Decor with A Mix of New and Old, with a little blue.

We love a mix of old and new. We feel it creates interest in any room and style.  For us, there is a comfort to this style. My daughter is getting married in January.  As she is getting ready for a new season in her life, so am I.  Looking throughout my home and remembering the things that were passed down from generation to generation.  My grandmothers china, silver, and the old furs that are in the closet.  As we reflect back on the seasons in our life, the most important thing to us is our love of family and friends.

This dinning room has a flare of old and new.
Its white washed brick gives the room character. The chandelier is contemporary with a hint of tradition. 

As my daughter is entering this new season, leaving behind an old life and embarking on her new future, families will be blending together and new traditions will be created.

A romantic chandelier with a touch of blue. The bride wears a touch of blue to represent fidelity and loyalty.

Something new represents their hope for the future.

As the new couple collects treasures to build their new life, they will discover their own style....  a collection of new and old traditions.

New, old, something blue and something borrowed. There is something comforting about tradition. Danni and I have many traditions that we have passed down to our children.  Is there a tradition that your family has passed down that you hold close to your heart?  Or is there a new tradition that you will pass down to your children?  We would love to hear about them.

  7. Hi, me again. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog and have now added you to my sidebar. x Sharon

  8. Exciting times for you and your daughter. Our son is getting married next summer and Mom and Dad are approaching it somewhat wistfully. You hit the nail on the head - the closing of one chapter and the beginning of another.

    Time will tell as to what traditions carry over to the next generation. I hope Drew plays the same trick on his kids that I played on him and my Dad played on us kids one Christmas as we were approaching the age of questioning the existence of Santa Claus. After we were all asleep, he took his LLBean boots, covered them in ashes from the fireplace, walked from the fireplace to the Christmas tree and back to the fireplace. We were totally fooled, as was our son Drew when I did it to him!


  9. What an exciting time in your lives. My oldest is 19 and is stepping out of the nest a little at a time! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving such lovely comments. So happy to find you!

  13. This is so sweet...I have found myself getting more and more in to the decorating with things you love and mean something rather than just what looks pretty...these are some great examples...good luck with the wedding and congrats!

  14. Congratulations to you and your daughter. Exciting times ahead. Love the first and fifth images, by the way! Both are so beautiful and eclectic.


  15. What a sweet and thoughtful post. These images are just stunning. The lighting is fabulous.

  16. All of these lovely images were so inspirational. I could move right in to any of those rooms.

    My best wishes to the happy couple.

  17. Congratulations! So exciting! I agree with you about old and new- nothing makes a room more interesting that the combination of both. Lovely images, as always!

  18. I love the all white armoire, how beautiful all white is. Why don't I have something all white? Hmmmm......

    My daughter got married 2 years ago and just moved into a new home. I think I enjoy watching her start her life and make decorating decisions more than I enjoy my own.
