Even though Halloween has yet to pass, I'm kicking it in high gear to "finish" our dining room. I've already started painting - next up is a new light fixture and window treatments.
I've posted this image before, but here is our dining room:
It's a very traditional space (with the detailed moldings), so I want to keep the design somewhat traditional, but still fun. I've pulled together a very simple design board to give you a sneak peek into my plans for the room.
[ fabric is from Schumacher, chandelier is from Robert Abbey, console is from Overstock ]
I've decided not to reupholster the chairs before the Holidays. I haven't decided which fabric to upholster them in, so I don't want to do it until I am absolutely sure. I'm hoping a good steam clean will make them look new(er).
I plan to create faux roman shades because: it will save money on yardage (that fabric is EXPENSIVE!!) and because the room is very private so the shades will be purely decorative. Something similar to Darby's faux roman, but inside mount. How am I going to do this? I have no idea. I think I'll save that project for when my mother in law gets here! :)
Considering the holidays will be here before we know it, I'll be sharing an "after" fairly soon!
Speaking of dining rooms... I love table Eddie did at a recent event in Philly:
