Delightful dinning rooms that make me happy:

White china and teacups against turquoise? Sold. I love the uncluttered look.

Peaceful and bright is for me.

I love me a painted floor.
Would you be gutsy enough to use this chandelier?

If I was building a house I really like the idea of an eat-in dinning room. A farmhouse table plus slipcovered chairs equals a happy Abby.
Chairs make all the difference; don't you want to spend a long time chatting at this table?
The hutch is a bit much for me, but those chairs and light fixture get me every time. I love this room.
Yes, this is not a dining room, but I couldn't get away from the fabric on the windows and the monogrammed chairs.
Now let's change gears.
After my Miami Mama agreed with the fabrics I chose yesterday, I moved forward with a mood board.
Here is a start at where we are going:
Just click on the board for a list of sources.
Finally, I just want to say thank you one more time for all of the comments and e-mails I received from this post! You all confirmed my agreement with this quote from A Gift Wrapped Life:
To some, blogging can be a huge waste of time, a sign our world is becoming one continuous loop of social media, one more way of distancing ourselves. I beg to differ, I have never felt more connected to a continuous thread of women who speak my language, who inspire me, who hear me and for that reason I smile to myself a lot these days.
