In the past, I haven’t shown much of the process mid-design in my place because I think I’ve been a little embarrassed to reveal how often I change my mind and in turn, change the design. I experiment, I make holes, I move things around, I make mistakes, I edit, edit ,edit. (Case in point: My Bedroom.) Well the heck with embarrassment, today I’m just shooting from the hip. I make no promises to do anything, I’m just thinking out loud.
And I’m thinking about my dining area. So this is what I’ve got going on right now, but it is all changing.
I already hung my new chandelier. It’s the Edmund by Arteriors and I LURVES it.
It’s antiqued brass, glass, faceted and just stunning in person.
I need more storage, so I am hoping to switch out my wood buffet for a taller storage unit.
Love this guy, but its not good for all the random crap I have, so I want to move it upstairs.
I’m hoping to magically thrift upon a black Chinoiserie armoire like this…
If this piece could just walk into my life for a bargain I would be very happy.
I’ve been waiting on my mom’s old wood table to get refinished.
This is the only photo of it, but you get the deal…
Traditional, elegant, woody.
Since my table is traditional, I’m inclined to have more modern dining chairs.
I just don’t think I’m going to like my black mix n’ match bamboo chairs with the wood table.
Plus I have this console table and stools to think about with the mix.
There is a part of me that really wants to get these chairs because they are seriously cheap and a fun shape and color.
(Plus I could use them outside)
I’ve never used green in my home, so this would be a definite departure.
But the chairs are actually similar to the wood Asian pair I have in my adjacent seating area.
But can I commit to the green? I’m being very selective with color on the first floor. Every little bit needs to be special.
Maybe my chairs should just be comfortable and classic.
These are pretty well priced. 4 would be $680 including shipping.
Not offensive, but also not exciting. But not everything needs to be a statement piece, right?
I think what I need to do is search for inspiration rooms.
So perhaps I’ll do that and report back.
