Let's get back to Connie's Vermont dining room.
To refresh your weakening memories.....
here's an overall shot of the room.

If you've been following this blog....
(and shame on you if you haven't),
she loves the color coral, as shown in her Florida home.
Here's a shot of her Flerida beach house living room with tons of coral accents.
We used coral as the main colorway in her mountain dining room.
We started with the buffalo check, which I had used in the living room, and then found a wallpaper that worked with it.
When I want to do an open flowing color-scheme for part of a house, I use some of the same fabrics in each room.
I just use them differently in each space.
In the living room, I used the check on a club chair,
so in the dining room, I used it on the draperies.
We really lucked out when I went to look for a floorcovering.
I found this wonderful Sarouk woven rug at Stark that matched the color scheme perfectly!!!!!
Then I found the chair fabric, and it all just fell together.
If you believe it was really that easy, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.....
I wanted to edge the hanging lampshade with a detail that had the same feel as the room, and couldn't believe it when I found this tassel trim mounted on a plaid ribbon.
who would ever make a trim with a plaid ribbon and tassels?????
I obviously am just using the same picture and blowing it up for my detail shot.
That's why it's so blurry.....
I really need to get up to Vermont and take some decent pictures.
I love the look of checked fabric made into draperies!!!!
so I'm going to go sit on my terrace,
read a trashy book about witches,
and have a nice cool glass of water.
go outside and play,
and stop reading my stupid blog.....
On that note,
