I have been excited to share my updated dining room decor with you, so much so that I will have to do it in two parts. The open concept room that is in the heart of the large space has been coming together piece by piece in the last few months and is now ready to do a little show-and-tell.
Spring is the perfect time to rethink a home decor color palette, a simple refresh and to make a few updates to existing pieces. One of the best ways to update a look is to bring in a fresh new color and a Spring favorite of mine is coral. You will see coral sprinkled here throughout my dining room and again in my updated living room that I will be sharing in a few weeks.
The center of the dining room is the table and I picked this gorgeous long wood table that will easily seat 8 and fits the dining room space perfectly. Details of the table in the next post. The perfect table needs the perfect chairs, right? I love to mix and match my chairs so I decided to start with updating my beloved vintage Chippendale chairs that I found on Craigslist a few years ago. When I bought them for next to nothing, they had been spray painted a dark brown. Wanting to make my dining room as bright and light as possible, I decided to change them back to their original color, and since they are metal I sent them to get a professional powder coat in an egg shell white. Once the chairs were painted, I updated the seat cushions with a crisp and classic grey and white striped linen fabric. You can find a similar, new Chippendale chair here on Wayfair. I just adore these chairs.
I then found these two Baxton Halifax armchairs to bookend my dining room table and a similar upholstered bench for the bay window at Wayfair. Both of these styles are a natural linen color and tufted. . . two of my favorite things. The bench is now a sunny window seat and has quickly become a favorite spot for both my dog Enzo and my kitty Cleo.
Take a look at all angles of the room in the photos below and see how it mixes with both the style of the living room and the kitchen seamlessly. In Thursday’s post I will go into details and sources so make sure and come back for that. . . once you have had a chance to leisurely stroll through this sunny, newly refreshed room. Enjoy! ~ Lia
