Dining Room Inspiration Board


I mentioned in my Living Room Reveal that I'm currently working on decorating the master bedroom that has been freshly painted while simultaneously painting and decorating the dining room. The dining room really has my focus though because a goal of mine this year is to host more dinners and get-togethers with our friends and family. Right now I really don't feel like I have a welcoming space to do so.

Because I tend to get a little scatter-brained when I dabble in too many areas at once I wanted to reign it in and really give myself a focus board for our dining room so I can start searching for the perfect pieces to complete it. 

We already have the most gorgeous farm table that I built with my dad and that has really been my inspiration to work around for the rest of the room. The room was a hideous pumpkin orange before (just wait until you see the before photos) so I have lightened it up with a fresh coat of paint in a neutral white/gray color and I plan on going with a farmhouse/french and modern feel. Does that make sense? It sounds like I'm combining too many themes, but I really see it coming together smoothly. I want woods, whites, greenery and small pops of color in the blue china (currently searching for affordable pieces) and other decor in the room. But overall, neutral of course.

I want to create a space that I am proud to host gatherings in and that's just what I'm going to do!

I am by no means a decorator, but I have to say I am really enjoying the process of making our house our home and putting both of our personalities into it.

What do you think?

  1. Love it! So gorgeous!! Isn't finding light fixtures the most difficult thing? I've been looking for one for our kitchen that I like for MONTHS!!

  2. I'm seriously amazed at just how similar our home decorating styles are - I wish we lived closer so we could help each other out since we both are going through the same process! I can't wait to see how everything turns out! :) P.S. - my dad is building our dining room table, too.

  3. I love it and I am glad you are enjoying the process because I know you had some anxiety!

  4. I seriously love everything! I can't wait to have a grand dining room one day!
