Our 2014 Dining and Sitting Rooms ...

One week away from Christmas ... wow!  Where has this season gone?  Before the holiday is over, I wanted to share a little more of our seasonal home.

I haven't shown you our new dining room yet since we moved in a few months ago.  It's very similar in layout to our old dining room ... 


In "this" dining room, we decided to go a tad bit darker on the walls and had it painted Sherwin Williams' "Perfect Greige."  We love the color and how well the white shelves and pieces pop against it!  We plan on adding shadowbox molding in the New Year.


Thankfully our fragile antique sideboard didn't get "injured" in the move!  


I placed the big brother of the reindeer on our great room mantel in here ...


and kept it simple with just a few mercury pieces.


I brought our mirrored chest (that used to be in the bedroom in our old house) in here and, instead of decorating a full-sized tree, we went with a smaller 4ft instead ...


and dressed it in ornaments mainly silver and gold:


Our silver and white dinnerware is from Home Goods: 


I brought out our mirror again this year and used it as the base for our centerpiece.


Love the afternoon sunlight streaming in ...


Now, let's walk on over to the sitting room:


Since this room was already done in a brown, blue and cream palette, I kept the tree in the same theme, but added pops of gold and silver, as well:


I kept our bookcase pretty simple by adding just a hint of holiday greenery and embellishments:


A few more splashes of the season made their way to this side, as well:




Next year, I just might have to make this more of a "coastal" tree!





Cute, reindeer pillows from Hobby Lobby:




Another snap of the afternoon sun ...


Time to go wrap a few presents!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

:) IN a word Becca... beautiful. I luv the blue with brown tree in the sitting room. I always look forward to your installments! Been a BUSY day looking after Baby Winston, he's almost 4 months old and an energetic little bundle. I have had your poet pulled up on my tablet waiting to be able to savor it with my coffee!!!

Beautiful, Becca! I love that wall color in your dining room. I'm going to have to remember that as I test out colors for our master bedroom. You've got such gorgeous pieces out and I'm sure your new home feels very cozy and festive!

NanaDiana said...

Once again you have BECCAFIED everything beautifully! I just love it. You do such a nice job. I really like the Hollywood chest in your dining room. It adds a touch of sweet glam in there.

Love the colors on your big tree-those are the colors I am leaning towards in my home this year, too. xo Diana

What a gorgeous, gorgeous tree! Love your choice of colors!!

Andrea said...

You know there always has to be a "Where did you get that" question, so I have to know about your curtains. I'm in desperate need of curtains, and I love both sets of yours!

Susan said...

I LOVE your tree and the reindeer pillow!! You have such a wonderful style! May I ask where you found the crystal drop trees on your dining table? Thanks!

Your new home looks so pretty dressed in so much white, silver and gold for Christmas! That was a great idea to use shelving to display white dishes in your dining room. I also love how you furnished your sitting room too. Hope you had a great Christmas and made some good memories in your new home.

Rob and Michele said...

Just stunning as always. I wish I had your touch. I love all of your decorating, but especially the brown and blue tree. I have wanted one for a couple of years. Could you please tell me where you found your dining room curtains?

Jan @ Jan's Place said...

Hi Becca, everything looks so beautiful! You put alot into decorating your home for Christmas and it shows. Where have you been? Everything OK? Haven't seen a new post in a while...Take care

NanaDiana said...

I am late getting here, Becca, but it is beautiful and I suppose all dismantled now and put away for another year.

I tried to send you a thank you but it popped back to me that you are a NoReply.

Have a wonderful weekend with your family. xo Diana
