Too Hot to Paint Tables...

Unfortunately... I do not have air conditioning working properly in my home and it is extremely HOT and SMOKEY due to all the Wild Fires in the Los Angeles area... and I feel too miserable to paint... but I did not want to completely disappoint you... so I Googled "French Dining Rooms" and now... Please ENJOY a few tables I thought I would love to share with you...


Imagine YUMMY delights on these tables like these...
And be sure to visit other FAB Tablescape Thursday participants via Between Naps on the Porch... I hope to be back tomorrow with a Fashionable Friday post for you!!!

Fifi,
Bummer to have no air conditioning.
I sure hope those fire get under control soon. I always think of the helpless little animals.
I'll take the red dining room. :)

O, Fifi...smelling smoke is way to dang close for comfort. Are they getting any of this fire under control yet? Pls. be careful and I know you are being very watchful.
Stay safe,

Hi Fifi
Sorry to hear about the fires over your way. It has been on the news here and we Australians know only too well what living through the bushfire season means.

On a happier note, I love the images you have found. The purple one I have in my files 'somewhere' and the others are delightful also. Take care x Julie

Love the yellow one so bright and cheery. Hope it cools down soon and I pray the fires stop.

Charlie said...

Fifi, I am so sorry to hear that you are being affected by the fires. I hope they manage to contain them quickly.

Thank you for posting these awesome rooms, especially under the circumstances. They are lovely! Hugs my dear.

What an array - it is interesting to see how the basic table can be jazzed up! xxx

be safe, ms. fifi!

Hi Fifi, lucky for us in SD we are not getting any of the smoke. A storm brewing in Baja has managed to shift everything over to AZ - unfortunately, it's still hot here and I have no air AC either. I love all the pictures but am attracted to the simplicity of #4.

Fifi, Those elegant dining rooms were gorgeous, however, I know that I would be most comfortable at the cafe table.

No air and the smoke--the combination is very bad!! The tables are very pretty--maybe they will help you dream of a smokeless area!

Bonjour Fifi!
Worried about you S. Californians...be careful & stay safe. While purple is my favorite color, I love the simplicity of those yellow walls, paired with the classic thonet chairs perfected by the punch of the goblet's profile. If you're swoonin like me, I saw a website for Thonet repros in F&W recently-ChairUp.com! Yay!

La Belette Rouge said...

It is even too hot to eat. But it is never to hot to drink in beauty. Thanks for serving it up so beautifully.

Martha said...

Sorry about the A/C, it's terrible up here too. I hope you and your family, your friends too stay safe. Ah, the joys of living in Paradise, c'est oui?

Hello Fifi...

Thank you for sharing these fabulous french dining rooms!!! Ohhh my...such "eye candy"! I can't even begin to imagine having such a dining room...my little french country dining room "pales" in comparison but I do love anything and everything French!!!

Wishing you well, my friend!!!

Lovely table settings. I hope you aren't to close to the fires. It must be horrible with all that smoke, as I remember all to well from fires just before we left there, and to have the AC not working right now.. arrgh.

DailyDivaDish said...

Hi Fifi- Sorry the fires are so close. But thanks for posting these fabulous photos. Also wanted to let you know, the paintings I ordered from you arrived and are perfect! =)

Sarah said...

Beautiful rooms. Love those vibrant purple walls!
Good luck with the air conditioning.

montague said...

stay as safe and smoke free as you can!

Kelli said...

Fifi,
These are beautiful! I feel the same way about working or doing anything for that matter. My body temp is SO high and petit bébé is NOT helping. Trying to find a place to go for a swim... ah, water is all that sounds good right now.
Take care in the heat & fires,
K

Arleen @ Seasons for All at Home said...

Bonjour Fifi. I love the first dining room! Christmas-icy blue and white is one of my favorite color combinations, and it's the perfect palette to keep you cool! I hope you and your family are at a safe distance from the fires, and I hope they are out soon!

Take care,
~Arleen

Brenda said...

Some days we just need to revise the agenda dear Fifi, so you have done well. A most Fifi'ish array of gorgeousness.
Millie ^_^

Kat said...

beautiful interior design!

Denise @ Swelle said...

Thank you thank you! Gorgeous! The most decadent is my favourite. Oh, how to have a house where this would be possible...

Autumn said...

I love the deep eggplanty-purple of the wall with the white table, and the sunny warm yellow of the other wall--nice, bold colors. Your blog has so much color and life!

Thanks for your visit!

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Oh, Mlle Fifi! I am so sorry to hear you were hit by both bad A/C and those horrible fires. :-( Hope all is getting back to normal, and that your paintbrush is back in hand where it belongs!

Hope these last days of your summer are lovely...I'm still wondering where my summer went! By the way, Mlle. Jean from I Love Upstate and I are plotting a road trip that I think you especially would be proud of. That is my hint. ;-)
