Dining Room

Today, my fabulous friend, Faith, and I did a little shopping.  While we were out and about in Birmingham, I came across a ton of things that I want to use in the dining room of our new house.  I think its important to stress that with a little creativity and time, you can find things that are inexpensive but come together to create a comfy, beautiful home. Here are some things that I love and am hoping to use in my new house, specifically, the dining room.

This lovely dining table and chairs, which I'm head over heels for, are from World Market:

And today I picked up this serving platter and bowl at HomeGoods for $20 total:

Here are the plates that I found from the Better Homes and Gardens Collection at Walmart.  The price of $35 dollars will get you 4 place settings that consist of dinner plate, salad plate, bowl, and mug. What a great deal!
This is the color that I am planning on painting the living room, dining room, kitchen, and hallway! I love the soothing color and I'm planning on using brown, taupe, and a little doses of brighter colors to accent with!

And lastly, here are some curtains, also from World Market, that I think would go perfectly with my color scheme!

I am hoping to create a calm and cozy dining room to entertain guest and eat yummy dinners at night with my husband to be! I am having an absolute blast brainstorming ideas and searching for inspiration at my favorite stores! I will keep ya'll posted as I have the opportunity to pick up pieces and see what happens! Remeber, all it takes are little touches like new dinner plates or dinner napkins to creat a new look on your dining room table and creative style doesn't have to be pricey! Ya'll have a great weekend!
