Orchid Beauty in the Dining Room

Hello everyone!

This week has been flying by.  I must say, though, it has been hard watching all of the devastating images on the national news lately.  Have you been following it? It seems every day, there is a new accident and tragedy to discuss.  It's hard to figure out what to make of it all. On top of that, I've been dealing with a flare-up with my Ankylosing Spondilits in my back.  It's hard to bend over or lift anything.  So, I'm trudging on despite all of the negativity around me.  I'm hoping it will all improve soon.

I've been enjoying my pretty fuchsia orchid in my dining room lately.  Remember, it used to be in my family room?  Once I made some changes in there, the orchid moved to my dining room table.  I instantly loved the pop of color it gave the room. 



I'm afraid it's blooming cycle is coming to an end soon.  It has begun dropping petals lately.


So, I cherish every day I have with it until it goes dormant.  It is my favorite orchid!

I don't think much else has changed in the room.  I'm still enjoying my branch display.



I still have blue and white dishes on display too.





I did switch out pillows in my chairs to these grey and white ones.  I love the detail on them.



The morning is my favorite time in my dining room.  The sunlight just pours in.  I have windows on two sides of the room!

So, are you getting ready for a fun weekend?  It will be here before you know it.  I will be taking it easy until my back gets better.  

Thanks for stopping by!

The room with the orchid is very serene...I love the calming colors, and that orchid is the perfect spot of color. I'm praying for better world news in the coming days...it does seem like we are in a bad place now. My hopes and prayers are for world peace- and I hope your back is soon better. Pain is no fun.

Sorry to hear about your back :(. That's one body part that we can't ignore when it's hurting.

I love your home Kelly! It's just stunning, and the neutral colors are right up my alley!

Kelly,
I love seeing your dining room and the orchid does really give a nice pop of color. So pretty. Hope your back is feeling better soon. Nothing worse than back issues. Take care and have a good week end.

Your home is so pretty Kelly! I love looking at your photos! I had an orchid... I killed it. It was so finicky ...light, water, conversation .... ain't nobody (here) got time for that :-)
I pray your back feels better soon! And yes, the news is depressing. We can all count our blessings! Have a great weekend!

I know what you mean about all the depressing news lately. I really wish they had a "good news only" channel. I'd totally watch that. :) Your dining room is so pretty. That's nice to have windows on two sides. I've never noticed that decoration above your front door before. I love how it looks! Hope your back feels better really soon. It's hard to find a comfortable position with a sore back.

I'm sorry you are having a flare with your condition. I don't know if I've ever heard of it before but I do have friends with lupus and RA. Their pain is often related to stress. I hope you will feel better soon. I always enjoy the way you coordinate all the different hues of white and neutrals to make everything so bright and inviting. You are so talented. Feel better soon.

Flowers always brighten a room. And we are having to limit our news watching...it's so depressing and also repetitive. We are having a quiet weekend! Sweet hugs, Diane
