Touches of red ...

I'm looking forward to getting all the trim up in the house and it will be so nice to finish out that doorway into the dining room ... patience. It's all about patience :).

I love the touches of red - don't you?!

This room looks so good with touches of RED!

Such a romantic room ...

Romantic. Love the light and the white on the bed ... ultra ohhh la la!

Ballard Designs black stripe fabric ...

I really like this fabric ... Maybe for the dining room chairs?!

The chairs ...

Back to finding the perfect fabric to recover the dining room chairs ... I like this script style looking stuff.

A shabby find ...

See the table (holding the art?)
love the shape and the handle ... can't wait to give it a makeover!
Love the legs on this piece ... I bumped into this earlier during the week and saw lots of potential! As for now - it holds the art in the dining room. :)

The red hutch. LOVE it!

It took me a while to finally decide on a color for that corner hutch ... I am so happy with the red.

My shabby, vintage window ...

Remember how I saved all the old windows from this house? Well, I finally did something with one of them! I love how it turned out ...

Shabby. Vintage. Simple.

I fell in love with this ... (and bought it)

I bumped into this art piece on Thursday and fell in love with it! It is now in the dining room... Thanks to this canvas print, I was inspired to take action and paint the dining room hutch red.
It looks fantastic together. Isn't it amazing how one thing/piece can MAKE a room?!

Before and after - the dining room hutch

Over there in the corner ... orange/brown.
The before hutch :) ...

Over in the corner - looking gorgeous in red!

Simply red...


love how the white plates look on red ...

Love it!
