If you have been following my progress on my dining room, you know it has been kind of slow going. I wanted to get it just right so I am taking my time. I ordered about eight swatches for the curtains and all the panels twice before getting the color right. I think you'll like it!

I also found an amazing pair of Italian candle sconces at a store downtown, they are just beautiful. 

 My plan is to be able to dine by candlelight!

 The blue curtains are perfect!

 It's hard to see because I cannot get a photo of both sconces in one shot, but they are on either side of the large bay window.

 The color of the little blue birds in the chinoiserie wallpaper are the exact color of the curtains.


  1. The curtains are so perfect. Love how it turned out. Can't wait to get invited to dinner in that beautiful room!

  2. Ooooohhh! The sconces and curtains both look fab! The next book club at your house is going to be even more gorgeous, which I didn't think possible.

  3. What a gorgeous room, and I love the sconces!! Thank you for visiting our blog so I could find yours...following ~
