The white tulips my dear husband got me for Valentine's day brightened up the room even more:
I love the new look of the light gray lower wall, which you can see closer in the background of this next photo. The sculptured paste wall stencil now has a more subtle effect, but still gives dimension:
It looks especially calming behind these pretty china pieces:
These pink roses from Trader Joe's are still going strong:
The corner hutch got a cleaning-out and now displays all the blue and white pieces I've collected, as well as our wedding china. Here it is, with the arched window glass door closed & opened:
...and a reflection of the room in this vintage mirror:
This room is such a happy place to be, that I'm seriously considering turning it into a multi-purpose library/dining room. I am embarassed to admit that a gorgeous antique French daybed is being held captive in our dark basement. We never had any place to put it on our upper levels. It's been down there far too long, and needs to relish some daylight. Would it be crazy to line it up against a wall in here next to the dining table and use it as a reading area? Hmmmm...
I'll be sharing this bright room with White Wednesday, Feathered Nest Friday and Show and Tell Friday.
