Hellooooo to week 3 of the One Room Challenge! Last week I shared the run-down on visual design plans for our living room portion of our open floorplan. This week it’s all about our dining room design plan.
Since we have quite a bit of color happening in our living room design, I wanted to keep the dining space more neutral, especially since we’ll be using it for entertaining content around here!
The featured photo is the general idea of the room placement and the below round-up graphic gives you a better idea of the specific elements by themselves. You know, in case something is unrecognizable via my photoshop skills haha!
I’m still on the fence about not having a rug underneath the table and what I should do as far as general decor in the middle of the table…
For instance, I don’t love the idea that rugs can get dirty very easily under the dining table, especially when you have a toddler running around like we do. I do love that rugs visually ground living spaces, so we’ll see if I end up changing my mind on that.
As for decor on the tabletop, this can always change seasonally but I do like having a staple piece that fills the space so that it doesn’t look too stark on a daily basis when we’re not entertaining and things like that.
I may end up reusing this elongated gold bowl from our old dining room since it will be the perfect size and shape again.

The construction crew at Genesis has been working hard behind the scenes on replacing the flooring, plus patching and prepping the scuffed places and popcorn ceilings from the previous owners.
We did run into one MAJOR hurdle that we found out about after peeling up the only vinyl flooring that showed you in week 1. Let’s just say it cost us a pretty penny! Any guesses on what it was?!
I’ll be sharing the full scoop on that in next week’s update post, so check back in on Wednesday!
