I’m having a great time working with Colorado Style Home Furnishings to turn the house at 5 Waterside Terrace in Cherry Hills Village into a home. It’s time to furnish my favorite, the dining room. I love visiting the Colorado Style showrooms; they are located side-by-side just off University Blvd. and C-470, near Highlands Ranch. An ever-changing inventory of hundreds of pieces, ranging from sofas, chairs and dining room tables to lamps, oil paintings, rugs, and silk flower arrangements make for a pleasant and satisfying walk through the stores.
With the entertaining season just around the corner, and knowing that the dining room is the focal point for so many gatherings, I chose an eight-foot rectangular table with a Tuscan, Old World vibe. It has an aged feel, and an ornate, beautiful pedestal base. No need for a tablecloth here, this table was meant to be seen and used! Happily, I didn’t need to wait weeks for delivery—I was able to have the piece brought to the home right away. It was tough to choose between the embossed leather chairs or the upholstered style; each featured nailhead trim and classic lines.
Over the table, I placed a magnificent verdi-aged bronze chandelier with seashell light bowls; to my mind, it’s a piece of sculpture that also happens to illuminate the room. Nearby, a curved-door buffet with ironwork accents stands ready to handle the parties. The walls are now adorned with hand-painted oils that I chose from the showrooms; the forests and water scenes create a comfortable mood for this space.
