Quarters One Christmas Tour: Living Room and Dining Room


Welcome back!
In the past I have described my design style as a French Country/Italian Seaside Villa combo.  Having lived (and shopped) in Germany and Italy for almost 10 years I, literally, bought into the beautiful colors and style of those areas.
Lately, I've become a fan of the Farmhouse movement which, to me, is clean and simple.
You'll see all those things mixed in with this tour of our quarters....as I am redefining my style!
Like the last tour, I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves!


I love this  beautiful live cedar garland from Lynch Creek Farms!











Our Fontanini creshe from Italy.





















More of Quarters One Christmas tour in a few days!
Thanks for stopping by...

Quarters One Christmas Tour: The Oyster Room


Welcome!
 Since this will be our first, and only, Christmas in these quarters I decided to share over a series of blogs and use more photos and less "talking"!
The first room I want to share is our sunroom.
My favorite room in the house was inspired by a bowl of oyster shells!
I hope you like it as much as I do!

A room with a view....










Faux mercury glass ornaments from Stuttgart, Germany adorne this tree, our family room tree will remain untrimmed since my son in law is deployed this Christmas.





Red is my signature color....
(isn't that a good phrase for something you use way too much of??!
and this room gets just a touch at the top of the tree.


I decorated this old bookcase like a mantle since we have only one fireplace in our current quarters.
(The original Q1 at Fort Riley had 5 and we had 2 at Fort Myer!)














My grand puppy, Scout, was rescued from a South Korean dog meat market by Animal Hope and Wellness...
isn't he precious?!

Hope you enjoyed this quiet tour! 
Come back to see more of Quarters One and don't forget to follow us on Facebook and Instagram!

With Gratitude,
Shand
