tzi: dining room sneak peek

I couldn’t be more excited that the “Simply Chic” sale — otherwise known as … my Joss & Main Curator’s Collection — kicks off tomorrow!  I had so much fun putting together pieces that fit my clean, classic aesthetic.   What do you think of this rendering?

It’s a conceptual sketch of a dining room put together entirely from my Curator’s Collection.    I’d add some taffeta drapes to any windows and call it a (gorgeous) day!   After the sale launches, I’ll update this post with links to each of the products that I used in the room …. basically everything but the tea cups.  Click here to join Joss & Main if you haven’t already!

Worried that a dining room is too “precious” to actually use when you have young twins?   The statement chandelier and abstract art pieces are child-friendly ways to add sophistication to the space.  I mean, the chandelier is out of reach, so no worries there!  The rug is reasonably priced (and can be fiber-sealed), so you wouldn’t need to be overly concerned about stains or spills.  Add a linen Chair Apron to the seats … and you are good to go.  With dining rooms that truly function, there’s no need to add a “kids’ table” in the back.  Let everyone sit together, especially on special occasions like holidays!   I still do not suggest giving the babies cranberry sauce as finger food …  

How was your weekend?  My days are getting busier and busier as “Life in the Fast Lane,” 2012 NOMOTC Convention, draws near.  I can’t wait to welcome hundreds of twin and triplet moms to Charlotte!  In the meantime … here’s a peek at my “rock stars.”   I think you can guess which twin is rocking out to the Fresh Beat Band.  It’s a shame that the polo shirts and seersucker really kill the edge.  

Photos by moi.  Although if you come to the concert with us in September, you’ll get a live and in person version courtesy of my twinks!

    I'm looking forward to your sale too - how exciting. And oh my gosh, Sheila is OBSESSED with the Fresh Beat Band. She even knows the songs now too. And I've got the songs running through my head all day.
