A New Year, A New Softer Look!

Pin It Now!

You must be really tired of looking at pictures of my dining room but I changed out everything on the hutch after I took down all my Christmas decorations so I had to share it with you!


The blue and white transferware will be back but for now I wanted a softer, more shabby chic look for this dreary time of year. Have I mentioned that I thrive on change? Haha!   I used things I already had though...no new purchases were made!  Ahhh...the benefits of being a hoarder!

I took the crocheted vintage lace (a gift from my mom) from the shelf in my bedroom and added it to the hutch. I also took the "Cottage" sign from my bedroom.  I love this sign!  It was such a splurge, I think I paid $55 for it!  I love it so much so it was worth every penny!  Sometimes you just have to buy something you love even if it's not a great deal!  It has a cute little pink bicycle with flowers in the baskets.  I bought it from Denise at Couture de Papier a couple years ago.  She painted it on a board that washed up on the shore of Cape Cod...which makes it even more special to me!  



I'm loving the new look! I wonder how long before I change it again? 


Happy New Year Everyone!  This is going to be a great year! I can just feel it!!!!  My parents got a computer for Christmas and soon they will have the internet! I'm so happy that my mom will be able to finally see my blog regularly and visit all the wonderful blogs out there!  I told her it would be life-changing for her!  She's going to love it!

Update:  I just put this on HGTV's Rate my Space.  Please click here if you would like to rate it!

It's BEAUTIFUL and the sign is great too! I need a cabinet like that in my kitchen.
Happy New Year!

It is truely beautiful, I really wish that I had the majority of your collection. I love just about every piece you have! You are such an inspiration. I am in the process of creating my own blog, and I am learning so much from you. So thanks for the creative ideas.

A New England Life said...

Oh Cindy, how I would LOVE to have something like that in my house. How I wish my family liked the Shabby Chic look. Maybe one day I'll be able to give the kitchen just such a look. Maybe.

Good for your parents getting a computer! My parents refuse to buy one. It's too bad because they are missing out on so much, including my blog.

I do agree, sometimes you might spend a little more than you want, but you get something in return that you wouldn't trade for anything! I too love the sign.

Happy New Year!

Arleen said...

Hi Cindy. Your dining room looks beautiful! Winter white, and I love the lace on the shelves of the hutch.

Happy New Year to you, too, and thank you for all your ongoing inspiration. I agree -- 2009 is going to be a great year!

As much as I love the blue and white, this new softer look is a nice change too. That's what the new year is all about - change. You are so talented and such an inspiration. Happy New Year!

Tracy said...

Great new look! I have been playing with my "toys" today also, thinking how to decorate after I take down the Christmas decorations. I love the little blue robin eggs and the nest in the jar, ties in well with the sign. I don't think anyone here will ever get tired of looking at your dining room!

Susan said...

I think I see a few ofyour new goodies on your shelf...

Looks beautiful

Happy New Year...see you in 2009!

Anecia Ross from Red Water, Texas. said...

Oh Cindy, I sure hope the new year brings in some new blog ideas. I'm seriously getting tired of the same old look even if it's new.

Happy New Year.

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Anencia....I don't understand why you would come back here if you are tired of my blog. It's not like I'm forcing you to look at it!

sweetmemorymakingmom said...

Cindy, Love the new look of your hutch. And I never tire of your fabulous decorating. I love your style and ability to use things you have. I am the same way. I love change. Many Blessings in the New Year. hugs, Ellen

Shari R. said...

Personally, I NEVER get tired of looking at beautiful things. Many of my favorite decorating books and magazines have been looked at dozens and dozens of times and I always seem to see something new and inspiring. To me, your blog is like one of my much loved and well read decorating books or magazines...except without the dog-earred pages!

miss gracies house said...

I think *softer* is the new shabby-there is something so peaceful about it, isnt' there?
Happy New Year!

I love the hutch and your new decorations! The cottage sign is a treasure!! Happy 2009!!

Joy said...

Gorgeous changes. Love the sign; it really stands out above the hutch. How nice for your mom to keep track of your blog now!

Angela (Cottage Magpie) said...

Just went to Rate My Space to say just what I'm going to say here: gorgeous! Such a beautiful arrangement. I love the soft colors -- just what I'm going for in my house this year. Swoon!

Linda said...

Really beautiful Cindy, you have a great eye for putting things together. You have made me appreciate shades of blue!

Happy New Year!

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

How pretty! I have a built in hutch in my library/study area which is on my 2009 project list to paint white- hoping it will look 1/2 as pretty as yours!

Happy New year!

Stunning Cindy! You never disappoint! Best for 2009. I love the very creamy look as well.

Rose said...

VERY pretty Cindy! Love the softer look and I'm with you on this dreary mess. I also love changing stuff around. I'd go insane if it had to stay the same way all the time.

debi @ life in my studio said...

OMGosh! I love the new look! It's so soft and dreamy!
I'm getting ready to paint a similar cabinet in my house...thanks for the inspiration!
Happy New Year!

