Calming, redecorated breakfast nook

You might remember when I posted about our mischievous little dog, Beasley starting this project for us. Our great painter tested my patience (which I don't have much of) and made me wait for two months. John the painter was busy. I had to wait. Staring at bare walls for that long would drive even drive the sanest of people insane. And I don't claim to be sane. :)

The long awaited (for me at least) breakfast nook is complete, and I think it turned out just great. Also, I got my inspiration for this room from Traditional Home, and posted the pics in an old post. The room I found inspiration from was much more formal than my little room, but I just fell in love with the color.

This is really a pretty room. I am not much of a fan of pastel colors but when I saw this on your wall I changed my mind. The way you accessorized the room is perfect as well. Simple but elegant. Great job! :-)

Thank you so much Carrie! There is still work to do (and I need to add a pic of the radiator cover - it looks SO polished with that on!). I'm looking for new chairs and window treatments. I found some at Restoration Hardware, but I might just have them made. :) Thanks for your sweet words!
