Moving along........the dining room

This picture makes the room look longer than it actually is, but I like that you can see that both sides of the room are wonderful windows and French doors. Of course, I had to add some color - I just can't help myself. Local artist, Tom Proch, painted the bead board ceiling a sort of aged tobacco and toned down my wild Mexican blue doors and windows with the same smoky, "old" glaze.
If you look closely you can see that the rock work is laid in a different pattern here. The rocks are cut and laid in a more uniform manner. The rock work in the "first" part of the house is much more random.This room leads into the kitchen, where the stone walls continue in the same pattern. I love interior stone!


  1. WOW! Not commenting on all of the posts, but i feel the same about all of them... what a wonderful lovely home you've made!

    And Joni and Ben ROCK!

  2. ann! this is nikki - your house is gorgeous! and your pictures are beautiful...
    thanks for sharing your home!

  3. Thank you both for the kind words - I really appreciate it and hope you will come back!

  4. Hi, just came across your blog, I absolutely love, love the pictures, I have a question though, are the tables in the breakfast room and dining room family heirlooms or are they current purchased furniture, I have been smitten by the tables and chairs!!

  5. Thank you old world sunflower! The dining table we had custom made years ago when we lived in Dallas. It was five feet wide and ten feet long. I loved the size, but didn't like that we couldn't pass food across the table, so I just had it cut down to four feet wide.It is easier to use now. We really enjoy big holiday dinners or having friends sit around it for meals. The breakfast table is from Homestead, a store that really doesn't exist any more,here in Fredericksburg - I wish I could tell you where to find one like it, but I don't think I can.

    Thanks so much for your visit and kind words.
