It's Friday so that means we are going on home tours again! Today we'll be looking at dining rooms. I am a little embarrassed to show you my dining room but also excited to just keep it real for you! So here we go...
This is the view as you walk into my home and turn right. This room is actually in the middle of a project so the walls are mostly bare. The only reason you see that one print over in the corner is because DH was helping me clean last weekend and decided to give a try at decorating. There was already a nail there so he put the picture to get it out of the way.
I love the hutch. I used to stock it full of my boring white china and keep all these beautiful products in storage but decided it would be better to put away the china and display these beautiful pieces. I like storage to be beautiful and functional. These are the items I use for entertaining and it is so much nicer to grab them out of here instead of storage. And I love the pop of color it adds to the room!
This is one of two floor to ceiling windows in the room. This room is opposite the living room and looks out over the front yard. These windows are bare for now but will soon have window treatments!
We just finished the family room project and this room is next on the big project agenda. I started adding this wall design a few months back but the project stalled when DH and I had design conflicts. These are put on with wall mud and are a raised design. Don't you think they will be gorgeous when completed?
DH wants this room painted orange and I'm not sure if I can go there. I want it painted blue as that is my new addiction. I am trying to compromise with orange wall paint and silk draperies with orange and blue to tie it all together. But I am just not convinced we are going to be able to go there.
I would love your opinion - what do you think about an orange dining room? The other colors downstairs are chocolate brown (foyer), a golden wheat color (living room and den) and green (kitchen).
