Spring Home Tour: Dining Room

back at it today with a deeper look at our dining room. this room literally took a year - no wait, more - to complete. here's a before and wow all of that color was pretty but i realized i can't live with it. (scroll to the bottom to shop this entire post!)

i wanted a much quieter, calmer vibe and that's what i think i got!

it all started with the art and some white paint. the artwork is thom filicia for soicher marin and is 55" square so it makes a statement.

for my birthday last year my parents gave me the rug (well, money for it 😉) and that really set things into motion. i got the table from restoration hardware on clearance and then pulled the trigger on my most favorite chairs. total splurge but they make me SO happy.

i moved the pendant light from the kitchen table to this room when we did the big improvement project. it's a little small and one day i'll probably replace it but i actually like it. i also wanted sconces on either side of the art but didn't want to deal with getting an electrician and wiring so i found these beauties from wisteria. they're large and at first i wasn't totally 100% but as a friend said, they're unique and that makes them cool. and i have to agree!

the drapery was the last piece to fall into place. i first wanted white linen but then decided that was too boring. my friends can attest to the fact that i went through at least 10 ideas before i landed back on white linen. should have stuck with my gut! custom drapery is so expensive but worth it. the workmanship is so good on these.

the curtain rods and rings are from crate & barrel and i love how simple they are. this style of pleat is called euro or french or three finger (or a myriad of other names!) if you want to have some custom drapes made. and the tip that you've probably heard before - hang 'em high and wide. don't cover the window!

so that's it! thanks so much for the support, i've really appreciated it!
