“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Warm greetings dear friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday weekend. I must say I love having an extra week after turkey day to get my house ready for Christmas, I certainly needed it this year!
Many of you have been asking about my dining room and when would I be sharing it. Butch and I painted the walls, ceiling, and trim in July and I absolutely love the new color. As you all know, I had very dramatic red walls that I still loved. I also had yards and yards of silk window coverings. Since I am not one to go with trends, I am more traditional, I have always kept my home in a design that I love. I only changed because the upkeep of the silk was getting hard to maintain.
The plan was new paint, window treatments, dining table, and chairs.
The walls were painted Palladian Blue by Benjamin Moore, a soft color that I have always loved. Instead of elaborate window coverings, I have simple pleated linen panels on my double front window and pleated toppers on my bay window, with no trims. I haven’t found my perfect table and chairs so there is no change yet. Years ago this would have stressed me not to have finished a room in a timely manner, but I didn’t even let it bother me.
Christmas tablescapes certainly look different in a soft blue room, I will be sharing more on Thursday. Now join me in the dining room for blue & white with tartan!
I have loved this blue and white Queen’s Seasons Greetings Blue dinnerware ever since I discovered the six place settings several years ago at Tuesday Morning!
