Our Refreshed Dining Room

Happy March !!

It's sunny and beautiful 70 degrees today here in South Carolina ... could Spring truly be on the horizon?

I'm continuing to add touches of the new season around our home, with our dining room being the latest "stop."

Because I love adding blue to my color palette in our other main rooms, I thought it'd be fun to add it to our dining room, as well, to mix with the yellow that I tend to keep bringing back in here:


Candlesticks that were once bronze, turned grey are now enjoying a layer of AS Duck Egg on the buffet!  I then took away bulky matching lamps and opted for a taller, skinnier lamp on one side ...


and, balanced it on the other side with a beautiful demi john filled with faux branches:


I spread the love of blue over to our shelves, as well ... these vibrant plates from TJ Maxx work easily with just about any other colors!


The tiny pops of "gold-ish" yellow in the plates work well with our "frenchy" yellow plates from Home Goods:


And, you know I'm a fan of "faux" because of my lack of a green thumb ... these "pretties" from Michael's help add a lovely touch of Spring to our table.


These jeweled napkin rings remind me of the big ol' jewelry I love to wear ... when I spotted them at Pier One, I knew that they'd be a fun addition to our table, as well!


Thanks so much for stopping by our refreshed dining room ...


Come back soon, as I'm sure bunnies and birds will be popping in, too!

So beautiful and fresh for Spring! I'm always excited to see one of your posts in my inbox. You put so much thought into every detail! I'm in Virginia Beach and we were enjoying 72 degrees yesterday and today it got down to 26 with continuous ice and snow since early afternoon. Hope it isn't headed your way. I'm really ready for Spring! XO

So, so pretty, Becca. I just adore the soft hues of yellow and blue that you used. Those plates from TJ Maxx are perfect for tying it all together.

Becca, this is so pretty. Love the dishes and the pop of bling on the napkins. Hoping spring is on its way to NJ. The house has made progress.

Becca, just loving your dining room - they are my colours at the moment and they look so good in your place - and the tulips looked so real that I was surprised you said they are faux :-)
