I didnt participate in the home tour last week because I was just so crazy busy, so I'm combining them this week: dining room & kitchen! If you're just joining us, Kelly's Korner is hosting this home tour every Friday with a different room each week. You can view my other room tours by clicking on the link on the top left of my blog!
So when you enter our front door, immediately on the left you'll see our dining room!
The pictures on the right are from Kirkland's and I made the centerpiece from greenery & flowers I bought at Hobby Lobby.
I'm pretty sure if you've seen the other 2 room tours we've done so far & now this, you're probably wondering if I decorate in any other color than red! Haha! I promise I've got rooms in other colors! This room actually used to be done in navy blue when we moved here 2 1/2 years ago but I redecorated about a year ago. This furniture set came from Rooms To Go in Houston.
And just for fun, this is our china set in the cabinet. It's Noritake "Crestwood" in Platinum from Dillards.
And the doorway through the dining room leads straight to the pantry and our kitchen on the right.
The view of our kitchen when you enter through the dining room.
And the view entering our kitchen through the living room. (Again, I promise, I have more than red in our house! lol)
From this entrance, you see the breakfast table first. We just bought that wine bottle painting from Garden Ridge a few months ago. We eat most of our meals here & rarely use the dining room except when we host company. We love this table! It can be round as shown above....
.....or converted to square! We bought it just last year from Bel Furniture in Houston.
And continuing to the left of the kitchen.....we just installed the black dishwasher next to the fridge earlier this year. Much easier to keep clean than the stainless steel one we had! (Not why we switched them out though, lol the other one wasnt working properly!)
And more left view of the full kitchen (the doorway straight ahead leads you straight into the laundry room, the pantry's on the right, and the dining room on the left).
And further view towards the left! We love how open our kitchen is (coming from a tiny apartment with 2 drawers & no counter space!) and it's very functional. The only thing more I would ask out of it is a double oven (we host Thanksgiving!) but we're doing just fine with one for now. That's just something on my dream list!
We did recently install ourselves under-cabinet lights which we've loved!
So that's it for our kitchen & dining room this week! Thanks for stopping by!
