The grey in your dining room works beautifully. Gorgeous room. I agree, you can make anything your own.


You've done a fun mix. I agree....you just have to make things your own. Some homes bring the desire to a more heightened level than others. My sweet husband also put up wainscotting in our dining room and I love it. Making a house a home brings great happiness. I love being in my home everyday and love it with all my heart.


looks beautiful. I can't wait to see it done.


that is a beautiful color on the walls. we painted a darker blue over new white wall when we were first married. i was working and my husband did it. when i got home he said "i hope this is what you wanted" in a not very happy voice. i think it killed him to paint over the white. that was about 4 colors ago. can't wait to see what the waincotting does to the room. thanks for sharing. it's a beautiful space.

i love your white ironstone and your dough bowl--those are both things i collect!
it is a wonderfully simple and clean room.
love it.


The painting is absolutely gorgeous. What a sweet hubby!


Gorgeous dining room, gorgeous. I love the paint color on the walls too..very elegant and it looks cozy at the same time. It is all the little touches that make a house a home...and yours! Have a wonderful weekend!


I would follow you to the Barn forever. Love the look of that place.

Everything is lovely. You can do great things. That painting is gorgeous.


Me too! Every where we have lived I made it a home for us! the best advice I give everyone don't wait for the dream home make every home the place for dreams.


what an absolutely gorgeous space!!!
i love the colors & juxtaposition you have created
i love the primitive dough bowl with the wheat!

i am drooling over your chandelier!!!!


I most certainly don't live in my dream home. But we're making it ours and I'm very comfortable here. I think that no matter where you live if you surround yourself with the things you love you can start to make it feel like your dream home!

Lovely chandelier!


Oh my, that chandelier is GORGEOUS! You have a great style and as for the color on the walls, Perfect. Have a great weekend!


love your last line, jeanne! and you don't have to have "the best" to make it truly beautiful, meaningful, and homey. i love that dinning room color, too!!


Wow! That is a beautiful room. Until I started actually reading your post, I thought the photos were from a magazine. I love the painting.

The Beautiful Life

LOVE THIS!! I have what looks like the very same shade of charcoal-y grey in TWO rooms here -- my daughter's room and in our media room off my office in our "carriage house".
Like you, once its up on the walls, covering the entire area, I just love it. I have not yet grown tired of it and it looks especially great with vintage-y decor with wood tones and a touch of "industrial metals" added in. Your dining room is PERFECT! Pottery Barn should take their inspriation from it! :)


Beautiful Post! The Painting is just Gorgeous. Have a Wonderful Weekend, Jamie

What a great post! You are absolutely right. A home is what you make it, whether it is tiny or big, your perfect vision or not. It is all in the details that you add that make it a reflection of you. I love decorating and can not wait to move and put my stamp on a new place. I will remeber to look for the possibilities and not just for "perfect".


What a wonderful room!!! I love the wall color. Beautiful!

When I moved into my home 7 years ago, every single wall was white. It has taken a while, but now everything is painted. It feels so much more cozy and mine now.

I love that chandelier! So pretty!
