Last week I showed you my newly decorated Living Room, and today I'm showing you the Dining Room. Actually, when you enter my home, you walk into a Foyer that opens into this combination Living Room/Dining Room, but I can't figure out how to correctly photograph it, so I've divided it into two rooms.
This shows the front door/Foyer area. See how much blue you can spot. Don't forget to count the fabric on the window and pillow. Did you spot the inside of window arch?
The high ceiling is coffered, and I've chosen a dark paint to pull the eye upward. The ceiling and wall are the same color, just two shades paler. The arch is filled with the soft blue/gray color, taken from the drapes. The chairs are upholstered in the same soft tones.
You'll remember my Norman Rockwell collection and vintage plates from my former home. Notice the theme color is easily found.
I'm sure that many of you will remember the items in my china cabinet. My talented daughter-in-law arranged them into this display. (Remember, I told you I had tons of help.)
Here's a peek at next Monday's post, which will show the Family Room. Look out, BJ!
I love surprises. Did I manage to surprise you? Did you find some Blue?

Sally you have a lovely home and I think the Norman Rockwell display is perfect!
I sure love your home and ,yes, I found the blue surprises!
Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments.
Hi Sally, hooray, more photos of your beautiful home. Your dining room is sooo lovely. Yes, there is lots of blue in and on the china cabinet and on the table. I enlarged your pics so I can see the detail. Beautiful. I love the details on the ceiling and walls. Your colors are you. Conservative and calm. Great choices.
I am sooo happy to have the net again. Three days without my computer was not fun. I didn't realize what a big part of my life it is and that was an eye opener.
Have a great day.
I love the blue and beige, very beachy. Your daughter in law did a nice job, everything looks great! Mary
I'm a huge Norman Rockwell fan also, but I prefer his pencil sketches. I love how yours are displayed. Lovely, just lovely.
I found the blues and they just enough to add a hint color. You did a super job on your color combination's.
What beautiful spaces, the blue in the ceiling is so nice. I found blue in pieces on top of the hutch and on the table.
Ann-tin and sparkle
I saw blue in each of your photos, Sally. Your dining room is gracious and quite lovely, but then so are you :-). I can't wait to see the family room. Have a wonderful Blue Monday. Blessings...Mary
