Darlings , one is utterly shattered. Mr. Lee could have woken the grave with his howls, moans and teeth grinding. Fingers crossed for an easy day and a peaceful night.
Do you have any design tricks ?
One thing I have learnt over the years is that rugs are anchors. Set them beneath a dining table or under seating to define spaces and zone areas. Another trick is when space is at a premium make things disappear . If only that would work with husbands.

Currently at Chez Lee we are without a dining room. That is not to say we don’t have a dining table, we do, 2. One in the sitting room and another in the kitchen. What we are lacking is space . The solution is not to block the eye with a heavy cumbersome chair but to take the eye through it. Ghost chairs are just the ticket and have been en vogue for a while. With good reason. They fit the bill perfectly.

Modern, chic, unobtrusive . They fit into either contemporary or classical homes.

Outside living in small places.

Darlings I know you will find it hard to but up until a couple of months ago I was an Ikea virgin. I kid you not. After fruitless and countless visits the only things purchased have been hotdogs .
Then some charming glass dinnerware was spotted.

Even with 8 place setting the effect is still light and magical.
