Lots of random thoughts/questions going through my head. So I thought I might ask for your opinion on some things!
1. I have been searching high and low for the perfect hardware for my kitchen cabinets. Pulls for the drawers and knobs for the few upper cabinets. I think I've decided on this style.... I really love the look.
I haven't decided on unlacquered brass and trying to be patient for it to patina... or the hand-antiqued brass.
I will use the 4" (but really wish it came in 6"). Have you seen anything similar anywhere?
2. Outdoor Furniture... I could go on an on about this. I would like to go ahead and get some but we don't have it in the budget to get what I really would like. If you want something that will last a long time--- you are going to pay for it. I am saving my pennies for this collection by Summer Classics:

I am insipired by this image that I've shown on the blog before:
So what would you do for a temporary fix? Four adidrondak type chairs a table?
3. Dining Room... I've asked two of my most trusted blogger friends and they each picked the opposite from each other. So I thought I'd poll you! My dining room will be small and simple but will be considered a formal dining room. I'm thinking my farm table, slipcovered parsons chair, jute rug from West Elm, etc. The grey painted chest will sit to the right of the one window in the room. The thing I can't decide on is.... the chandelier for above the table. Here are the two that I have narrowed down (on this design board that I quickly threw together):
I haven't decided on the type of panels for the window, lamps, artwork, mirror, etc. And a friend recommended adding a dark band to the bottom of the parsons chairs for some contrast/color.... an idea that I love.
But back to the light fixture.... both fixtures are from Visual Comfort but very different from each other! Which do you like--- the one on the left is the Paris Flea Market Chandelier and the one on the right is Bryant Chandelier.
I think that's enough to cover today. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
