Now that we’ve finished most of the spaces in our home (though my spaces always seem to be ‘evolving’ so finished might be too final of a word), I wanted to share the few remaining rooms. One room that I have never given much attention, even though we do use it, is our dining room.
I didn’t really think I wanted or needed a formal dining room when we were looking at floorplans to build this house, but I am so glad that the plan we chose came with one. We do use it, especially for holidays and entertaining, though my kids also use it as a quiet place to do homework or sometimes even to eat. It’s right off our main hall so it’s a nice open room.
Shortly after we moved in I added these pretty grayish-blue curtains (they were a HomeGoods find) and really loved the color in the room. When I went looking for a paint color for this room, I wanted it to closely match the curtains for a monochromatic look.
The paint color I settled on (after sampling quite a few) was Gray Screen by Benjamin Moore. It does have more blue in it than I would prefer, I think the room looks more blue than gray most of the day but it’s still a pretty color. I like that both the white table and my grandmother’s antique chest pop against it.
We have had the chandelier for awhile but I admit that I absolutely love the sparkle. It’s a bit glam, even for me, but for a room that we use mostly for parties or holidays the sparkle seems appropriate. (sources linked at the end).
I’d still like to add more trim in here, probably some box moldings on the wall which wouldn’t be a hard DIY, and I someday would love to find an antique gold mirror to replace this affordable one.
Here is a list of the sources in the room, thanks for stopping by!
