Dark Wood Affair...

Well, I guess it's no secret that I LOVE dark warm woods in my decor. Never had an interest in anything else really, except I do adore the cottage chippy paint pieces too. But my true love is dark finishes on wood, something about the richness and warmth. I've had my living room tables since we were first married 18 years ago. Yet, I never get tired of the wonderful simple richness of my queen anne tables. But like anything, I like to change things around, and I've looked around at replacement tables for a long time. I'm not ready to start on that project, but when I am - boy I know exactly what I want. I found this gorgeous furniture collection at Thomasville Furniture. It's called "Coterie" - the coffee table is just stunning. And it will fit right in with my queen anne dining room. I think you will agree that this collection is simply beautiful! If I could redo my entire house I would get each and every single piece of this collection. A few "dreamy" pictures to share of my love for these pieces.

This is the coffee table I want from Santa this year!
Here is the side table to match

and we can't forget the stunning lamp table...


  1. What beautiful classic pieces! I love your new header!

  2. What a great set, classic and solid!

  3. Hi Rose
    I haven't seen you for so long!!!
    I wish you a great week!!!

  4. I hope Santa is VERY good to you this year. Maybe he will bring the whole collection! It wouldn't hurt to ask him!

  5. Hi Rose,
    I with you on your love of rich dark woods. Even though I admire all the painted pieces that the gals are doing, the rich woods appeal to me the most. They bring that old look of stability into a room for me.
    I love your new hunt themed header.

  6. Hmmm... Maybe we can have first dibs on your old stuff when you replace it?! ha ha. ;-)

  7. Hey Ms. Rosa, How are you today? Those furniture pieces are very warm indeed. I like your new header. I call your style of decorating Library style. :)

  8. It's all beautiful. I want it too Santa!

    It's nice to meet you too. Thanks for visiting my blog. I've been stalking/visiting yours for awhile now. :-)


  9. Oh, those are beautiful pieces by Thomasville! Love that collection. I'd definitely say those are classic. I just picked up my new chest of drawers today from the antique store and lo and's old Thomasville. YAY!! I love it.


  10. I grew up with dark woods. Now, that I'm here in the States, all our furniture is light wood.

    Anyway, thanks for visiting my blog. I like yours. Great passion for home design--something I love too.

  11. OH that dark wood just looks so elegant and pretty! Love it :)


  12. Whilst trying to find their Hemingway Collection's writing desk (which seems to have been discontinued [so sad!! I lusted for it so!]), I found THIS item that I think is extraordinary. (and after a moment's reflection and focus ... I realized why a Man would find it so alluring [smile].) But it is, nonetheless, beautiful.
