I was embarrassed when I last showed you around the home office/ dining room. I kind of want to cringe whenever I think that that's the incarnation which the world saw when they took the Prairie Home Tour.
So, I spiffed up this incredibly hard working room over the last six months or so, and now I'm happy to show it to you again. There haven't been any major changes: just little ones which make me just that much more content.
Gracing the entrance to the room from the front hallway, our knotty pine door remains the same.
I spend a lot of time in this room. The TV is in the next room (to the right of where I'm standing to take this picture, actually). Having a glass door between me and it has to be one of the best things in this house. It's genius. I can be visually connected and yet acoustically apart. Perfect.
I arranged the stuff on the Expedit. Some by colour: some by other criteria. I took great advice from the comments and changed things up a bit. I made some Bird Art for the top.
I lengthened the curtains.
I also made some lovely changes to the Walnut breakfront. To the top of it, that is. I'm still just stuffing things inside.
I didn't style these shelves, exactly. But I made a few small improvements.
And, moving around full circle to the desk area, no, I did not re-cover the office chair. Perhaps the next time we have a tour! I did, however, declutter and make the area brighter and more cheerful.
If you followed along during my struggle to establish a housekeeping routine during the 31 days of housekeeping series, you will be familiar with this area!
And here is a gratuitous artsy shot of the centre piece on the table.
Talk about a colour palette!

Lovely dining rooms there.
