The Dining Room, Set for Spring


Spring has officially arrived, and not a minute too soon I might add. This winter has been quite ... well ... wintry. With the first day of spring comes the promise of warmer days and more hours of sunlight. Just what we need!

To celebrate the arrival of spring, I've put away the winter decorations in the dining room and brought out some fresh accents. A bowl of lemons (some real, some not), white candles and a natural fiber runner brighten up the table, while the dining chairs get their crisp, off-white cotton slip covers for the season. A new look for a new season!

Seen in the photo above, to the left, are a couple of interesting items we found at an antiques show: an old green glass wine jug from France, and on the windowsill, two vintage seltzer bottles from Argentina. The colors go perfectly with our wall color, which is Pennywise by Sherwin Williams. Here's a close-up of the seltzer bottles:

  4. Thank you all for your kind comments. The table and chairs are from Room & Board. The table is joined by wooden parts, not metal. There are two leaves that go on the ends and are held there by wooden bars that slide out from below. Very nicely made. I love Room & Board's furniture. Much of it is American made, as our chairs are.

  6. Oh my gosh, to have that built in china hutch. It is gorgeous. And I'll take your green glass demijohn any day. You space reads as warm, casual, comfortable. Not in the least stuffy. I can see sitting here for hours after dinner is over.

    1. Hi Courtney,
      The secretary is a piece my husband purchased locally years ago, before we were married. I don't know anything about it. I like the unique shape of the glass on the doors. Thanks for visiting My Little Bungalow!
