Welcome back to The Willow House! For my dining room remodel, we opened the dining room and kitchen into one large l-shaped room by removing the walls of three smaller spaces. If you have not seen the kitchen tour, the video shows how this looked before the demo. As a result, the three rooms are now one beautiful, usable space that easily flows from the dining room into the open kitchen.
When picking furniture and accessories for my dining room remodel, I chose mid-century wood pieces to coordinate with the bar stools at the peninsula and to infuse the space with the warm walnut color. I then chose classic grey-blue chairs to pick up the cabinet colors and painted one of the walls a pale pink to ground the room and add warmth.
Once I had the major pieces in place, it was time to think about how to decorate the space. I feel that the two things that can really finish a room’s look are green plants, paper or real, and curated artwork that plays between both spaces.
While I do have some DIY art in my home, my go-to for beautifully curated art is Minted. They offer limited edition fine art that is fresh and current from their global community of 15,000 independent artists. And I love to support artists as much as possible! In addition I have grown to love their luxe mounting and frame options: All prints are available as full-bleed, float mounted, or matted, finished with your choice of 17 exclusively designed frames.
For this room, I picked two of their new framed canvas options. Each piece of canvas is hand-stretched and framed in 6 unique framing options. I love working with Minted because I can customize the size of each piece to fit the space since their sizes range from 5″x7″ to 44″x60″.
I started with my focal piece of a vintage-style landscape on a canvas with a dark wood frame, then combined that piece with a mixture of modern shapes, script, and botanical pieces throughout the dining room and kitchen. One of the bonuses of having open shelving in the kitchen that wraps into the dining room space is the opportunity to style the pretty dishes with plants and framed art that bring a cohesive look into the adjoining rooms.
Here are the pieces I picked for my dining room remodel.
