If you’re in the market, MGBW is having a good sale on stock furniture right now. But what brought me down to their Soho store was 20 percent off any custom furniture. Including a curved banquette I’ve had my eye on since I started thinking about a round dining table.
I had been toying with yellow as an accent since I painted the dining room white, but as soon as I saw the Citron swatch in the store, I made up my mind. The only thing that held me back before was it going too Palm Beach (I know, I know!) and Viceroy (I know!). I love hollywood regency, but not as a full-on theme-y theme. Instead, I want a comfortable dining room that has the tools to be formal on occasion: sparkly chandelier, art hung salon-style, roomy chairs, and perhaps built-ins some day.
Of course, now that I’ve ordered the banquette, we’re going to cool it on dining room purchases until we recover and perhaps do not-house-related things with our money. And I’d like to see what the room feels like with a big yellow piece, live with it for a while. The rules of this decorating game (and really everything) are “quick, cheap, and good: choose two.” I made my quick and good purchase, time to find some cheap and good ones, which will take time!
