Dining Room/Family Room Tour

Today, I want to share my dining area/family room. This is the side of the house that we spend the most time in. Join me as I take you on the tour.
Here is a view of our dining area from the kitchen.

Here is a view walking in from the front living room.

I placed a small table in the corner with a faux plant, our Ipod deck and fleur de lis plates.

Another view from the couch, I would really love to change out the light fixture, but I need to convince my husband of that one lol.

 I placed a scrunched up runner, an arrangement I made and two fleur de lis candlesticks with candles to the center of the table.

 Here is a view of my hutch. If you are new to my blog you can search to see what this hutch used to look like before I painted it black and added the iron to the doors.

 I placed a scrunched up runner along with greenery in a wine crate, a fleur de lis plaque and two finials.

For the inside I added my red chris madden dishes, wine bottles, decorative plates, finials and wine glasses.

 For the top I added three fleur de lis vases to the center, I put them on top of a book box to give it height. I also added finials and greenery.

Here is a view of our family room. I would love to get a new sectional, but this one works well with the kids still being little they are constantly spilling something!

Here are a couple different views of the couch area.

 For this wall I added two tuscan pictures with candle sconces on either side, a iron piece above, a metal shelf, roosters and a arrangement.

 I added this iron piece above our TV I think it frames it nicely.

 We have this ottoman for toys, I hung the fleur de lis iron peice above. I love fleur de lis can you tell? :)

I added two valances above this window along with a iron piece. I wanted to add panels but we have a doggy door that clips into the sliding glass door and it wouldn't have worked, so this will have to do.

 I added my leopard lamp with a tassel, three candle holders and this trunk which I store diapers in.

I hope you enjoyed my dining area/family room tour! I will be back soon with another decorating post. I have decided to start a cake/ party planning business called Tickle Your Cake Buds I would love for you to follow me there too! or like me on FB at 

Have a great weekend!!

Allyson, you always make your home so beautiful! I love your style. Your hutch looks gorgeous! We also kept out old sofa for years and years. I refused to get a new one when the kids were growing up and be suffering every day that they were going to stain it.You will get that light fixture! :)

I think you've done a lovely job, Allyson! Everything looks really homey and comfy. Good luck on your cake business. Did you have any trouble getting a Food Handler's License? My DIL stays super-busy just doing cakes and cupcakes for her neighborhood friends and her kindergartener's classmates. It can really be a fun business!
