This is in the dining room and as you can tell….I love red.
Where the entry was cream and white, this room is more dramatic.
My chandelier over the table, I did not have a electric box in the ceiling, so I have one from Lowes and it is plugged in behind the china cabinet. Ivy covers the cord, I really like it. I spray painted it gold and added the beading to the shades and tons of hanging crystals and beads. Before it was pink and white! I like it antique gold.
My centerpiece is a big sterling silver antique punch bowl I inherited from my MIL. I love it! It needs cleaned, but I kind of like the patina. I have a huge serving tray as well. When my girls get married I am set…lol…but dang I hope that is not for a long time!
A sort of tradition at Christmas is to have candy bowls scattered around. This year it worked out great, my aunt did the candy and we get to enjoy it.
I love this room at night. I have welcome lights in all the windows pretty much all winter, and the red walls just glow. It was a pretty big risk painting that room so dark, but honestly, I love it….and almost everyone comments about the colors.
More to come…..Brooke
