Dining Room to Living Room

I decided to swap my dining and living room areas this past weekend. I am loving the change. I get a better view of the creek and the woods in my back-yard now, AND I love cooking in the kitchen and being able to see my daughter playing around the coffee table. I also love that I can see the television from the kitchen as well. Now I get to watch The Young and the Restless while I cook dinner!!!

This is a view of the entire dining area. This is what you see when you walk into the house. I added the quilt yesterday. It was given to me by a very dear friend.

This is the buffet in my foyer.

This is a table in the new dining area.

More Spring flowers in a Southern Living door bucket.

This is the china cabinet that I had painted to match my kitchen cabinets. I am not thrilled with the flowers on top of it. I had pine and berries and pine cones on top of it for Winter, but I'm ready for Spring. I'm thinking that I may need to use tulips. ??

This is a picture of the mantle over my stove. I took my winter decor down, and decided to display two topiaries and a couple of Southern Living lanterns. The plate came from The Columbia in St. Augustine. I love this plate. It is from Spain.

This is the view of the new living room, from the dining area. The photo isn't the best, but it is so cozy. I didn't think I decorated very "country" but now that I look at these pictures...

This is a better picture of the quilt. I stacked my Fitz and Floyd plates on top of my Southern Living cake plate. The antique milk crate came from an estate sale at Destrehan Plantation in Louisiana.

Thanks for stopping by!
