Today I hope that everyone will pop over to The Shiny Pebble to check out my guest post. Catherine Hopkins has been doing an excellent series on her blog where she has asked a group of interior design bloggers to do a virtual makeover of her dining room. I kept all of her existing furniture and focused on Chinoiserie accessories, transforming her traditional Houston dining room in her newly built home into a timeless and elegant British colonial oasis. This makeover reflects my design approach that fabric and accessories are what make or break a room, not the furniture. Thanks also to The Daily Basics for featuring this series.
