Good Morning! To kick off Spring this week, I have the perfect upbeat dining room refresh to share with you! I like to call it a refresh when clients want to keep a lot of their main pieces in the space, but ask for a little help with rugs, window treatments, art and decorative accents. This space is exactly that, and now has a much more inviting and brighter feel to it. A lot of people usually don’t tend to their formal dining rooms as much as their regularly used spaces, but when you have a room that is first seen when coming into your home I really think it sets the tone for your whole house. You might not use it as much, but you want it to look inviting and nicely put together.
Here are the before pictures.
And the After Pictures!
I knew I wanted to put two side by side prints on this wall. It’s a good size wall so I wanted to fill out the space. As I told my client, it may take some time to find the pieces I envisioned for it and she was very patient. Once I found them, I knew they were it.
Before there was a very oversized hutch here so I really wanted to much something much smaller in its place. Bar carts are the perfect accents for any dining room. You can dress them up according to holidays or parties you are having. They are also convenient to hold beverages while you are hosting guests so they don’t have to travel far to get another cocktail. Priorities people!!!
This rug is one of my favorite finds ever. It has the perfect blue colors in it and I used this rug to base the room around.
I love theses lamps! They are so pretty in person and the candle holders with it make for the perfect accents for this large buffet.
Would you believe me if I told you those are artificial flowers? I tell a lot of people that you don’t always need to have real flowers. If you are hosting a party then absolutely yes, I recommend fresh flowers. In this case, these are perfect to complete the room and tie it all together. They can stay up as long as needed and can be switched out at anytime.
I hope you enjoyed this little refresh as much as I do. Comment below if you have any questions, I’ll be sure to get to them!
