We have downsized quite a bit with this home. That can be good and bad. The limited space can make one think of new ways to incorporate items. The seasons change but not necessarily the decor in all aspects.
I sometimes have to add little touches of color for Fall and Winter, and take away color for Spring and Summer. This container of flowers is one such item that has colors that can take it through all of the seasons with the exception of Christmas. I guess I am frugal....My favorite of course is to cut flowers from the flower gardens. Fresh is always the best, but not always available. Sometimes you have to improvise.
Very simple linen, or cut work tablecloths may be added or simple place mats for very casual dining. The smallest of touches can make such a difference, below I have added our everyday dishes with Rooster Accent Plates all by Lenox.
You may notice I use assorted patterns of dinnerware but you wouldn't notice at first glance. For some reason I bore easily with china, glassware and silverware. I have stored china of all sorts that is one of my weaknesses.
I do love white, off white or even clear patterns they seem to be easier to live with for very long when you bore as easily as I do. Another plus you can mix and match to your hearts content, even if others don't see it... All pieces by Lenox
