Dining Room decor

Standard

For the past 13 years, my dining room in every house we’ve lived in has been filled with stuff from my mother-in-law. She collected crystal and delicate china and left it all to my husband. Nothing against that but really not my taste. Now that we’re in the process of moving from GA to MD, I have decided that the dining room will finally get to be mine. I will have a corner cabinet filled with tea cup sets but that’s it. The rest is mine.

Since the dining room was an easy to pack thing, that was the first room after the master bedroom that got unpacked here. Now, since I inherited all my grandparent’s stuff and my mother’s stuff, I had alot of boxes to go through. First, boxes that had been packed in Florida, 3 years ago. We have a collection of depression glass plates, fine china and my great grandmother’s awesome handmade pottery. (Really, she made lovely stuff – good form, great colors.) Then there’s the Passover dinnerware from my MIL. Yeah, that’s gonna go inside the hutch, along with all the glass, Waterford Crystal and china from my grandparents.

Ahhhh, now we get to the good stuff. Mid Century Modern dinner and glassware. My collection of vintage creamers and pitchers, my MCM stainless serving pieces. It’s all so lovely. I have a thing for aqua and amethyst glass due to the Hazel Atlas Capri Blue and Amethyst lines. I like the simple shapes with geometric bases. I haven’t brought everything with me. I have some stuff still in the kitchen, and more in the basement, but this is a good start.

And another view. I love the lines of the Metlox dinnerware.
