Room(s) Envy

Love everything about this living room. My snapshot doesn't quite represent the pretty, bleached palette of this room. (Original photography by Lisa Romerein, designer not known)
More room envy. A reproduction dining table was refinished to look much older. One of my favorite parts of this open dining area is the large urn in front of the window, off to the right. (Original photography by Simon Upton, designer not known)
The pics above are from House Beautiful 500 Makeovers - a book that I really enjoy referring back to often. The only thing is that the designers aren't listed; not sure why that is.
You probably already know this, but just in case, Katie Denham of KatieDid is posting wonderful pictures from her visit to the very impressive San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2010. This dining room was created by Suzanne Tucker of Tucker and Marks Design. Go here to see more -so far it's a five part series!

Oh, don't you just love to hate rooms like these that are all lovely. I love that glass front cabinet.
Katie's photos of the tour are incredible.
I could spend days glued with my sketch pad....

Beautiful. I always seem to love high contrast. The dark cabinet. Everything white pops. Now to see the SF Showcase!

I refer to the House Beautiful book often too. Those first two rooms are gorgeous - love everything about them.

I am in love with the couch in the first photo- it looks like I should take a nap on it right now.

Design is grand and these spaces are so soothing to look at and even better to live in. Isn't beautiful house design grand!
