In the dining room, an earthy, organic feel is achieved with a beautiful wooden dining table and woven chairs. The neutral palette allows room for the bold centerpiece with its bright green leaves and pink flowers.
Shades of gray patterned wallpaper complements this white dining room table, around which are positioned purple and black chairs. Several floral centerpieces, made up of pink and yellow flowers, are positioned in the middle of the table, with a unique chandelier overhead.
Usually, when you think windows, you don't think decoration, but this window has become the focal point of this space. The two slender mirrors add plenty of natural light to the space, which is reflected off of the small, starburst mirror in the center. A green plant sits in front or each windows to add a touch of nature, while fresh pink flowers in a turquoise vase give the window a little splash of color.
A pendant chandelier brings decorative lighting over a wood dining table surrounded by upholstered chairs with nailhead trim. Turquoise bowls in the table settings add a pop of accent color joined by hot pink flowers in the centerpiece. A chalkboard gives a fun, family feel to the stylish room.
This kitchen dining area received a modern look with the addition of a dining table, chairs and starburst chandelier that give the room a sparkling presence. White and silver were the sole colors used in the room with the exception of a vase of pink flowers used as a dining table centerpiece. Designer Claire Paquin created a stunning yet inviting look for a traditionally ordinary space.
Peonies are old-fashioned favorites that are long-lived, flowering for generations. Peony blossoms come in a variety of flower forms, like these semi-double blooms of pink ‘Paula Fay.’ A single peony makes a stunning bouquet; combine several stems, and you have a centerpiece fit for any gathering. Plant early, mid- and late season peonies, and you’ll be picking the blooms for 6 weeks. Deer- and rabbit-resistant plants grow 35 inches tall and 24 inches wide. Hardy in Zones 3-8. Good vase companions for peony: lady’s mantle, clustered bellflower, catmint and hosta.
