Luckily our dining room was one of the spaces in our house that didn’t require any major construction outside of installing the wainscotting throughout the second floor (same as our living room makeover!) and having a new chandelier wired.
Even though we didn’t do a full overhaul for this room, it was in dire need of updating! I’d had the same random Ikea pieces and old artwork in the space for way too long. Since we aren’t changing too, too much, I decided not to put together a Photoshop rendering of the space to keep a little of the mystery alive. I don’t want you to get too bored with me constant house renos, haha!
We decided to keep our same dining room table and bench that my good friend Bob from Merge Studios made for me several years back, and updated it with new dining room chairs from Article. We’re also swapping out the old, open Ikea shelves for a dark wood buffet to make the space feel more elevated.
The only thing I’m still debating on is which type of artwork should go over the credenza, but I included a few fun options in the round-up, so let me know what you think!
It’s also crazy to think this is what the space looked like before we installed the wainscotting…such a huge difference a little decorative white wood can make.
The biggest change you’ll see coming up is with the kitchen island that connects to this space!…
Wayfair chandelier // think pink artwork // Article gold large pot // Article aloe green dining chair // Article walnut mid century buffet // mountainside artwork // Article black leather walnut counter stool // gold oblong tray // green cacti artwork // Sherwin Williams Emerald Extra White
We’ve still been sticking with the same Sherwin-Williams Extra White throughout the main spaces of the house, but are doing a pop of color in the kitchen soon! I’m also thinking of adding a little more blush pink with the artwork and this lamp, what do you think?
