Because this room is smallish, it's hard to get good photos, so I end up moving chairs around and working on an angle, just to get some distance. I like my Dining Room furniture so much better here at the new house. (I continuously had a battle with myself and my desire to paint it all out in a white or greige) I think it may be the color of the walls here and the height of the ceiling. Even though I have less space it's visually more pleasing than before.
I found my antique Triptych mirror and just leaned it up against the wall. It looks a little busy, so the jury is still out on that one. I moved my little Porcelain Girl from the table and it balances out the cloche on the other side of the large ironstone tureen and platter.
I haven't changed out the cloche since Spring,
so I'm looking forward to doing something with it for Fall.
I've had my Market Basket in here for a bit,
it usually has some kind of dried grasses or branches,
but there again, I'll do it up for Fall.
Sorry, this reflection makes it all look really cluttered.
You all remember this post where I had an epiphany on table runners? I've just been buying fabric yardage and then tucking in the extra on the chairs at each end. I hate to sew, and this is the lazy gal's version of a table runner. This way if I want to use it for pillows later I can. Anyhoo, that's my story and I'm sticking with it.
I love this wonderful red/coral color in the background of the fabric. It's Waverly, and I have kitchen curtains in the Brown background fabric. This time of year, as Summer is winding down, I love to bring out the deeper, richer colors to accessorize with. It's an easy transition into Early Fall.
My white geraniums will probably stay here in the windowbox for a bit,
then I'll put darker Hydrangeas in, when it's closer to Fall.
Once August hits I start getting excited planning
out what I want to do for Fall decorating.
My favorite time of the year...
I have a few boxes in the basement calling my name.
Have big plans this weekend?
