Craigslist Boston Find: Complete Heywood Wakefield Dining Room

When Boston-based reader Syrene wrote to me asking whether I’d blog about the dining room (table, 6 chairs, leaf insert, and china cabinet on server) that she *just* listed yesterday on Craigslist Boston, I took one look at the photos and agreed – this Heywood Wakefield Dining Room is in perfect condition. And who knows, perhaps someone out there reading has dreamt of owning a set like this? If that person is you, this is your lucky day because this set has been in her family since it was made in 1949 so it’s quite a special find.

Although the buffet shown below isn’t listed, she is willing to let it go to the right owner along with the dining set, so if you’re interested, please let her know.

Here’s the Craigslist ad so you can read more about it and contact her directly.

Thanks Syrene for the tip!

Inspiration via Amazing Morocco

While researching for an HGTV piece I’m working on, I came across the gorgeous interiors galleries at Amazing Morocco showcasing some fantastic rooms. Amazing Morocco was founded by two UK-based couples with a passion for this enchanting land that quickly became a business of building and selling villas there. I know you’ll love looking at some of them, so here’s the link and a mini preview of the beauty that awaits you…
