Decor Inspiration: White Dining Tables {12 lovelies}

But her all-white color palette stands out most of all. Even though Ashwell admits there was a time when choosing white was considered "safe," now she thinks it's a neutral color with wow factor — even going as far as calling it powerful, brave, and statement-making (we have to agree!).

I took a big risk this weekend and painted
our very old harvest table white…I will share
images of it soon, and as these photos prove,
white can be just right.

The single most important thing you can do for a room is to light it well. Even a space that is flooded with natural light by day needs a little help once the sun goes down.:

I love the idea of a mirror right next to the dining table to make the dinner party appear twice as big and also making the table appear more full!:

We are exhausted from all the projects

Peace to you right where you are.

    Hi Michele! I've been thinking about you, I've been missing you and your special brand of beauty. I hope you are simply relishing all the wonder of December. I've had a hard time keeping up with blogging lately although I am finally putting house back together after the new floors. I look forward to seeing your newly painted table.

    The table turned out amazing. I am planning to paint some of my old wood furniture and I was thinking to use light colours. Now I am even more certain. Thanks!

    Oh my goodness Michele, i love all of these! The light fixtures kinda make a lot of them too. Trying to catch up on you with 50 distractions going on here, and wondering how the whole house thing is going

    Hey Michele,
    There are some really amazing tables. The marble one is one of my favorites. Cheers. Easy to clean, stable and you can literally combine it with almost any colour, especially dark. Great pictures.

    xoxo Jessie
