~adding spring touches in the dining room~

My house is pretty neutral as you know.
BUT, I do love color, especially the color green.
It's so versatile and screams spring to me.
I've had my eyes on these dishes forever now, and finally got them.
Oh, I also got these in green, so fun!
Love them!
So, new dishes prompted a few other green things in the dining room.

~Take a look~


 I got this rug which had me change the direction my table is going.
 I added 2 of these chairs to the mix which really brighten things up!
 Fresh freesia~yum!


 Candle holders are from Home Goods, and the runner from Dreamy Whites.

 A shot of the whole room looking from the living room in.
 And, standing at the french doors looking in, you can see the living room,
 dining room, going into the kitchen.
 It's just a few things, but it makes me so happy every time I walk by and see the color!
 Oh, and I made this for dinner last night to go in those green bowls!
{I used all low sodium ingredients}
Sooo easy!
Happy Spring!
xoxo

Very pretty! Please let me know how the rug is as far as cleaning. I've been hesitant to purchase a jute-type rug like this because I'm afraid of how to keep it clean. Do you vacuum? What about spills?

*sigh* Will you please come to California and redecorate my house for me? It's needs the Melaine touch. :)

Your home is beautiful , you have done a great job with the green accents. I know that ' happy ' feeling you have when you walk by. I think we should more often do little changes that we notice as we go on with a daily tasks. I have made a few changes here & there lately & as I rush past on my busy days it makes me stop, if just for a moment. Literally like stopping & smelling the roses.......

So beautiful and open and bright, no matter how I figure, I would have to tear my house down and rebuild to get that such a wonderful space! You have quite the touch, beautiful!
