Good morning, sweet friends! I hope that the month of March finds you well and in good spirits. I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks, but we have had a lot going on. I have been wanting to show you the new wall color in the dining room, but we have had little sun. Yesterday, we had snow and the reflection from the outside made for the perfect light to take pictures.
If you remember, the wall color in this room was a dark green and was the original wall color. When we moved in, I decided to try to live with the darker wall color. However, as months passed, I found it was just too dark for my liking. Don’t get me wrong…I love color. It is just that we live in a heavily shaded neighborhood, and lighter colored walls allow for more light to reflect indoors, Below is how the room looked before with the darker walls.
After Christmas, I had plans to paint the dining room. I had a few colors in mind. However, my sweet blogging friend, Pam, at Everyday Living had just painted her dining room Palladian Blue by Benjamin Moore. When I saw her beautiful room, I knew that it was the perfect color for my dining room. If you don’t follow Pam, you should. She has the most beautiful home, gorgeous gardens, and loves to set a pretty table as much as I do. She is the epitome of southern grace and hospitality.
Before the holidays, I purchased new host and hostess chairs for the dining table,
I had coordinating pillows made for the two armchairs flanking the buffet and hutch,
For the dining table centerpiece, I recently found this footbath at a consignment shop. I had been looking for one for quite some time and was so happy to find this one, For now, I just placed a plant in it. However, I can easily take it out and put something different in it as the seasons change.
Flanking the footbath is another recent find, two antique Italian Tole Candelabras.
Thanks so much for stopping by, dear friends! If you are dreaming of spring as much as I am, you will want to stop back by tomorrow. I am joining my tablescaping friends to bring you our spring tables. Take care, and enjoy your day!!!
