Fall Family Living / Dining Room Tour.......and Shutter Project


I've shared  area's of the Family Living / Dining room over the last few weeks,  but not the entire room at one time so I thought you guys might enjoy a tour of where the family spends most of our time 

I also want to show you what I'm calling the shutter project.    I haven't decided if I like the pink shutters,   the white shutters,  or no shutters over the shelves under the pass thru between the kitchen and family living / dining room.   Let me know what you think with a comment....

How We Made a Temporary Wall in our Home

Our home  has a very open floor plan that sometimes can be a real problem      There is a large opening between the formal dining room and the family room and the opening just happens to be on the only place in the family room that I have to put a sofa on.

Fall Enchanted Forrest on the Buffet

Welcome to my Formal Dining Room 

I share pictures of  the dining area in the family room fairly often because I change the decor in there all the time....seasons and holidays.  for sure.    But I seldom share the formal dining room because the decor in there doesn't change very often.

Brass adds Warmth to my Bright White Kitchen for Fall

I've had a white kitchen for over 15 years and never grown tired of it....probably never will!    Actually... I've had a white kitchen more like 25  years because the home we had before this one also had a bright white kitchen.

Roosters, a Fall Vignette and Potted Mums in my Fall Kitchen

I began my fall decorating in the kitchen by getting out the beautiful  Roosters that my sweet daughter in law gave me      She was giving her kitchen a new look and asked if I would like to have them....and of course I said yes!

Styling an Antique Wooden Dough Bowl For Fall

My antique wooden dough bowl means so much to me belonged to my Mother.       Very few pieces of my furniture can accommodate such a large bowl.    My formal dining room table is big enough for it and there is just enough space in the pass thru between the kitchen and the family dining room for it to fit.

I love to have white furniture and white walls in our home.    Not only does all the white make our home bright and cheerful,   the neutral background makes it so easy to add any color for any season or holiday
