Shades of Green

20110901-081251.jpg With the dining table set up in the expanded space, I am having so much fun changing out the table design often. The last version was faux bois, twigs, creams, clear glass and browns. This round I thought I would do the table in varying shades of green. One piece can throw me in that direction. In this case, it was the vintage green library filing cabinet that was sitting lonely in a corner, that I knew would look stellar in the middle of the table giving great height, and adding unexpected visual interest.

And lastly, new candlesticks that just arrived yesterday from my buying trip to New York, with different stripes of green candles to pull it all together.
