Create a fresh spring dining nook with beneficial houseplants and a simple table throw. The look is effortless and organic.
In case you haven’t noticed already, my home decor is changing from light and white to cozy and earthy. So when it came to creating a spring dining nook, my choices were obvious.
A single houseplant, a gorgeous Dracaena Florida Beauty in an equally beautiful gray planter, serves as the centerpiece for my spring dining nook. I just love this plant and it’s super easy to grow.
The kitchen might just be the one room in our home that I keep light and bright. I like walking into a cheery kitchen with lots of natural light. Plus I’m afraid that any color will compete with the flooring and make the room seem a bit overwhelming. The trim in this room was painted kelly green when we moved in. Too much, in my humble opinion.
Hubby gave me this Wandering Jew for my birthday. I’ve heard they only look good for a year and then get straggly. Time will tell.
A simple table throw adds just enough color and texture. One of my readers asked “what’s a table throw” and I don’t think I ever answered the question. It’s really just a small table cloth or similar that only covers a portion of the table but is larger than a table runner. It gives a more relaxed and casual look.
Additional texture is added to my spring dining nook with rattan plate chargers and glass holders. My new linen and pom pom napkins soften the place setting.
I’ve been toying with the idea of adding a sisal rug of sorts under the table. What do you think? Rug or no rug?
