I love the cottage look and almost a decade ago I had a light and bright combination dining /hearth room that featured blue and white. These are pictures from that room..during the Christmas season all I had to do was add a pop of red to give it the holiday look. I get nostalgic about this room because I miss all the wonderful memories of watching movies and family meals we enjoyed there when my three sons were still living at home. We still live in the same home, but I have totally redecorated this room with a darker color scheme and the dining area is no longer a part of the family room.... but that's for a later post. Hope you enjoy one of my favorite rooms.
