Classic Christmas Dining Room

I can’t tell ya’ll how much I love my dining room with its soothing neutrals and dark woods.    It has really been a privilege to decorate it this year for Christmas.   I found that less really is more in such a calming environment.

Mahogany chest next to the window.    Like my “custom” drapes?   You can read about those here.      I picked up the curly iron candlestick at a yard sale for $1.00 when we were in Decatur, Alabama.

This sweet little pitcher is from my uncle’s home.    He was a fabulous collector of china.

View of my dining room from the kitchen door.    I lit the candles just for you!

Love, love, love this tray.    I sprayed it with Almond satin.    It is the tray that matches the coffee and tea set a few pictures down.    Those are painted with Heirloom White but I didn’t have any on hand so I used the Almond….almost a perfect match.

Can you spy what’s different in this picture from some above?    I took this picture before I put the glass candlesticks on the white tray using the Heirloom White coffee/tea set in place of the tureen with white ornaments.      When I decided to use the candlesticks, I moved the tureen back to on the sideboard the put the coffee/tea set in the kitchen (you’ll see that in another post).

The pair of deer above I picked up last year at Walgreen’s for around $10.00.

My favorite piece in the dining room is this large tureen.    I love everything about it…..its size, its color, those darling handles…..

I’m joining the party at Rhoda’s so check out all the Christmas inspiration there.

I’ll be posting pictures of my kitchen in a day or two.    Still tweaking in there!

I love all the soothing white. Its hard for me to do that, since I have mostly red and gold things. I think I might have to work on getting some though. Beautiful. Blessings, Debbie

Judy, I haven't chatted in a while, but I still love your blog and your decorating! Was the tray you painted a silver? I have been picking up old silver trays in efforts to get them restored... some I have and some I haven't. That would be a great idea to paint the ones that are beyond help!

Judy, that is just beautiful! I love it. You are so talented my sweet friend!
