Good morning blog friends!
Well now that Easter is over and we are still having winter like temperatures here in Southern Ontario (I seriously don't ever remember bitching so much about the weather ever and as a dental hygienist seeing 10-14 people a day it gets a lot of lip), I have brought our dining room into spring mode sans rabbits.
I love taking photos in this room, as I really enjoy all of the angles and we also spend a lot of time in this room eating, talking, drinking sometimes singing and the like.
I notice that it is easy to be swayed by all of the styles we see out there in magazine land, Pinterest and the like. I am finding that I am drawn to certain styles and even when I try something different, I tire of it easily. My vintage eclectic farmhouse global style does not mesh with the sometimes rachel ashwell shabby chic pretty I occasionally try to add on our main floor. It ends up looking too precious against our homes background. Something to be said for knowing your own design mind and finding your OWN design voice I suppose.
Here's what our room looks like right now for the time being. I am enjoying the neutrals a lot more lately and letting certain statement pieces take pride of place ( ie in this room the buffet and ironstone collection)
To the photos......
the fabric for the runner i had shipped from europe and the rest of it will be making pillows for our outdoor room. it makes a relaxed runner that doesn't get in the way of eating for right now and makes cleanup quicker. i also scooped up a lovely white begonia in a walk through a local nursery sighing at the plants that can't come home with me yet.
the seagrass baskets on the doors are from #target and give the room a bit more of a relaxed spring/summer vibe.
it has been said many a time. collections make more of an impact when put together. none of these ironstone pitchers are new to us but they were scattered throughout our home. i revamped the buffet top and grouped them all together and love the impact.

and this seasons fabric offerings from left to right: charcoal grey and white cotton ticking, antique hemp sheet, sanderson angel ferns in charcoal colourway
Thanks for joining me today
Make it a great one,
