I know, I know, I know…I’m totally a day day late on posting my progress for one room challenge!!! BUT I had a super busy day yesterday as we made the hike back to our Alma Mater for Homecoming weekend! I am super excited to share what has been going on in our dining room as this makeover is beginning to take shape, so stick around and get all the details!
If you want to go look at my initial design plan HERE in my first ORC post you can see my overall vision for our dining area. You’ll notice The amazing marble top tulip table and the black cross back chairs. I LOVE our table and I really enjoy how the super modern table and more casual-traditional chairs play together. The white chairs, are my kids chairs. I had though for a while about removing them from the picture because they are just a different element. But this is our real life, if you come to our house these sweet little chairs are at our table and I more than anything want to convey that we make our home livable for kids. I am however, thinking of painting them black. What do you think? A new black paint job will just let them feel a part of the “big people” chairs and allow them to stand out against the beige-y walls and white table.
Last week(Link HERE) I highlighted how I have used black washi tape to define the space with faux picture frame moulding. This has really emphasized just how high our ceilings are and it breaks up the big blank walls. I decided to hang large photo grid of beautiful black and white photos in white frames and mats and I feel that this compliments the space just perfectly without over complicating the area or making it feel too busy. As you can see below I’m slowly but surely adding pillows to my cross back chairs. I love Caitlin Wilson textiles and these pillows are to die for! They pick up all my accent colors and add a great punch of color!
You can see my Fall/Halloween decor in the center of the table. I’m thinking of replacing it with large Ginger Jars filled with flowers for the finale and for every day decor. I have to applaud myself for edging out of my comfort zone and decorating for a holiday/season that isn’t Christmas.
You guys! Thanks so much for dropping by to see my One Room Challenge Progress! I’m so excited about how much we’ve achieved so far in this little dining room of ours and I can’t wait to show you more!
