Christmas Dining Room Reveal


This past week everything came together in my dining room. I finished covering my new-to-me chairs (tutorial coming soon), the rug I ordered arrived and I completed my Christmas decorating! I am thrilled with the final outcome.

The chair fabric is from Calico Corners and is called Kalah blue. The rug is from Madeline Weinrib and is the one big splurge in this room. I choose the zig zag pattern to bring down the formality a notch and to add a more modern looking element into the space.


The buffet features a mixture of mercury glass, silver and clear glass. Once the mirror arrives it will take the place of the wreath.


You may recognize the two small topiaries as their normal home is on my family roon mantel. I did not have two matching containers so I simply wrapped the pots with burlap secured with raffia.


The table top also features a mixture of similar silver and white finishes. The sticks are from my yard and are housed in an upside down vintage column. Since I no longer can place my Christmas tree in this room, this table top display is a great substitute.


Hope you enjoyed this tour as much as I enjoyed creating it. I will be back soon with more holiday decorating.

It turned out great, but how on earth did you ever decide on a rug? I love your choice but there are so many possibilities! I've decided my project for tomorrow is to go check out those Weinrib rugs up close and personal. She's new to me and have a feeling I just fell in love....

Love what you did in the dining room. I love this room because you used stained and painted chairs (which I did, too), and the silver and white are gorgeous. Great idea on the topiaries in burlap...I've gotten some inspiration from your room! Linda

Hi Stacy-
I love the freshness of it all-the way the yellow, blue, and the green from the wreath pop against the white background. Tradition but with a modern twist - very nice.
My best- Diane

I'm always up for new decorating inspiration whether it be holiday or year round. I'm into primitive country decor more than anything else, but the natural elements would work great in combination with that! I love fresh greenery and silver and white. Thank you for the ideas.