Oh Cindy, how nice and what an inspiration for us!! It makes me wanna throw all my christmasthings in boxes...I love your style..it is so nice, friendly and lovely!! Kind regards from sylvia extra from Villa Extra (The Netherlands)

Ellie said...

I've been a lurker for a while now, but I felt I just wanted to say that your blog is a total inspiration to me. Looking at the pictures of your home (and learning how you collect things) has kept me going through a challenging year.

Happy New Year Cindy - and I for one am looking forward to more of the same.

Couture de Papier said...

Happy New Year Cindy! I am balling my eye's out! the sign is perfect with your Romantic Decor..I wish I had such good taste and an eye for decorating! I am sorry the sign was so expensive for you(I have seen other artisans charge more online..yikes!)...still crying...wish I was there to give you a hug..you really inspired and awakened my muse then! I just dragged home a couple boards on the shore ..should be more washed up when the blizzard is over..God knows what will be out there!
I just moved into a 1950's old Coast Guard Cottage..with dark paneling! I cannot paint because I am a renter!..the bathroom is vintage black and pink tile that I love! 6 degrees!..I think I will blow dust off my paintbrush today!!xxoo Denise Hull,Massachusetts

Margaret's Ramblings said...

I love what you have done. It is beautiful. And that sign - well I know what you mean about just having to buy something. It is very special. How about a bigger picture of it. Happy New Year. Margaret

Mary said...

Cindy, You have such an eye for design...Your other display was perfect and how you can change it out so quickly and have it look so wonderful is amazing! I love the softer look and how you did it w/o buying anything new is even more inspiring. I love the sign and when something speaks to you like that did you have to treat yourself!
Welcome Cindy's MOM!!!

Iowa Gal said...

I love to come to your house and "hover and snoop". The sign may have cost $55 but the important thing is it brings a smile to your face. After seeing your hutch I think I will paint mine too. I have some of my grandmothers lace so it will go in there. HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM IOWA.......JAN

One more thing... said...

By the way, I want to also Thank You for linking us to all of the other blogs here. I have a new appreciation for vintage collectables because of what I've seen in the blog library through your site!

Mary Ruth said...

How could ANYONE tire of looking at THAT dining room! Not me!
LOVE IT ALL! I will come by often to view it over and over! I will also pass on the link to here so my friends can see it too!
Happy New Year!

Essemia said...

Happy new year to you Cindy! And - I don't think we've ever get tired of your things. You are so good in arrangeing the pots and other things. And I must say I just loved the Christmas present you'd got in your former post (the one with the tags!).
Love Elzie

This is absolutely beautiful. I love the look. Nothing better than the shabby chic. I totally understand about the cottage sign...sometimes you just "gotta have it"!

Cindy, you never cease to amaze me with your talent in putting the right thing in the exact spot it was meant!

Happy New Year. I look forward to lots of your decorating ideas in 2009!

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

OH Cindy, When I got to your site and started strolling down, that sign caught my eye. I LOVE it! Then as I was getting further down I starting drooling over all your stuff. STOP THE MADNESS I can't take it anymore. The way you have everything right now is the best of the best. I wouldn't change it for awhile. This is so heavenly! As time goes by your getting better by the minute. Of coarse you are going to my file of photos.

Tanya said...

I love the soft, aqua blues with the whites. My favorite color combo! You always do such a beautiful job. Happy new year!

Mimi said...

Cindy, I thought that on this first day of the year, I would share with you that it was you and your blog that gave me the confidence to enter the world of "the blog" myself. Thanks so much for sharing all you do of your life, talent and skill. Have a great New Year!

Linda's Blue Gate said...

I just have to say..... I thought about it and it just makes me MAD..... that Anecia comment is just RUDE and uncalled for...... Isn't it interesting that when someone leaves a rude remark they NEVER leave their blog address...... cause let me tell you.... they would feel the wrath of blogland coming down on them....
How dare they say rude things to you....

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

I really mess up typing so fast, and then it happens I press the wrong key and boom my comment is already out, I do that alot. Sorry but I met scrolling down I need to come down a litle bit. I guess I get so excited looking at beautiful things. I could blame it on Cindy but I won't..

The White Bench said...

Hi Cindy! Thank you for your precious comments- I felt soo honoured!
Happy New Year with this great new look!

Cindy I never get tired of seeing any of your pics, they are gorgeous, always!! I also thrive on change, my poor dh, I think it wears him out. LOL! Thank you for your amazing blog. From one of your loyal readers, Cindy S. (PS I post as "anonymous" only because I can't seem to post otherwise, maybe it's because I don't have a blog.)

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Very pretty! I need to try for a different look around my home.

Becky from Tennessee said...

Cindy, I LOVE the look!! Your home
is absolutely beautiful!! I agree
with you, Cindy, the Cottage sign
is wonderful. I went to the site
you showed but she didn't have
anything like your sign available.
Everything is so soft and dreamy, Cindy. It's a wonderful look! It
makes me want to redecorate my dining room! HAPPY NEW YEAR, Cindy! Hope you have a happy and
healthy one! Becky

Becky from Tennessee said...

