Our main level is open concept. You've seen bits and pieces of our new kitchen, but our dining/living areas are going to fresh and new. Most of our old furniture doesn't work in the new place, so we're repurposing and slowly buying new pieces.
Here's the problem. I am absolutely my own worst client. I know every designer says it, but its true. With a client, I am always decisive, knowing exactly what my first choice is. With myself, its an entirely different ballgame. So today I wanted to share some of the options I'm considering for the dining room. Want to see how far I got?
chairs (love the metal frame on these)::: dining table (ours was given to us, but it has very similar lines and stain) :::
And then I froze. This is no joke. What fabric do I want the chairs in? What light fixture works with what we have in our kitchen?
So instead, I'll share some dining rooms I love, and you guys can help me dissect whats so great about them (keep in mind, with the open concept floorplan, you can't be quite as daring because it has to work with the kitchen/family room)
Do I take the feminine Chinoiserie print that's on the walls and put it on the chairs?
Or do I do a bold solid color that can be tied in elsewhere?
Or do I throw it all out the window, and do some really funky stuff?
HELP. What is your favorite dining room and why?
