Fine Dining (Room)

Hi, everybody!  Yesterday I shared this post as a guest host on Knick of Time.  In case you missed it, I'm continuing the tour of my home and we have reached my dining room, which is off the hall.
This room is to the right as soon as you walk in the front door.  
(The other rooms that I’ve posted so far are to the left.)
More seltzer bottles! (Do you sense an addiction here?) 
The wood floor was painted green when we moved in and we left it.  
We had the walls painted a soft green to co-ordinate. 
You can see my love of typography, again!  
I got the old menu cards at an antique store…I thought they were so fun!
I have a mixed assortment of chairs around the farm table.  The cabinet in the corner is the one that my dad made for me and I have it filled with my ironstone collection.
I found the buffet at a flea market for a steal - it has great storage.
I have all my small, white pitchers/creamers lining the windowsill above the buffet.
I'll save the rest of my dining room for the next time!
I wish everyone a great day!
I'm linking to these great parties:


  1. I love all the rooms in your house so far! I'm seriously jealous over that sideboard, though. It is on my list to find!


  2. You have so many fun collections in your space. Love the menu cards!

  3. I love your little collections!

  4. You have some wonderful collections and vintage finds in your dining room. It's always fun to see what others do with their vintage goodies. LOVE your terrific style.

  5. Your home is beautiful!I love it all!!!

  6. I love decorating with collections! Very fun and unique!

  7. I can't stand it! I LOVE this room!!! I wish I could have all of those things out in our house. We have 3 under 3, so breakables within little hands' reach is a no-no around here. You did a fantastic job! Green, black, white with a little wood thrown in is my absolute favorite color palette. You nailed it. Thank you for linking up at The Ironstone Nest! XO Laura

  8. I could live here forever! So calming! Love the vignettes! Came over from Rustic Restoration.

  22. Susan, This is such a beautiful room and you have the best collections. Love the seltzer bottles and the cute wire basket. Thanks for sharing your pretty dining room at the Open House Party.

  23. Love that. So many great items. I really like the buffet and the wire baskets. You are so good at putting everything together! Beautiful!

  24. So loving your dinning room as well as your other rooms shared. I also really like your sense of type! I love the buffet and just sold one at my booth. I guess you do like seltzer bottles, because they are cool!!! So glad you shared your creative inspiration with Sunday's Best!

  25. Your dining room is wonderful, love all the eclectic touches; that amazing white buffet and that great column! perfect mismatched chairs!!

  26. Hi Susan, you know girl I love everything about your home! The pillar makes me swoon,(I kind of have a pillar fetish). So much so that last year on my b-day hubby had my SIL make me a pillar cake. Yeah, my SIL makes cakes. Not for a living, but just for fun. You have so many unusual things that I adore. The seltzer bottles and resturant menu cards are fabulous. I could feature you every week, but I guess I should give someone else a chance. lol! I have been out of town so I am slow at visiting. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

  27. I love the comfortable, country feel to your kitchen. I believe my friend has the very same buffet in her kitchen. I'll have to check pictures! Beautiful room! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

  28. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful dining room on Simple & Sweet Fridays. Love how you designed it!
