French Cottage Garden Dining Room





I finished the new motif in my dining room.  I took my arched window out of my bedroom and worked off of that.  Of course the picture really doesn't  show the true beauty of this room with no sunlight for days now.
I have a southern exposure and when that sunshine decides to appear this room sparkles.


The shiplap wall along with my neutral woods looks pretty together.  I was going for a vintage garden theme.



I added my vintage garden hats to the shiplap wall.


Along the other side of the salvage window is the arched window box.



I love my arched salvage wood window.  I used this piece to start the French cottage garden look.





Just think of this room as bright and white with texture added from the light woods and garden hats.  I wanted the flowers to be mostly prairie style.


So there you have it.  Cottage garden dining room.  Ohhhhh sunshine please appear soon.  I have the worst time during these long winter months here in the midwest.  The snow and cold I can take it is the days upon days of no sun that is hard.

Maybe if the sun ever returns I will take new pics of this dining room to show how pretty it really is.  Unfortunately no sunshine in the forecast for quite some time.

Have a good rest of the weekend.
Hugs,
Kris

  1. Hi Kris,
    Your dining room looks lovely..........hopefully it will put a bit of spring into you sunshine less days. That dreary weather does get to anyone after a while. I agree
    easier to handle the cold than the dreariness. Love that you added the hats to your
    walls, they looks so cute, and really liked the whole wall motif. Beautiful as always.
    Hope this finds you doing well. Has Terry started his new job now? Hope he is
    loving it.
    blessings,
    Nellie

  15. gah, I can't sign in to my google acct today..
    I love these two rooms of sweet restful decor.
    I do not like grey days either, I turn on all of our lights, I have a few high intensity torch lights that make it feel like a sunny day.
    I love the beautiful frame with the arranged flowers.
    Today is a good day to find some old movie on tv.
    Last evening hubbs and I watched 1.5 hours of a 1933 version of Jamaica Inn, directed by Alfred Hitchcock. It is much better than the new version out now.
    Never heard of this film, but now I can imagine in the days of olden, sitting in a dark theater with a best friend or two watching this well done production
    Happy Sunday

  25. Kris, your dining room is stunning. Even without sunshine, the garden theme with the vintage hats is gorgeous. The arched window is a fabulous addition! It is all so beautiful!

  26. Nice to see a vision come through! Looks great and I know what you mean about the lack of sun! It came out for about an hour today which was pleasant but not long enough!

  27. LOVE the dining room, Kris. It really does have that cottage look that you love. I guess I never noticed the moulding around the light fixture before. Love it and it really adds a lot to the feel. I am glad you have a Southern exposure because at least you get the brightest light possible for these long, dreary winter days. I am bummed by them, too.
    And...LOVE the pillows on the couch/sectional. Just the perfect touch for Valentine's Day. xo Diana

  29. I just love the French Country look you've gone with for the dining room, such a delightful theme! I love the arched wooden window, you transformed it into a beautiful piece! We have had weeks of no sun here too. Sometimes early in the morning, and at dusk, we will get some light, but it does make January a long month. Hoping you get some sunshine soon!

  31. Kris, I think it looks so pretty even without sunlight but I know exactly what you mean. I really don't like winter, even here in California. We have had lots of rain this time around which is good and we really needed it, but that still doesn't make me like it. We still do have days of sunlight but not enough to flood the windows which is how I like it. Be brave, winter won't last forever but with global warming who knows?!..xxoJudy
