Dining Area Design Update

Hello, Hope you all have been doing well? It is been a while since I posted here. Life has been a bit busy lately. Today I will be sharing my dining area design update. I recently started a new job, and we are doing homeschool, and have family visiting. My new job is a source to give thanks to the highest. I have been actively pursuing this new role off and on for the past two years. So it is such a blessing to not only get to interview for the job. An offer with a great package during a pandemic is a cause for thanksgiving.

Now to the purpose of this post, My dining area/ breakfast nook update. Our old dining room furniture was on its last legs. The skin was peeling off and it was embarrassing hosting guests with chairs in such a dire state. I was determined to take my time in finding something timeless and that will withstand my boy’s rambunctiousness. My fellow boy moms will understand why this is a major requirement.

The design changes started with repainting our walls to Sherwin Williams London fog. Prior to this, we had a dark shade of blue on the walls, which was just too dark for the room. Then I found this beautiful light fixture, which was the inspiration for the design of the room. The sputnik 8 bulb with brass detail makes such a stunning statement. I wanted continuity in design, the brass details in the center table in the living room, lights, barstools to create a cohesive detail.

The chair design was something myself and my husband went back and forth on for a while. Choosing a design we both liked, then finding a color that is cohesive with our open layout. After a bit of back and forth we chose this beautiful design with brass legs and brass handles on the back. The velvet is easy to clean, which is a great detail with little kids. For stains i dampen a washrag with a little fabric softener and the stains come right off.
