I love Meg Ryan.  I think I have seen all of her movies.  She seems like she’d be the same friendly, regular person in person as she plays in the movies.

When I was looking for a photo for this series, I stumbled across a photo tour of Meg’s home on Martha’s Vineyard.

Dining room in hamptons

Look at this little dining area!  It is so sweet and simple, we don’t even have to boil it down to get its essence. We can duplicate it literally.  What do we need?

Table, chairs, simple light fixture and  ideally, shiplap walls.  (Any Joanna Gaines fans out there?!?! You know she loves shiplap!) I’ve not done shiplap walls myself, but if you Google it, a ton of info, including some DIY’s, will come up.

Meg’s table is probably custom made.  It looks like a marble top with a wrought iron base.  I think the key to duplicating this table is just copying its simplicity and clean lines.  Add in four slip-covered parsons chairs and an old fashioned  pendant light.

Here’s a pendant light to try:light

 

Or if you don’t want to wire it, try this one:corded lightDo you have a room that you want me to duplicate?  Go to the contact page of my website and let me know:  http://calmandcollected.us/contact.html