Hi Cindy, I just wrote and don't
understand why my comments always
skip lines, etc. Anyway, after
reading Anecia's comment....I agree
with you, WHY does she continue to
visit your blog AND leave negative
comments.....hmmmm, makes me think
she isn't a very happy person and
appears to be mean-spirited. Yep,
I think all your fellow bloggers
that LOVE your site should be able
to comment to her personally. Oh
well, just forget her, Cindy, and
remember that there are alot of us
that absolutely LOVE your site and
home. I love your ideas and
creativity, Cindy! Becky

Pat@MyTatteredElegance said...

Personally I love looking at gorgeous rooms full of beautiful treasures. I think you need to keep up the good work.

You give me inspiration for my little home. Wish mine looked as good as yours, and if the garage sales & flea markets hold out one day it might.

I love everything!
Smiles,
Pat

HAPPY New Year!

PamperingBeki said...

It's really lovely, Cindy!

One of my goals for this year is to incorporate more white into my decor. I have LOADS of tan, taupe, chocolate brown, and as much as I like the neutrals, I really need some white to brighten and freshen it up.

char72 said...

You're right about your Mom. It will open up a whole new world for her.
I love your new softer look. I don't see how you could make it more beautiful, but you did. I love it.
Have a wonderful new year.

I love that cottage sign too and from authentic Cape Cod wood, wow!

Change is good especially in the new year.

Happy New Year, Cindy!!
I just LOVE your new, softer look in your hutch! Just beautiful! Who would've thought a different shade of blue would make such a difference? I still want your turkey plates, though:)
That's the perfect spot for the pretty sign ~ sometimes you've gotta splurge. How many times do we talk ourselves out of something because of the price and then regret it forever!?

Best Wishes,
Karin

Gayle @ Mountainmoma said...

It looks lovely. I love to change things around as well. Have you seen the movie "Because I Said So"? The main character is always moving her furniture around. My daughters say that character is me! I just tell them the energy pattern in the room was stuck and I needed to change the flow!

Garden Antqs Vintage said...

Hi Cindy, I am loving these pics of your home. Hope you've had a great New Years day and have many many more great ones to come.

Millie said...

Your blog is just beautiful. You always wow me! I love the new changes in your armoir and I am certainly not tired of it at all. Your blog is like a great magazine. I love how you change it up without spending any money! You are so, so creative. Please continue to bring us more of your lovely romantic home style.

Dream Mom said...

I love the new look. I think the sign looks just perfect there and the crocheted vintage lace is a pretty addition. Everything looks so feminine and beautiful. It is such a treat to read your blog.

I love lace and the pretty dishes. I am a new reader and have been treating myself to the archives over the last few days. I collect teapots and teacups and saucers-love your Christmas tree and love the teacup wreath that was posted a while back.

You have also inspired me to paint some end tables that I got for a song. I'll have to wait until it warms up a bit though-it's pretty chilly here in the midwest.

Happy New Year to you too.

RobinfromCA said...

Beautiful new look for the winter! I'm actually loving our dreary weather and we do need the rain so desperately. This dumb broken shoulder of mine has had me five steps behind on everything. So sad I missed your year in review event and really sad I missed the after sale at Vintage & Vogue! I gave my friend a shopping spree there for Christmas so we're looking forward to what the new items will be!! Happy 2009!

The Liberty Belle said...

Beautiful and romantic! I love the look. Wishing you an exceedingly blessed New Year.

Thanks for your sweet comment about my New Orleans Painting. I love Disneyland New Orleans and it's probably as close as I'm going to get to the real New Orleans LOL!

I scrolled through your blog to find the three tiered dish that you Mom bought in the 60's
If it's the one with all of the Christmas balls, pearls, bling and the starfish .....it's exquisite!!

No wonder you have the taste you do if that's what your Mamma was buying from Disneyland in the 60's !
You both have exquisite taste !

Cheers,

Bre

Elizabeth G. said...

Cindy,

I hope that you won't mind if I copy some of your ideas. They are all so great.

A question...Aren't you in California? If so, realizing that is earthquake territory, aren't you afraid to have your breakables out? I live in Utah, which is also earthquake territory and I worry about it all that time (I use to live in LA, with some earthquake experience). Do you use putty to try and anchor things?

Just a practical question.

God Bless,
Elizabeth

I love your new look - I love the splash of colour contrast the sign makes. As they say "A change is as good as a holiday"

Wonderful your parents will be on the internet soon, maybe your Mum will start her own blog oneday

I'm off to visit your new photos on HGTV's Rate my space

Mimi said...

Cindy, I haven't gone through all your pages and photos, but have you ever done a bathroom? I have three of them and I sure could use some good ideas, ones where you don't rip out all the walls and start from scratch!

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Mimi, no I haven't done anything to my bathrooms. I had planned to wallpaper my small powder room while I was off 2 weeks for Christmas but I haven't even started it yet!

What a beautiful hutch you have. Love the sign and the lace is such a perfect touch. Love the blue and white together too.

Cindy- I love these tassels! I am going to have to try them!

I have an award that I would like to pass on to you if you don't mind. It is a little different from other awards and I think it speaks of you perfectly. Would you hop over to my blog when you have a minute to pick it up.

Blessings
