My Favorite Room: Sherry Hart of Design Indulgence

Today I welcome the one and only Sherry Hart here to share her favorite room.  Take it away Sherry!!!



First of all, let me say this.  I love Rene.  I love her blog.  There.  One of the reasons I love her is that when I first started blogging and would leave a comment....she would answer me back with a little sarcasm and off we would go......back and forth.  I like that in a person.  Humor has always been important to me.


I am supposed to show you guys my favorite room.  Well, that changes on a weekly basis.  It all depends on which room I have "torn" up to change.  WHAT????  Don't make that look...I know you do it too.

Well you are in for a treat because today I have pictures of my keeping room over the years.  When we first renovated our house in 1993 it was intended to be used as a dining area.

Here she be.....



Table, chairs.....we never used it.  In my opinion it was never quite big enough.  Not sure why there is only 1 shade up.  Who knows.

It did not last very long that way and I turned it into a small sitting area.  You are gonna laugh now.  Go on...I won't hold it against you.  But in my defense this was about 15 years ago.




I can barely look at this without laughing.  Hee Haw!  Snot just blew out my nose......

Here is the picture from the BH&G article.





Now I have changed it a little.  You would think I would have left it alone right.  Good enough for a magazine....don't touch.  Nah.....I like to play.






Pardon the cords....I could have unplugged but I was too lazy.






I added the curtains to soften it a little.  You buy that???  Nah...I got tired of cleaning my windows :)






I change out the pillows and accessories all the time.  Yep.  There's a news flash for you.




Hey.....how about that........it is still the same table.  Some things never change.





Did move the other white lamp somewhere else.  Got the black fabric over the chair at Scott's.  It is a Kuba clothe from Africa.




This sucker has doubled in height since I got it at the beginning of summer.

  This is my favorite room because it is where my husband sits at night so I can rub his feet after a hard days work.  WHAT???  You don't do that?  Bad wifey.
No serious....This is the sunniest place in my house and I love to sit here and plot further changes to my spaces......





This here is the end of the keeping room story as told by Sha Dazzle.  Hope you enjoyed and your popcorn lasted through the whole show.  I hate when I go to the movies and I eat all mine before it even starts.  I like to put goobers in my popcorn.

Thanks Rene.

Sherry Hart, I love you.  Period.  By the way, thanks so much for sharing your favorite room with us!  To see more of Sherry's work go here.

  5. I love Sherry, too. She is a hoot. I know she said we would laugh at the first room, but it is so Charles Faudree and I liked it. It does look great now.

  8. The thing that I love about Sha Dazzle, aside from her sense of humor, is that she shows us that design is a process, a room is never done and it's okay to experiment. She makes it okay to not be perfect; it's okay for pillows to have dog ears and sometimes you just got to work with the straight-ass hair you have.

    All valuable lessons.

  9. Sherry, this was fabulous! I love that you don't take it all too seriously. And, really, shouldn't spaces evolve over time? The room clearly is more "user-friendly" set up as a true sitting area rather than for dining.

  15. What a great space. The blinds look so good on the windows and I love the drop leaf table. The floral pillow on the wicker chair is so cute. Did you make those?

  16. Love Sherry, love her blog, and love this room!! It looks like a cozy cafe but the best part is that it's actually in her home! I adore the pillows and that black side table.

  17. Sherry is such a rebel! If BH&G featured a room in my house, I probably wouldn't touch it for another 20 years. Glad she's not afraid to mix things up. And, she's damn funny, which is another reason I love her blog.

  18. Sherry is a trip. I love her blog, she makes me laugh every post. I think it is so smart that she made this a sitting room. People always end up hanging in and around the kitchen anyway. The room is so bright and pretty. I love all the natural fibers, and even that big ole green plant looks amazing! What is that thing?

  31. Hi Sherry and Rene-

    Love your room - bright and light and lots of texture. Goobers are my favorite movie snack - Hubby goes for the popcorn. Next time we have a movie date night I will have to taste test them together.

  37. They booted my butt right out of wifey school.....and yet I'm still married. Hmmmmm....


    The space is perfection. My favorite things are the table, the lamp and the ceiling light fixture.

    How far do you live from Delaware??? You could work wonders in my house.
