Sorry for the very late post today- life has been KICKING my butt recently. So much stuff at work and home and when that happens, the blog tends to be the one to feel the growing pains. Anyways, it’s been a while since I did a High / Low room comparison and I thought a laid back dining room would be the perfect space to do. These rooms looks pretty darn similar, but vary VASTLY in price. And the “high” isn’t even trade-only pieces, just nicer pieces from retail stores — THIS is why people get surprised at the grand totals for one single room :) It all adds up SO fast… (or not, as is the case of my budget room). Of course, you get what you pay for quality-wise, but by mixing and matching higher end pieces and budget finds you can also find a happy medium!

Love both plans!
Love the “low” buffet- I have been looking for something to add to my dining room before the holidays, and this just might work! Thanks for posting.
It’s a good thing!! franki
I love when you do these posts! They are some of my favorites!!
Thank you!! High/Low posts are my fav! We need one from Henry’s room :)
Looks great! Love these posts!
Love this series! Wonderful, inspiring post.
I love a high/low! It’s just a personal favorite thing, so this got my attention right away. Stating the obvious, you can also do some high/low mixing in the same room, if you can establish the level of quality. Love your blog, love your books, and love that Henry! (It’s just been a while since I’ve said that; never hurts to pay a compliment.) Thanks for all the great ideas.
Love a good high low. Some of the pieces are seemingly identical in look but not in price.
