one room challenge: modern dining room

I decided to participate in the One Room Challenge event -- have you heard of it? Every April and October design bloggers take the challenge to transform a room in their home in six weeks. While our living room is probably the most dramatic makeover in our house (you can see my decorating ideas here) I have big plans for our dining room too! Here is a photo of the space when we purchased our house and during the construction process of removing the carpeting before we installed the new hardwood floors:
The first things that needed to go was the columns (they weren't load bearing so it was easy to get rid of them), the outdated crystal chandelier, and the carpeting! Here are my decorating ideas for the space:


Paint + Floors: Benjamin Moore Hale Navy HC-154 on top and white for the wainscotting and trim. Install new hardwood floors with a 50/50 mix of Jacobean + Ebony Minwax stain.

Artwork: Minted print Looking Over Montmartre paired with two of our photos from trips from Italy in white Pottery Barn Frames.
 I'll be back next week to share my ideas for tabletop decor.

  2. I can't wait to see how you transform the space! That navy is so great. I was eyeing that faux fiddle leaf fig too...I am a hazard to living plants but I love the look so much.
