Going Colonial in the Dining Room and a Trip to Williamsburg Virginia.

Well the dining room is really coming along. In looking at the choices I have made in both color for the room and print for my drapes...I've begun to notice that the room is taking on a bit of a colonial vibe.

As you know the color I chose for the walls above the chair rail is called Boothbay Gray, and now that it is actually on the walls, to me anyway, it is very reminiscent of a Williamsburg blue.

Look at the below pic of a yes "gray" wall in a colonial style living room. Love it!

 The furniture in our dining room is shaker style in a cherry wood and it really pops against the new paint color, making much more of a statement in the room.  The whole space seems to want to take me in a more minimalist direction, very much like the decor of the colonial period. And what timing my new room has as we are actually this week traveling down to colonial Williamsburg Virginia for a few days. Can you imagine the inspiration I will find there???

Loving those black and white buffalo check drapes...they look hauntingly familiar like in my...mmmmm...let's say kitchen !

I have never been to this part of Virginia so I am really looking forward to visiting there, and of course I will be sharing Williamsburg and its lovely homes with all of you...how could I not?

Very exciting stuff, new room and a mini vacation all in the same week. I hope you will check back later this week to see Williamsburg and the full reveal of my newly redecorated dining room!

Have a great day!!!



  1. I love the black and white check bedroom and that grey you picked. I just painted my brothers kitchen and hallways in that grey with white trim and black doors..its classy

  2. Love the color in that first picture. I didn't do blue for years but it has grown on me again! Love Williamsburg and have not been there in 30 years!

  3. Love what you are doing - it looks great. You will love Williamsburg - the leaves should be spectacular. The homes will stunning and should give you lots of ideas. Have a great time.

  4. LOVE the little peek Barbara...can't wait for the full reveal!!

  5. I really love it!
    The color is perfect and I have almost that exact same print on my living room draperies.
    Have fun, lucky you!

  6. I also love the black and white check bedroom also, as well as in your kitchen. I really love what you are doing in your dinning room.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. They truly do brighten my day.
