One of the big items on our house hunting wish-list was a defined dining room, and I am pleased to say we can cross that off the list! It’s an almost blank canvas, with a nice touch of architectural detail (gotta love that board and batten!). Thus far we’ve painted it white and then used it as a storage room for painting equipment for two months, ha! But seriously… it’s been sitting empty with the exception of our painting supplies for some time now, and I’m ready to get this show on the road and have a legitimate place to eat a meal.
I’ve been pulling inspiration images for a long time (and even shared some thoughts on the blog before), but these are the few that I have honed in on. Every single one is made up of modern elements with a few vintage touches thrown in. And it goes without saying that I’m loving all the white walls and warm accent colors.
So now I’m working to get this feeling in our house… I’ve got some ideas about the table and chairs, and I’m now on the hunt for a beautiful rug and the right light fixture. Wish me luck… I’ll keep sharing as I go!
