Welcome inside my dining room, where vintage charm meets modern style, thanks to Ballard Designs. Our refreshed dining room is so warm and inviting, it’s like stepping into a classic, holiday movie.
When we moved into this big, old colonial, we brought a minimal amount of small-scale furniture from our previous home– a sweet, Tudor cottage. Our realtor graciously chipped in $300 to transfer the furniture that remained in our new house. I remember thinking, “This will get us through until we can pick something that’s us.”
During the past six years I’ve tinkered, changed, made things work with the residual furnishings. But, I dreamed of a new dining table with clean lines. The existing had a low apron making it uncomfortable to scooch our tall bods around the table. It was also a hulking, French Country behemoth from the 60s that was too wide, narrowing our main walkway through the house.
(The old table is getting a second life on our back patio, thanks to hardy, marine varnish. Funny thing, I love it out there! The scale and curvy shape is a dreamy complement to the original, rumpled, limestone pavers.)
I had my eye on the perfect table at Ballard Designs– the exact size and style our dining room needed. It was finally the moment.

I couldn’t wait to mix vintage charm with fresh Ballard Designs pieces to create a warm and inviting space for our upcoming holiday hosting season.
The hearty performance rug is perfect for spills, and the bench is definitely the star of the show, coordinating perfectly with the sage in the cheery floral curtains. I even added a few other Ballard Designs details, like the little patterned shades that instantly updated our original sconces. Of course, no room of mine is complete without a dash of tassels and a squishy pillow! These small touches really make the room feel special and inviting.
I’m so happy with how the dining room turned out. It’s the perfect place to gather with friends and family for the holidays.
