My dining room is slooowwwwllllyyyyy beginning to take shape. This is one of those rooms that sadly, I haven’t paid nearly enough attention to which is ridiculous because it’s the first room you see when you walk in through the front door.
After breaking out the holiday decorations this past weekend I suddenly became inspired to begin working out the details and putting together a real design plan.
For the holiday design, I was inspired by this cute little picture I found in one of the Christmas boxes, which my youngest made in preschool when he was just 4.
and upon wanting to incorporate it along with some other family photos along my gallery shelves I began plundering other areas of my house such as my office, living room, etc. and put together a little grouping of my greatest works of art: my family
I recently picked up some really great art books filled with period maps and architectural drawing of London and Rome and have plans of framing several prints to be hung throughout the room. I also need to pick up some lovely Poinsettas to fill the mercury glass pots on the table. Easy enough!
For now though, this will have to do. I have to constantly remind myself that it doesn’t have to be perfect to be lovely and just like my soul, my home is a work in progress. For now though, I’m feeling good about the direction this ball is rolling.
Have a lovely day, friends!
