Breakfast Room with Red With Gold

I thought it was time to create another tablescape.  I have been busy coding and helping fellow bloggers with their templates. Exciting News, we are getting our new adjustable bed and mattress on Thursday.  I will be writing a post all about it.

The navigation tutorial with images is almost complete.  I will be sharing that soon.

Creating a red and gold tablescape in the red breakfast room.  This is our high drama room.

Parchment Red by Mikasa for the tea cups and 222 Fifth Gabrielle for the plates.

I want to re-cover the chairs in this room, so they are more neutral.  I also feel they need more padding.  After sitting in our very padded dining room chairs, these chairs need some extra padding.

Red, gold and green napkins from Pier1  are sitting in the golden goblets.

Red flatware from Horchow when they were on sale.

A tall floral arrangement I put together for the  black serving cart, flanked by two tall mercury candle holders.

The Wisteria and Lady banks have just about quit blooming.  I wish they would last all Summer.
It's almost time to plan a brunch outsider on the copper table.

I am sharing with the following parties: Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up

  1. Linda I think if I lived closer I would just have to invite myself over for breakfast in that gorgeous room. I'd bring goodies..wink.

  2. Right now the colors go so well w/ your chairs..:) We bought new dining chairs for the sunroom because we needed more padding too:)
    Looking forward to the bed review..Have a nice end of week Linda...

    I think you may be out of wine;)

  3. Beautiful tablescape! I'm quite partial to red!

  4. Just gorgeous. I love the dishes and flatware.

  5. What a gorgeous tablescape, Linda! You sure do have a special touch in creating stunning arrangements! Love it!

  6. Lovely Linda! I like red, though I don't use much of it now except for at Christmas. By the way...I like your new header! Sheila

  7. Linda, that red room is gorgeous. So much energy but so classy. Thanks for all the help that you give all of us and you are a little ahead of us up on the hill as far as garden growth goes. Your wisteria is just beautiful..Happy Tuesday..Judy

  8. Red and gold -- aren't they the colours of good fortune and money in Chinese culture?

  9. Everything looks beautiful, Linda! I love red! And your garden is gorgeous. Have a lovely evening. ♥

  10. Hi Linda! I don't have words! Your tablescape is so pretty and your landscape - oh, my Lord! Gorgeous! Hope all is well and Yay to getting a new mattress. We need one.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  11. Well, I am glad you did the red and gold table before you recovered the chairs, as the chairs were perfect with the dishes. That is a drama room! But you and I both love that!
    Your outdoor area is stunning! So jealous! Finally home and with the internet again! Thanks for the feature on my table. I wasn't able to see it before now!

  12. Oh, how I love red. It's such a vibrant and wonderful color. Your table setting is so pretty, Linda. I really like the red glass vase. The black serving cart is cool, and the red rose really stands out in those flowers. What a beautiful view you have. Such peaceful surroundings. That looks like it might be wisteria?

    love, ~Sheri

    1. I like your new Header also, it's very springy! :)

  13. Oriental looking. I love it.
    That room is so gorgeous. I wish you didn't neutral the chairs I love the bang they give in that fabric, playing around the greatness of fabrics and details around.
    Your outdoor areas look heavenly.

  14. Good Morning Dear Linda!
    Oh how I love this rich, red and elegant table setting and you shopped at some lovely stores too:)
    You surely must bask in the beauty of your backyard and oh that Wisteria...I really must get some for our backyard. I don't know much about it, but it is time I learned!
    Beautiful, my friend.
    I love, love your new header:)

  15. Oh my Linda, your table is so elegant and the teacups and plates, even though they are different patterns, blend so well together. I know you want more neutral chairs, this setting went perfectly with the fabric on the chairs.
    Your outside view is so gorgeous! I think I'd be out there all the time.

  16. Wow, a lovely elegant table that pairs perfectly with your room. Those dishes make a grand statement. I love your chairs and all your furnishings.
    The pergola in your garden is gorgeous. I can spell the intoxicating scent of wisteria through the computer just thinking about it.

  17. Dearest Linda! HELLO! Late as usual, but first of all, thank you for having visited my blog. I am having a BLAST with my photos and my model! We have much in store.

    Your lush wisteria, OH that the envy of a gardener. How I wish we could grow that here! ENJOY! Oh, and your tablescape is fabulous!

  18. Oh red & gold gorgeous-ness! So beautiful! That wisteria is amazing.

  19. Wow! What a gorgeous table setting and floral arrangement!
    Thanks for sharing this with us at Cooking and Crafting with J & J.
    Enjoy the rest of the week. :)

  20. Your table is perfect with your chairs! I understand that you might like something more neautral but these are really beautiful! The dishes are so pretty. I wish I could come sit at your table with you!

  21. I almost missed this! How pretty all the red and gold is together. Those chairs are elegant though I understand the need for a neutral look. I'm so happy with my chairs- the color mixes in with any look easily.
    Thank you once again for working on another new look for my blog! I just love it!

  22. Hi Linda-
