It's ridiculous to be thinking of the dining room when we're still not finished the living room and master bedroom but I just can't help myself. It's imagining the finished rooms that keeps us motivated, so here goes:
With a rustic dining room table and cowhide rug, it would be easy for our dining room to look too rustic. For this reason, I thought it would be nice to add some glamour. I love this inspiration picture from House to Home UK (above) and the geometric jewel toned walls would work well with the colour scheme in the living room.
Here's a picture of our current dining room to remind you what we're working with.
As you can see, we've been trying to choose the right shade of green for the space. I think the problem is that we're looking at warm greens and we need a cooler green (with more blue) to work with the living room.
Emerald green is trendy right now since it's Pantone's colour of 2013 but I also happen to love it! I love the honeycomb patterned wallpaper but I'm pretty intimidated by wallpaper, (I always think of it as being more permanent than paint.) so I'm going to try to recreate the effect with a stencil like this one:
Of course, this won't happen for a while and we have some duct covering and door installing ahead of us but it's fun to imagine the finished product...
