My Pretty Blue Cabinet

This old french provincial china cabinet got a powder blue finish.
 The cabinet is now turned on an angle. 
It used to be flat against the wall and was a hidden wallflower.
The other thing I added is the little teacup shelf.
 We celebrated my step-sons birthday last night 
and the streamers look so pretty in a vintage kind of way.
There were other balloons in fun colors but the decorator step-mom
 removed them for the photo-op this morning.
 The cabinet looks more white in this photo.
 It is a powder blue color BM Heaven on Earth.
 There is a soft blue-green color outlining the raised panel.
The doors have that wire grid that is very appealing.
I will be tackling the inside of the cabinet at some point
 as it still wears the traditional 1970 yellow finish. 
I have it stuffed with all my favorite stemware and china.
 My valentine banner is strung across the mirror. 5 days and counting!
This charming teacup shelf used to be in my New Hampshire house
 and it was Kennebunkport Green.
I bought it from my favorite NH shop, Rustique. 
You can look inside her shop at the end of this post!
This is a good view of my beadboard wallpaper too.
I painted this shelf Heaven on Earth too.
 Then I filled it up with this vintage Limoges demitasse set
I bought on a summer junking trip in NH. 
Look at the pretty hand painted colors in aqua and pink.
 On the top shelf are assorted favorite tea and demitasse cups in purple and pink.
My dining room...pale blues, pinks and purples with plenty of white and soft grey
The perfect place for a romantic dinner!

I also want to share an awesome giveaway for Valentines Day!
It is French Buttons First Giveaway.
Good Luck!

  12. I love the cabinet on an angle! It's a pretty focal point in the room and a nice soft color.

  13. You have created one GORGEOUS dining room. Your color palette is perfect for creating a serene, comfortable, yet sophisticated space. I admire your talent for choosing accessories and how you group and place those items... I am deficient in that department. :) Your blue china cabinet is divine and placing it on the angle draws more attention to it as a statement piece. I actually like the traditional yellow finish on the interior, but with if you have something else in mind I have no doubt it will look fabulous. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Heavenly indeed! I love the soft colors and the cabinet on an angle really gives it presence in the dining room. Your vision for decor amazes me.

  17. loved the tour of your dining room. That's quite a collection of china you have there. Looks like you had quite the party in that room the night before. So you are counting down the days till Valentine's...expecting something good?

  18. Hi Amy,
    You have such a unique way of blending soft colors and making them look so good. I really like the color of your cabinet and your diningroom is lovely. I like the way you have the table against the wall. You have created a very beautiful room.

    I know exactly the smocked PB curtains you are talking about!♥
    I didn't order those ones though. (thought about it...!) It's the white tie tops. I keep hoping maybe it will ship sooner, but I'm not holding my breath! ;)
    Have a great weekend.

  22. Your dining room is so charming. Love the new paint color on the cabinet. Wow! You have a lot of beautiful china! I think you should leave those blue streamers up there for Valentines. That's what I thought it was for. Looks romantic.

  23. Hi Amy,
    Your dining room looks amazing. I love the blue cabinet with all the pretty dishes and the teacup shelf too- a great way to display all your favorites.
    I enjoy seeing all your decorating projects.


  24. Amy, everything is just beautiful, so soft. I love the soft blue. The chandelier is great also. Your dishes look so great in it and their soft pretty colors blend with the soft colors of the cabinet. The streamers did look great! What a fun party room.

  25. So pretty, Amy. I love the pic showing your lavender wine glasses. The cabinet color is so soft. I really like the French cabinets with the wired windows. I passed one up a few years ago for lack of space...wish I had it now...although I still don't have the space. lol
