. I’m not sure how long those nuts would last on an outdoor porch in the real world.
Two contemporary side chairs fit right in because of their texture and color.
This masculine pillow was perfect on the side chairs.
These botanical prints were perfect. The brick was hand-made on the property when the house was built in 1885.
Here is one more peak. It makes alfresco dining even more appealing.
