Show Us Your Life: Dining Room

This week the home tours at Kelly's Korner are continuing with the dining room. Y'all, if I thought my pictures last week were bad...I clearly hadn't tried to photograph my dining room yet. It is SO hard to get a good picture of it, no matter the time of day! But here's my best attempt. And these pictures make me realize how dusty my house really is. Ugh.

I LOVE the paint color of our dining room. It is done in Ralph Lauren Regent Metallics paint. All of the walls are a lighter green color, Torch, and one wall is striped with Torch and Candelabra, the darker green...thanks to my amazingly talented mother. :)

This is the view when you walk in our front door and look to the left.

Our table really doesn't go with the style of our house. It looked great in our place in Waco but our house now is a different style. Maybe one day we'll sell it and get something else, but honestly I bet we've used it a total of 5 times since living here, so I'm in no rush. I am still trying to find the perfect thing for the wall - I think this piece is too small. So I either need something with it, or something completely different. I also have been looking for a rug, and finally found one I like that I just ordered. Hoping it will warm the space up a bit.
This is on the right wall. The walkway leads to the butler's pantry, and then into the kitchen.
A shot of my lovely fall arrangement from Michael's, put together with help from my mother. :)
This is the view looking back into the dining room from the living room. There are french doors on that wall to the left, thus the insane glare.
And finally, I tried to take a picture looking in from the butler's pantry, but as you can didn't quite turn out.
Thanks for stopping by!
