Updated Dining Room

Hello Ya'll....Hope everybody had an amazing weekend, and if you where in the path of Irene I hope today finds you and yours well.

As promised, I have some pictures of my updated dining room with the new chandelier, medallion and new hard wood floors.  I am so excited about this room, it is almost where I want it to be (for now, wink).

The new chandy, medallion and a peek at the new floor.  I feel like it's my birthday or something! I love the pretty  shadows that are being cast on the ceiling.  Yes, that is a fall arrangement on the table.  I decided with this broken leg to go ahead with some of my fall  things. Otherwise, I would be repacking the things I just unpacked.  Below is the close up on the fall basket I put together.  The faux leaves and pumpkins will be replaced will real in a couple of weeks.

Pretty shadows....sigh...

Another showing the shadows playing on the trey ceiling.

The new floor is Asian Hickory by Santa Fe in cinnamon.  It is hand carved 5" planks in a rich red with black.  I am loving that now the first floor is not chopped up by carpet in the formal rooms and the family room.  It really does make the area flow better and seems even larger.

The second picture really shows how rich the colors are.  The floor really goes well with my cherry dining room furniture and the cherry cabinets in the kitchen.  And it really pops with the newly painted island in black.

Well, if you are still with my - thanks! I am just loving the dining room and wanted to show you the new chandy and floors.  I will show you the rest of the room in a day or two.

Make it an amazing day!

Hi Toni!

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog. Thanks also for taking the time to leave such a sweet comment. I really appreciate it.

I love your blog and can't believe I haven't been over here until now. I look forward to reading lots more of your gorgeous posts!

I must say I love your floor boards. There is nothing like natural timber in the home is there?!

Best wishes,

Love you room. The tablea and ball claw legs are wonderful and the walls are such a warm color. Great arrangement on the table too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Oh, how beautiful! I really like your floors...they are such a beautiful warm tone...and they really do match your dining table perfectly! Love all the warm colors and the basket...I have been looking for a basket just like that for my dining table to do the same thing with fall decor! great minds think alike!

Thank you for stopping by my blog so that I could find yours. The nesting doll collection in my mudroom grew each time we went to Russia to adopt another child. We have 1 biological son and 3 from Russia (not all at the same time...I am not completely insane lol). I really was drawn to all of the Russian artwork we found there...amazing, bright colors.

I hope you have a wonderful day!
