New look in the dining room

A few weeks ago I was able to get my dining room clean up and redecorated.  After Christmas I had just been using this area as a catch all room.  My dining room is small and doesn't get much light so some of the pictures turned out a little dark.   I thought that I would decorated with lighter colors for the summer.  I love the soft cream and yellows of the flowers so they were my inspiration.

Just a simple tablescape until Fall.

I have French Country and Tuscan mixed in my dining room.  The bottom of the buffet has more Tuscan decor.  I can't get a good picture of it as the table is in the way.  My dining room is pretty small.  In order for me to take pictures I have to stand outside the patio door.

I love my wine barrel cabinet.  It is made to hold wine bottles.

Here is the full view of my dining room from the foyer.  I still need to change out the cornice board and add some panels. I just haven't found the right material yet.
