2013 Tour - Nordic Christmas Dining Room

Hello fellow merry makers!  Thanks for visiting our living room in my previous post.  The tour continues in our simple white and green dining room, with touches of grey/silver sparkle....


I kept the color scheme simple in here.  And for details,  I went nuts over grey/blue seam binding this year.  It's used everywhere in this room!   Welcome....

A friendly reindeer greets you from the table:

At the window is a simple green tree with candles in vintage clips and my handmade book wreath as its' star:
(I will not light these - too risky!)

Two shutters showcase glittered stars..

Another view from the kitchen:

I love how the buffet looks with silver candle holders and greenery:



The mirror reflects our corner cabinet.  I decided to warm up the cabinet this year with vintage books and a painted 'White Christmas' sign made from reclaimed wood:





Pretty ornaments rest on the white chair in the front of the room:


I couldn't resist making some cones with touches of grey after seeing some in the November issue of Jeanne D'Arc Living magazine:

Our Advent candles get lit each Sunday evening:



In the back of the room, a white bookshelf gets the Christmas treatment:









The table is set with simple greenery and stars...







Ornaments sparkle overhead...

Hope you enjoyed the tour.  Cheers to a very merry Christmas!

I love how you decorated for Christmas. So much goodness there and how fun are the dollar store glittered reindeer? I picked some up last year and love them! And so looking forward to receiving your lovely ornaments. I didn't get myself anything for Xmas (I shop for all of us) so this will be my present!

As always there is so much to enjoy and drool over when you decorate a room. You've outdone yourself this year. I adore the deer, the glitter houses, the sparkle. You have surround the room with so many wonderful displays I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite.
