Time For A Change
Happy New Year, everyone!! Today, I decided to make a few changes in the Dining Room. I wanted to add a little warmth and drama, so I tried something different. I had two curtain panels, but no rod to hang them on, so I got creative. I did, however, have two shelves. I took each curtain panel and I hot glued them to the inside of each shelf, and then hung them. Whala, instant warmth to the room.
I wanted to add some of those Tuscan colors I love so much, so the curtains panels came in handy. The panels are purely for decorative purposes only, and that's ok, because I have the shades for privacy.
I kept the table simple in appearance.
I changed the mantle from Christmas to everyday.
I love the ambiance that candles bring to the room.
I added a tray, a Fern arrangement, and some moss and wood balls.
Sorry, for the lightening...it was starting to get dark. ;)
I added a Red Rooster to an arrangement.
I like the Rooster, because the color matches the curtains.
I brought in some lamps that have black in them to match the black shelves that are housing my curtains.
I love our electric fireplace.
I'm addicted to candle sconces, are any of you? ;)
I used to have plate holders on either side of the window and I got tired of looking at them which prompted me to try something different. I was going for a cozier look, so I think I achieved it for now. ;)
I am hoping to get a Tuscan Dining Room set this year, fingers crossed! ;)
The main colors in this room are brown, beige, gold, brown, green, brick red, and yellow.
Thanks for stopping by!
Here's to a Happy and Healthy 2012!
