The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
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:

Join me as I share several easy to implement ideas that will give your home a breath of fresh air and leave you feeling excited about the changes you see by the end of the week!
Soooooo nice, just like I knew it would be!!! You had fun playing. A little greenery and a few books here and there and ta da! DONE! I love it!
I love it. I go for a moody classic with a little boho, I love how you’re doing it with the farmhouse look.
love the shelves, they are looking great.
I have a fear of dark colors and have never been so bold. This looks wonderful and the white dishes really pop. I too love white dishes. I recognize my pattern, Heritage by Pfaltzgraff. Did you really find those at a thrift store? I am so jealous!!
Love it!!! Is this the same color you used in your bathroom awhile ago? Will you post that space too? Always love the way you pull things together 🙂
Thanks so much! This color is different from our bathroom shelving project. I used a true black in there, Onyx by Benjamin Moore, and this is Vintage Frame by Valspar. I was just thinking the other day that I needed to share that space again with the shelving finished! I’ll work on that! 🙂
I just got a tiered galvanized thingy like you used to have on your table. Exactly like yours. Sad to see it gone. But, this is why I am slowing way down on blog reading. It’s too hard to keep up with all the changes! I like your shelves a lot, by the way. Good job!
Thank you! And not to worry, you’ll see my galvanized tray make another appearance somewhere in the house, if not in the dining room! I like switching things up! 🙂
The wall looks amazing, love the color you picked! Your pottery and treasures just pop off the wall now.
Oh yes! Love the wall color! I’ve always been a Dan of darker on the walls just not usually brave enough to do it! Beautiful!
Wow, so beautiful! The dark paint color adds so much drama. Love it.
