We’re excited to share the first installment of a new series where we’ll be highlighting the homes of some of our favorite bloggers. We love the way they’ve used our products in their spaces, so we thought we’d bring these bright ideas to you!

This week, we’ve been thinking about entertaining, and if it’s one thing we know about entertaining, it’s that everyone ends up in the kitchen. Because of that, we’re wanting to make sure both our dining room and our kitchens have style that counts! First stop, we’re sharing a polished rustic Easter tablescape by Decor Gold, and then we’re on to a super-chic black & white kitchen remodel by Bliss At Home.

Our sweet friend Jen at Decor Gold recently launched her blog, and we’re already swooning. This week, she pulled together an Easter tablescape that sets the stage for a warm family get-together. We love how she used our Amiel Arch Antique Leaner Mirror behind her chairs to make the space seem larger. Our fave tip from Jen? Instead of stressing out at the florist, snag some affordable blooms from Trader Joe’s.

Next, we came across this kitchen remodel by Bliss At Home – her kitchen was small, dark and cramped before, so she opened up the space and made it look crisp and clean with black and gold accents.

Our Hampton Banquette collection provides corner seating that doesn’t take up as much space as a set of traditional dining chairs – and we’re totally taken with the result. Don’t those pewter nail heads look fantastic?

Shauna, from The House of Silver Lining, describes her kitchen as having “old world charm,” and we love how she mixed in more contemporary finishes for an eclectic result.

She hung two of our Lourdes Chandeliers above her kitchen island. We love this tip from Shauna — paint your cabinets two different shades to break up a huge bank of storage.

      We absolutely LOVE hearing when our customers are pleased with our product, and you certainly did our Amiel Mirror justice by placing it in your dining room. It looks absolutely FANTASTIC!
