Inspired New Look for the Dining Table

I was sorting through my candle holders and deco items and literally had these piled on the table.  I was trying to figure out a new place to put some of these.  Later I was sitting at the kitchen table and started thumbing through a Pottery Barn catalog.

Bang!  There was an image that inspired me to cluster my things altogether.

I studied their image and realized they had two large pieces on either end and then a mix of different height candle holders.

I showed some of these pieces in a post last February "here".  I can't believe it's been that long since I shared some interior decorating.

I had everything for some time now but these two candle holders are newer.

I didn't intend to duplicate there's but it gave me a framework to get started.

I was pleased when Dan finally saw it and reacted with a "wow I like that"!
I know it's not for everyone but I like it!

This is the first fussing I've done inside in a long time.  I've been devoted to the outside more than anything but lately I've found I'm gravitating indoors a bit more.  I moved the living room furniture around last week and I'm still tweaking.  I'll share that soon!

I will be joining:


  1. It came out FABULOUS my friend ! I love it, my kind of style and each piece is great and chosen perfectly. I also love the way you arranged the. Your dining room looks lovely, Pottery Barn worth too.

  2. I meant the way you arranged all your pieces.

  3. Love it! Your candle holders look fabulous all together on your dining room table!

  4. It's gorgeous, Liz! I even like yours better than theirs. You have a true gift. :-)

    I like your new "combined" blog. It's easier for us in keeping track and for you with posting to only one blog. I hope you have a wonderful week!

  5. So very pretty. What a great touch that is. Love it.

  6. I love it! I love it much more than Pottery Barn's. The clear glass in theirs disappears but the architectural look of yours stands out more & is much more appealing to me. .....Now, let me think, do I have enough to copy this as well?!

    1. Thank you Jenny- yes theirs is hard to see- I had to do a bit of zooming on the picture!

  7. I was going through and put the brakes on with your first photo, Liz! It's a great look. I love how you captured the candleholders by facing the light. It looks like a cover!

  8. Inspiration...that's what I love! Studying something that attracts you and then finding such inspiration that you're moved to create something that is YOUR OWN!!! Fabulous job!

  9. It's very pretty, Liz, I love the look. I am like you right now, focusing on the outside, but the inside is calling. I am almost ready to reach for those pumpkins, almost... ;)

  10. Liz,
    What a beautiful collection you have and what a lovely display you have created with them!!
    Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!!

  11. Oh Liz, I agree with Dan! It looks wonderful and very sophisticated! ♥

  12. I love it when I find great inspiration from a catalog. You did a fantastic job re-creating an idea from PB! The table looks beautiful!

  13. Love the grouping of candle holders. They look fabulous on your table. Pottery Barn has some great inspiration photos.

  14. So pretty! I love how you've arranged all of these!

  15. So pretty Liz!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!
