The Way YOU Are- The Fabulous Design File

Time for another peek inside yet another fabulous home, Carissa from The Fabulous Design File! I love this room!!!!!

Carissa's favorite spot...

I was so excited when Leah asked me to be part of this feature!Then I looked around my house and thought, uh oh... what room could I possibly share??? I love bits and pieces of most rooms in my house, but none of them are quite ready to show off on Leah's fabulous blog!!! Then I took a breath and realized that I was being a just a little bit crazy. Because really, I like it that my home is constantly evolving. It will probably never be "done." So here it is...

My favorite room is my dining room. It's the one room in my house that doesn't scream "two little boys live here!!!" I think that the best part is the wallpaper:







I love the chandelier... it was the first thing that I installed when we moved into the house. It lights up the metallic wallpaper and gives off a great sparkle in the evening.





The dining room is also home to a few treasures that I have collected: the sunburst clock that my sister found at a garage sale for $1, my gold thrift store lamp, and the old dresser that I rescued from my sister's garage (it was holding tools, now it stores my table cloths!)





Thanks again Leah! I think this is such a fun feature and I'm so excited to be part of it!


Thank you Carissa! Your dining room is gorgeous!!! The wallpaper is so fab and I am so happy you rescued that adorable dresser!!!

A great example of restraint in decorating. The wallpaper is the star in the room, she edited the accessories perfectly.
