Inspired by: Dallas Shaw's Dining Room

Dallas Shaw Dining Room

I read an embarrassing number of blogs. For me it's like sitting down with a magazine where you got to handpick every article. Some blogs I follow to sit and read but most of the blogs I follow are simply sources of inspiration and pretty. This year I thought it'd be fun to highlight style statements from the bloggers that I find particularly lovely and then to hunt down thoughtful pieces that go with looks that define them. It's a personal challenge for me and I hope it's fun for you!

I'm starting with the near perfect Dallas Shaw. Dallas is an artist and style expert with impeccable taste and a client list of fashions elite. Her blog is simple, fresh and absolutely lovely. If you like fashion but don't like snobbery you'll like her blog. Promise!

Although we probably could have focused on anything from her personal style to her insanely cool closet, I picked her dining room which is my favorite dining room ever. And when I say favorite dining room ever, this is coming from a girl who still has 5 year old copies of Domino magazine on her book shelf "for reference" yes, I've seen a stupid number of dining rooms and this is the one I'd copy piece for piece if I could.
