Girls Afternoon In My Kitchen

Welcome to my new dining room. What do you think?!?!? I just recently upgraded my table and it has completely transformed my kitchen and dining room space. I had the table custom built by my friend who owns Urban Roots. I have always loved his work but never imagined the table that we designed together to turn out this beautifully, and I was also able to install a new water system thanks to the ideas I got from the water softener reviews.

I originally bought farmhouse metal chairs to go with it, but I thought the space lacked character and texture.  SO … I returned them and went to Taylor’s antiques (one of my favourite antique stores in Kelowna) and rummaged through their stuff. I found 8 mis-matched vintage chairs all within the same colour scheme and brought them home to try. I absolutely love them and they were a fraction of the price!!!

I picked some fresh apples off my tree and threw some BC Tree Fruit plums in a bowl … and decided to invite the girls over for an afternoon lunch. Tori from Fraiche Nutrition of course brought an amazing charcuterie spread (she never disappoints) which was the cherry on top to breaking in the new dining room!!!

  1. The mismatched chairs are FAB. It’s always more welcoming to come into a home and have rooms not bought straight from a retailer but with thought attached, and some real originality. Making your space personal is a must IMO, as it’s your life space and the place you should be happiest and most content. Well done, Jillian.

  2. The best part about building that table for you was taking your requests and trying to see your vision and put it all together in that table. When we delivered it to you and I saw how much you loved it, that too was rewarding for me. To know that there will be memories built around that table is what means the most to me when I create a piece of furniture. Thanks again Jillian!!

  3. Beautiful and unique table!! Just gorgeous! And love the mis matched antique farm type wood chairs….it’s unexpected and whimsical! Can you come to Calgary and help me with any room in my house! Lol

  4. I love love love this space! It’s like an upscale farmhouse dining room with tons of character. Beautifully done Jillian!

    1. What is the size of this table?and the color?
      This table fits 6 nicely?
      Can you tell me if you just made the identical table for your home in Kelowna?

      Thank you.
