You know when people say they're going to "their happy place?" Like when its a stressful situation and they close their eyes breath in and imagine themselves on some tropical island, by the beach, or maybe on a mountaintop? Yeah, I do that too. I close my eyes and go to "my happy place" frequently when I need a break from the real world. Only my happy place isn't a mountain top, it's William Sonoma. Or Pottery Barn. In a 1998ish. In NYC With Harry Connick Jr. or Ella Fitzgerald playing in the background. Okay, basically its a Romcom.
You know why I love Romcoms? Not for the romance...or the comedy...or any of that. I love them for the real estate. People always have really great apartments and homes, and really great cocktail parties and tablescapes.
So while I can't live in an NYC romcom circa 1998, I can make my dining room feel like William Sonoma at Thanksgiving...and that's almost the same thing! So here it is, my Fall Dining Room Tour with sources!
