Lakehouse Luncheon

Welcome to my lakehouse ladies! 
Peak into the room through the french doors.
This purple and green dining room
 is my favorite room in the house. 
This country table is set with two sets of china, 
and both are from consignment shops.
Similar in style with delicate floral patterns
 on a creamy background. 
Glass fruit dishes fresh from the day's trip
 to the swap shop sit on top.
Linen hemstitched napkins in light green
are paired with the lilac tablecloth. 
It has white embroidery petite fleurs.
 I made it from a fabric drapery remnant. 
I got the salmon pink etched wine glasses
 at an auction 20 years ago.
The tole centerpiece in salmon pink match the glasses.
I filled it with pale pink geraniums.
I never liked my chandelier so I draped 
amethyst crystal drapery trim on it and 
hung teardrop purple crystals from the arms.

The green country hutch is my favorite piece of furniture.
 It is a very nice reproduction, I think.
My purple transferware platters and plates
 on the walls are my favs!
The green linen drapes are unlined so the light filters in softly.
I paired a delicate yellow green and cream dinner plates 
with rustic forged iron flatware.
I found these wonderful rush seat chairs at a yard sale. 
6 chairs and a table for $150 bucks! 

A lovely setting for a country house by the lake.
Please come again!

  1. Sigh! SO gorgeous! I love your dining room, and your table sets it off beautifully. I'm sending a link to my sister, whose china features violets. She will REALLY love it!

  2. Beautiful, Amy! I love the open, airy feel of your dining room, and your china's beautiful. My heart skipped a beat or two when I saw your stemware. You probably already know this, but the pattern is "Flanders" by Tiffin, made from 1927-35. I had a pair of the tall water glasses like yours and broke one (not actually using it -- while cleaning up after doing a tablescape post last July!). I so enjoyed seeing yours, and they're perfect with everything you've shown us today!

    Thank you for your kind comment. Most of the window treatments in the house were done for the previous owners by a decorator in Bolivar, Tennessee. If they're dated, I don't care. I like everything he did. I'm sure he'd be flattered if you did something similar!

    Warm regards,

  3. I love the colours in your room! And the centerpiece! Lovely!

  4. I love your purples and greens! Your hutch is gorgeous!


  5. So pretty! Those dishes are all lovely. I love what you did with your lamp...the beads and ribbon really dressed it up. Such an inviting setting.

  6. WOW! I love everything in this room!

  7. So beautiful room, your setting is spectacular, love the cute centerpiece with the pink geraniums!


  8. The table is fantastic and the room is out of this world. What a lovely and pieceful setting. I like the christals on the light fixture -- really makes the room sparkle.

  9. Such a beautiful table! I especially love those pink etched glasses. I also must say how much I love that dining room. I never would have thought of using purple and green in a dining room, but it truly looks amazing. Thanks for sharing and happy TT to you!

  10. I love the cremy color of this china with the soft pastel decor. That and the center peice makes the table very springy, yes somehow airy. Like a fresh breeze on a warm day.
    Greetings, Johanna
