Not So Much A Dining Room....

Hello again dear friends...
Yes, it has been a bit since I posted!
Fall is a busy time with my girls and family.

Today I wanted to share my dining room.
It is right by the front door as you enter our home.
But I did not need a dining room....
So what did I do???
It's a pretty office/entry now.

 I am still using my library table as my desk.
But this is a new/used chair.
I will be painting the legs and the small cabinet soon.
Most likely a greige color.
I have started to add a bit of holiday into the house.
The plant here has some sparkle in battery lights.
I love these little lights.
The silver punchbowl is a treasure I've had for many years.
To the opposite side is my lovely antique chest.
I had it in the entry at the farmhouse with my grandma's table chandelier as well.
I have a very southern style in this room with antiques and silver pieces.
The silver tray is wonderful, I have big plans to use this when the girls get married some day.
 This is a battery Luminara candle, it looks real when it flickers.
 Birds and burlap roses, staples to my decorating...
 And glass crystals... I add them whenever I can.
 Not the best picture... the lighting in this house I am still adjusting for photos.
 I am looking for a rug for this room.
I am picky, wanting something neutral, but interesting.
And large... 8 by 10.  I will find one soon.
A peek at my desk top...
 And another little bird...
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you will follow along so we can stay in touch.
xxx...Brooke

I love your office. Everything looks lovely. I think I'll do some candles like yours. So, so pretty!

I'm just saying: said...

very pretty. I can't help but wonder, how long does it take to dust with all those cute displays? =) That's what holds me back on having lots of tchotchkes.

Brooke, it's so nice to hear from you again! I love the things you've decorated your office with. The little birds are so sweet and your grandmother's lamp---spectacular!

The burlap you use in various places is intriguing to me. I've never really tho't of using it for decor but I like it the way you've used it. Nice addition of texture.

Will look forward to your next post and seeing more of the new house!

So pretty! I'm in the process of turning a typically formal living room into a more casual dining room/library so we can actually use the space. Happy that some of the "rules" of traditional home decor are being broken! Visiting from Create Bake Grow & Gather party.

That's a beautiful way to use the space, Brooke. I have really been enjoying your journey.

We moved into our new house 5 months ago so I'm a little ahead of you but not much. It's definitely a process. :)

You will get a lot of use out of this room with the way it is set up. I love all of the details you have shown us.
