The new paint is called Creamy by Sherwin Williams. I wanted something light and very neutral....mission accomplished!
We won't even mention the fact that I need a fern on the antique plant stand in the corner, I killed the one from last year.
See that little oil painting just above the table now serving as a bar car? It is a darling little painting, everyone oohhs and ahhs over it....ya'll it was seriously only $1. Yep you read that right.....a buck! It was at a junk store in a pile of paintings, I should have gotten more!
The above are gorgeous watercolors that are very old, yet again a junk store find.
The paint is such a pretty color but I've had to work hard to make it not look stark, finding the right pieces have been a challenge!
This past weekend, before the weather came swooping in I made a quick trip to one of my fav antique stores. The bird prints were just waiting right there for me! They work very well with the gold sconce. The plates around the print are Butler's Pantry by Lenox.
The tiered server is one of my all time fav pieces I've styled here at Positively Southern. When I was a little girl my Mother let me play house with her Blue Willow wedding dishes. Mother never EVER liked them, they were a gift which is meant to say she didn't select them. Ya'll I played in the dirt with those dishes!!! Most were lost over time and the rest Sister and I divided them as she loves them as well. All of the pieces on the server were collected over many years.
Should I ever find curtains to put in the dining room just know these are coming down and being relocated. Having custom window treatments are not in the budget (remember we have a kid in college)so for now I just suffer with these! They came from Tuesday Morning and they are great curtains they just don't really work in the dining room now. Can I take this moment to say how much I loathe curtains with a grommet?! That is all I see anymore and it is frustrating!
Cody approves of the new rug! Did you see it on the blog yesterday? In case you missed it take a look here.
The lighting in the dining room makes it impossible to get a really good, true photo of how the paint color looks in here. It is a warm shade of cream but in most of the shots it looks white. The vibrant colors in the rug warm the space of visually.
