How about a little spring decorating, dining-room-style today?
Our dining room is such a small and simple space, I don’t like to add too much or it starts to feel a bit claustrophobic. I like small spaces that are filled just enough to be cozy, but not cluttered. It’s a fine line I find myself crossing just about every time I’m changing things up from season to season, and as soon as I do, I start taking away a little from here and a little from there and suddenly it all just feels right.
Didn’t Coco Chanel say something about always removing one accessory before going out the door…or taking off the last thing you put on…? I think the same advice could be applied to decorating.
Just a little food for thought. 🙂
The little plants that are currently filling our farmhouse plate rack are still alive and well – I can even see the hint of a few flowers starting to blossom on a couple. Fingers crossed my good luck continues. A pair of neutral pillows on the bench adds a subtle contrast to all the white.
I stacked a chippy vase on top of a wood slice and filled it with pretty stems for the center of the table. I love how they fill up the space, but don’t overwhelm.
An additional pop of green in a white pitcher for the shelves
And how about this beautiful wicker demijohn? It’s a new treasure – I’ve wanted one of these forever.
I love the texture and raw beauty of these bottles. The simple tag with the handwritten scrawl is what sold me on this one. I have no idea what it says, and I don’t really care either. 😉
Filled with cotton stems for a pop of white, and flanked by an old dough bowl filled with mossy balls for a pop of green – simple decorating for sure.
Simple, but still fresh and inviting and so ready for spring.
Hope your week is off to a great start!
