I know… I know… I left you hanging last week with the new dining room changes I made. That beautiful paint color has kind of changed everything! I’m beyond in love with the new color… we have moody dining room shelves now, and they’re awesome! I’m still not entirely set on how they’re styled, and they’re guaranteed to change with time, but I did adjust how I displayed the items on the shelving.
I have a lot of thoughts on our dining room… changes I’d like to make, a slight functionality change and the overall feeling in the room, but deciding on how I want to move forward with everything is a little ways off. In the mean time, it’s still functioning just like before, except now it’s way more dramatic. Everything pops, the display feels fresh and the room while the same, most definitely isn’t.
It’s basically like contrast heaven in here.
Our white dishes pop, glass pitchers look great and even my black lanterns stand out!
The paint color is easily one of my favorites. Having lived with it for a little while now, it’s the perfect color for the dining room, and probably several other rooms too! Depending on the lighting, it looks dark green, black or gray. Love it!
I’m working on gathering up a few new items for those shelves, and I’d love to go a little more “library meets dining room” vibe. I can see it all in my head, now it’s just collecting everything to make it happen…
In the mean time, it’s lovely and we’re making progress! Can’t be sad about that! And just in case you’re wondering about item sources, you can shop the room below:
