My dining room is more of a dining area. It’s an extension of my kitchen and is a small space. So I really wanted to make it appear larger. Previously, I thought a dark accent wall would do the trick. Boy, was a I wrong! The new space seems twice as large as before thanks to an all-white color palette.
Before & After
Instead of dark charcoal, I brought the wallpaper from bathrooms into the dining area. Like the bedrooms, my designer, Jean Luxe, came up with the idea to frame the existing mirrors to make them look more elevated.
I stuck with a round shape for my dining table. The before and after are actually both from Room & Board. But I loved the clean, modern vibe of my new white marble table. I used acrylic chairs to open up the space more then added fuzzy pillows to give guests a little padding when they sat.
For artwork, I turned to my friend Jessica Durrant to create a custom illustration. I’ve been obsessed with her watercolors for years and was so excited with the painting she came up with. I sent it to Framebridge with my other art pieces for a clean white frame.
For the dishes, I made it easy with The Complete Eat Bundle by Snowe. It had everything I needed to set and serve and the clean white design went with my space. Since marble can be a little tough to clean, I looked for some metallic placemats. I’ll share updates soon!
