I'm changing things around in the dining room and went back to hunt for this image from Mariette Himes Gomez's Rooms. I'm considering ordering brackets to go under the Chinoiserie mirrors.
While on the search for the image I noticed this for the first time. (I have looked through this book, truly, dozens of times.) I have that. No, not the frieze, the wine cooler. Yes, those wine coolers were available through Williams Sonoma when I got married. I have one. I don't love it enough to put it on my mantle. Heck, I'm not sure I even like them placed here all that much, but I think this is a nice reminder that everything doesn't have to be precious. I keep forgetting that.
