Happy Monday!....This weekend, I decided it was time to bring "Summertime" to my dining room, and what better way than with the addition of "WHITE". I simple love "white", especially in the warm weather months!...It is a color, ( yes, I do so think it's a true color!) that adds such a clean "crispness" to any room & at the same time is refreshingly "romantic"! I'll admit, I went a bit over the top!...but why not?..it's all white isn't it? For me when using neutrals like this, "more is more"!!! I stripped away all my late winter/spring decor, leaving one "constant", my collection of brown transferware. By adding my white ironstone "pitchers", a combination of floppy, white "roses", huge bunches of un-ruly white "lilacs", and pure white "pillars" the result is something I am quite happy with! A room that is definitely saying "hello" to summer, but in a very soft & classic way.
My "dining room"....all dressed for summer!...NOTE TO SELF: You are in desperate need of a antique chandelier, dripping with crystals!....SELF RESPONDING: Budget not large enough for such purchases!....be happy with what you have!!!.........Self agreeing!
