Have you ever felt like you were two different decorating people?
I love farmhouse. I love rustic and logs that look they just showed up from a hoe down and tiny wood slices and pumpkins that a farmer would show at the county fair.
But then there’s this other me.
The one that chases all the shiny things.
Like gold and sequins and sparkles and chargers that look like they just got home from Vegas.
This fall I couldn’t choose.
So my rustic self got together with my sparkly self and decorated a dining room.
I don’t know about you, but when I’m looking at how someone decorated a room…
….I want to see the whole room.
I want to orient myself so I can see the relationship between the dining room table and the other things in the space.
Maybe it’s random.
Maybe I’m the only one, but I can’t help it.
It’s like I’m all unsettled until I see a few walls.
Here’s the view of the dining room from the front entry.
If you keep going to the left, you’ll see this side of the room.
That piece in the background?
It’s actually an antique fabric bolt holder.
Here’s a close-up of the piece.
It came from an old store and it was used to hold rolls of fabric.
Now it just holds milk glass and pumpkins.
My sparkly self added those pumpkins.
Don’t you love that pattern and how it plays off the gold silverware?
And then my farmhouse self added a wood leaf.
I used log bases to stack the trees on.
And then added these velvet pumpkins.
They had me at the feathers.
There’s a wood forest of trees on the table.
They came from the fall party section at Michael’s in a kit with the cutest leaves you could write what you were thankful for on and hang them on the tree.
I got them for 30% off and I think they were under $10 then.
I almost spray painted them gold, but my farmhouse decorating self intervened.
I got these gold leaf plates at Hobby Lobby and the larger plates underneath from Michael’s.
The plates with the gold dots are actually plastic.
Can you believe it?
I got them for 30% off, too.
Are you a sparkly decorator?
Or are you a farmhouse decorator?
Or are you like me and you can’t make up your mind and you don’t really want to have to choose?
I get it.
Come sit by me. 🙂
PS I’m showing off the rest of the house tomorrow for a fall tour with a fun group of bloggers.
Hope you’ll stop back by.
