Carrying on the theme of decorating with hydrangeas from the living room to the dining room was not a hard decision for me. I love dried hydrangeas and you will see them in my home year round. The fact that they are a fall favorite makes me happy that others love them as well.
The dining room is always hard for me to photograph but it is always a room with hydrangeas. The large vintage basket on top of the armoire is great for storing them and displaying them. That armoire was hand made for our newborn twenty five years ago. We lived in an older home that had no closet in the bedroom she was sleeping in. Now it’s great for storage.
Vintage mirror found at flea market reflects the large basket holding the hydrangeas on the armoire.
Oh and I forgot to introduce you to my white linen drapes. They have been in photos already published but I forgot to ever mention them. I searched for lined drapes from every place I could possible look. These white linen ones were the best choice for this room. Drapes are mandatory for me. I love the way they soften the window’s hard cold edges. They give privacy which is a must no matter where we live. Nothing like being able to pick your nose and know that no one is watching you!
They lighten the room nicely and are a neutral which I consider the wallpaper to be because it has every conceivable color in it. So I can use any color in here. And you know by now it’s always about the color!
On the opposite side of the table is this very vintage mirror that was found at a flea market in France. Can you believe it shipped over here and stayed in one piece? Just kidding, I bought it just a few miles away. Some of us have to be the peasants that don’t travel abroad! Borrowing from a traditional Easter look, my hydrangeas are the fluff/bedding for the petite velvet pumpkins that sit in a basket that was a Christmas gift many years ago from my late mother. It has faded with time and is now appropriate for any time of the year. This all sits inside of an urn I find many uses for.
The wallpaper’s colors are picked up by the fall hydrangeas as well as the pumpkins.
