We are playing the musical chair game over here. When I started my search for new dining chairs for my dining room, I quickly realized that my eyes were after mid-century dining chairs. Why? Well, I don’t quite know. Perhaps it’s because I think that most mid-century looking furniture are just absolutely gorgeous. So, after browsing online while obsessing about mid-century design, I picked my top four mid-century dining chairs.
The first option is the Holt Mid Century Bent Wood Accent Chair. I love the look of this chair and its colors. The way the legs are attached to the base seem very sturdy, however, the light-colored fabric scares me a little. Because I have three kids, whenever I am shopping for a fabric, I always choose leather.
Option number 2 is the Lena Mid-Century Dining Chair. The simplicity of this chair is what I like about it. Sometimes, you need neutral pieces in order for an item to stand out. Since our concrete dining table makes the room feel a little “heavy”, I believe that simple wooden chairs might be just what we need for the space.
Option number 3 is the Porthos Home Olivia Dining Chair. This chair has the perfect combination of leather and wood. It’s as if the most delicious ingredients have been carefully put together to create the perfect mixed drink. What a beauty!
The final option is the Sidera chair in white. This chair has the perfect legs and the most beautiful base pattern. This chair is also available in black, but since I am trying to make the room feel softer, I think the white tone would do the trick.
I do believe I have a favorite option. What do you think? Could you use any of these chairs in your dining room?

Happy 2017! I am so excited for new beginnings and many new projects that I hope this year will bring us. Last year we worked on some great projects, like the room for seven, the rustic chandelier, and one of my favorites, my office makeover.
We started the office remodel sometime in the summer. We wanted to make the room brighter, more feminine, more welcoming, and more Trendy. Get it? Prior to the makeover, the space did what it was supposed to do but didn’t feel very inspiring. It had a great working area for three computers and lots of storage space. With two big windows, the lighting was pretty good, but the dark-colored walls felt a little sad. I also wanted to transform this office into a shared space, creating room for a play area for the kiddos.
So for this office makeover to work, we focused on the following items:
We are wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas. Here is hoping 2017 will be a terrific year for all. Xo, Patchi

I am happy to say that Casa Cancado is Holiday ready! Getting our home ready for the holidays is a very special time for me. I love to make the house feel festive, and I also love that there are so many ways of going about it. What are some of your DOs and DON’Ts when decorating for the Holidays? How is your home for the holidays?
Here are a few of my MUST haves and must NOT haves when decorating for Christmas time.
When decorating the Christmas tree, I feel that most ornaments MUST color coordinate. Also, the Christmas tree must NOT be too lean. I like the tree to be big and fat with lots of lights.
Today we are showing how-to-style an entryway for the holidays in three different ways. We’ve put together a festive look, an elegant and modern look, and finally, a simple, yet gorgeous winter look.
1:: Bright and Festive, but not too festive
First, we wanted to create a holiday look that was not very traditional. So for this look, we chose our “Ink and Charcoal” print to add a subtle color to the room. In addition, we’ve bundled a couple of decorative Christmas trees together. Grouping similar items together is the best way to make them stand out. For the greenery, we added a plant from around the house instead of a traditional Christmas greenery.
