Happy Sunday! It’s time to share some favorite things like a new series where I feature reader’s photos and share decorating tips. This one is about Ways To Warm Up A Dining Room. And there are cute wicker sconces at different price points and visiting San Francisco ideas! Cindy and Annie are sharing their Faves, too!
Ways To Warm Up A Dining Room, Visit SF, and More
Visit San Francisco
We are still on lock-down but some are predicting that it will free up soon. If you follow me on Instagram, you can see the sites of San Francisco while Chief and I are getting some exercise (usually in my stories).
Above is the Palace of Fine Arts and the beautiful home below has a view of it from across the street!
Check out this free interactive resource, San Francisco City Guide Magazine, to help you plan your trip (or your “staycation” in my case)!
Décor Pointers For Email Subscribers
In a recent survey, it was suggested that I have readers send in a photo of a decorating dilemma for some quick pointers. So recently I mentioned it to email subscribers. Several photos came in that I will be featuring. And today it’s about…
Ways To Warm Up A Dining Room – Medium Budget
This dining room was the first photo that landed in my inbox. Can you see the snow outside the window?
- Round or horizontal art on this wall fills the space better
- A mirror in a dining room is nice to reflect candlelight
- The curtains need to be thicker/wider
- A more updated chandelier…hung lower (32″ to 36″ from the tabletop) than the current one.
- I don’t always recommend rugs in dining rooms (food stains) but this one is in performance material and warms up space.
- Upholstered host chairs soften and break up the hard surfaces. When shopping, try to get host chairs that are at least as tall as the existing chairs.
More Affordable (using World Market and Target)
Speaking of different price points (many of you asked for content like this in the survey, too)…
Sconces With Wicker Shades At Different Price Points
These are cute and add texture to a room.
Ceramic Essential Oil Diffuser
Working in my office is much more pleasant with my new little ceramic oil diffuser! I bought the essential oil starter pack from Annie from Most Lovely Things. It seemed expensive at the time ($160) but you get a diffuser (it’s in my bedroom) and lots of YL precious oils that last a long time. And Annie is always sharing creative blends and uses for the essential oils. You can purchase the starter kit here (now $148.50)
