I’m so glad you all enjoyed my Living Room source post last week! I know sometimes it’s gets a little boring seeing the same photos again, but I’m very excited to have everything sourced and neatly organized on my sidebar 😛 Remember I am a bit of a list freak! AND I promise I have some new home tour photos coming for you, with our spring tour this year. There haven’t been any dramatic changes, but it’s always nice to freshen things up a bit and share them with all of you!
So let’s talk for a minute about these beloved curtains in my dining room. Because other than our white slip-covered sofa from Ikea, these are the 2nd decor item that I get asked about the most! Second to my sofa, these are the longest standing decor item I’ve had in my house, and haven’t been replaced. I purchased the fabric by the yard from Pottery Barn about 8 years ago. I wish I bought more, it was on clearance, and at the time I liked it but I had no clue how much in love with it I would become. It’s the perfect shade of navy blue with gray undertones. It has a light tan and gray paisley print on it. I love them, I bought probably the last 5 yards they had, and it still amazes me that I’m not tired of them yet.
You walk into our dining room from our kitchen. There are half walls with white columns on each side separating the dining from the living room (which is the front of our house). The black sign above the columns that says “All Because Two People Fell In Love” I found at a boutique while visiting my inlaws. Our dining room has a very relaxed feeling. I’ve never been a fan of a formal dining room, but was a craving a space to entertain and be comfortable in. I didn’t want a room our kids wouldn’t feel welcome in. Since our dining room is right in the middle of our home, you have to pass through it to get to any other room in our house, it needed to feel like it belonged to the rest of our homes style and flow.
