Keeping it simple…winter whites with a few touches of aqua.
Our kitchen opens up into the dining room, as we have no formal dining room in our home.
I often use blues in various tones as an accent and to add a tiny pop of color to this mostly white home.
Finally a home for this pair of antique French sconces that I recently acquired. I still need to wire them to U.S. standards, but testing first to see if I like the way that they look flanking the mirror. I think that I do!
The dining room opens up to the pool area, so another excuse to accent with aqua. It brings the outside in.
I covered the table with a ruffled tablecloth from my stash of “shop leftovers”. Thinking of perhaps painting the rustic pine top with a whitewash…just not sure yet.
Our pool sees little use. No, actually that’s not true~it sees NO use now that the children are grown. It’s pretty easy to maintain though, and we do gather around it for entertaining.
Some of the things that I love to collect…antique wine goblets, French transferware, ironstone.
One of the challenges of this dining room is that there really is no space for a china cabinet, so it forces me to be creative in display and storage. I stacked a couple of old white chippy paint milking stools up to give some height.
And used some of my old English ironstone pitchers with dried cream and pale flowers.
