I finally have a plan for my dining room. Sometimes I really just have to sit on a decision for a while and let all of my thoughts simmer, until inspiration strikes and I know what I want to do. I'm really trying with this re-do to think everything through, and then think some more, so I am 100% happy with it when I'm finished. I don't want to be making changes in a year (or 6 months!).
A few inspiration photos:
My all time favorite that I've carried around ripped out of BH&G:
In the following photos, the use of different end chairs,
side chairs, and big chunky rustic tables caught my eye.
China Cabinet: I love the older styles but will update with GREEN...my color!
The Houndstooth Drapery! Yes, I got design inspiration from Tori Spelling. She actually has a really good website with lots of great ideas and design advice.
So, while thinking about all of that inspiration and putting it together with the pieces
I already have, here's a little design board that I put together.
I'm not sure what type of artwork I'm going to use on my one full wall in the dining room yet. I've already done a large botanical gallery wall in the kitchen, and as much as I love botanicals, I think more in the dining room would be overload. Looking for options here.
I know my style is all over the map, and there's no way I could ever attempt to define it. I just choose what I like and throw it all together! So what do you think? Any other bright ideas you think I should consider before I get any further down the road?
