As you enter our home, the dining room is to the right:
A pot of aged music sits on the radiator:
I love this ornate side table I found many years ago at a thrift store:
Our mahogany buffet presides over one wall. It is quite a statement piece, and I sometimes struggle with toning down its' formality. But I do love its' lines and detailing...
Tarnished silver and brown pieces are displayed here for fall:
A sweet figure of our Blessed Mother with just the right touch of my favorite blue:
The corner by the buffet is also an area I struggle with. Ideally I'd like a tall white dresser or cabinet here for much-needed storage, but for now - this chair and shutter fill the space. The baskets hold our table linens:
This white cabinet has been with me for years, even in my previous condo, and I've always loved it for storage and display. The vignettes on these shelves are often changed out for each season, while the closed doors hide the childrens' art supplies.
Some recent ironstone finds have made their way to this shelf, holding my knitted acorns.
Hope you enjoyed this little fall dining room tour. I've just started the Creatively Made Home e-course, and am looking forward to getting terrific ideas on decorating - especially with challenges like this room.
The course started this week, and so far I'm loving everything it has to offer!
