Yesterday I introduced you to our new dining room table and today, I want to show you all the pieces we’ve selected for our dining room. We’re still deciding on paint and/or wallpaper to do above or below the chair rail. Do you have any tips on pairing paint with chair rails? Colors, top or bottom, etc..?
No 1. Brimfield Antique Show, July show :: No. 2 Martine Upholstered Side Chair, Restoration Hardware :: No. 3 Capiz Pendant, West Elm :: No. 4 Owstynn Beige Linen Bench, Overstock :: No. 5 Restored Telephone Table, Crate and Barrel (also listed here) :: No. 6 Madeleine Side Chair, Restoration Hardware :: No. 7 Pink ranunculus always make a gorgeous centerpiece :: No. 8 Numi candleholders, CB2
So, here it is! I tried to lay it out for you the way it will be set up. What do you think? There are a lot of different colors and looks-from modern sleek lines in the Owstynn beige linen banquette bench to the soft look of the vintage velvet indigo blue chairs to the French feel of the Madeleine chairs (can you tell me and Restoration Hardware sorta have a thing?!). Don’t forget the glam from the capiz shell chandelier (West Elm almost always has sales so keep your eyes out; you almost never have to pay full price there)! The mirror was an expensive but essential purchase at the Brimfield Antique Show that is sure to make a statement in any room and will certainly deliver that wow factor we are looking for. Be sure to check out CB2-Crate and Barrel’s lower budget home furnishings store. The Numi handblown candleholders are easy on the eyes and your pocket at only $4.95. And lets be honest, who can resist a beautiful floral centerpiece? You can easily make this with a mint julep cup or even create your own take on this with mason jars!
Because our dining room is a part of the kitchen (being open concept), we want to keep it cozy but still add that formal touch in the pieces we selected. How have we done so far?
