I'm fairly settled in my new home and thought I'd share snippets. It's not like I started completely fresh in decorating because I have many things that have meaning to me. My challenge I guess was to mix the very old, old, & new. So, it is what it is.

Here are a couple snippets of my new kitchen and dining. 

I may have more snippets later.

I like your backsplasp with your blue and white cabinets. The pattern is very pretty. I am a huge fan of blue interiors. I hope you enjoy your new home @Desert Lily

How pretty, charming and airy, @Desert Lily !   I think you said your walls were in B. Moore's "Linen White".   Are your upper cabinets as well?   They are a rich off-white, it looks like.  Love.  

 

I like that you opted for one glass front cabinet, which adds interest.

 

In the dining area, love your arch-top cabinet, your ethereal chandelier, your cross-back chairs, among other things.

 

It looks like it has come together beautifully.

@Oznell  My family's business was in decorative accessories. We imported a lot from Europe, including crystal. I purged some crystal, giving it to friends & family, but I still have my favorite pieces.

@Desert Lily,

This is all so pretty, interesting and yes, inviting! You did a lovely job.
