The Dining Room

Another space almost complete! Are you seeing a trend of a whole lot of almost there posts? Creating a home takes time to say the least, especially when I am trying to be intentional with every single piece we bring in rather than just filling it with place holders. We had six of these West Elm chairs and I dreamt of the day we could actually fit them around a table. Our old farmhouse table, which I still love, was just too small for our new dining room. We host a lot and I know we will still be pulling in extra chairs, but with our new table we can fit even more people. A huge win in our book. When searching for a table this last year plus I knew I wanted to keep the wood light and have it be more on the modern side to fit the architecture of our home better. I also did not want it to be too modern in case we did move one day and we went with another style home as our neighborhood has more cottages and bungalows to choose from. This table fit the bill perfectly! It balance modern and classic beautifully. The finish may be the most gorgeous thing ever especially paired with the apron detail. I bought the table on Rejuvenations premier day that they host a couple of times a year. After seeing the table in person I feel like I got a steal! I also added the fun wooden pot from our local Sugar Boo store and topped it with a foxtail fern. I did have another plant there and due to the fact the finish is no longer on the hardwood floors it left a horrid ring. One day we will have them refinished, but for now I will just hide my mistake with this lovely wooden chunk. What's left in this space? Not much, but the wall to the left in the first image is begging for an amazing piece of art. I am just not sure what I am looking for. Maybe another photo from our travels, an abstract, or something else completely? For now I will just sit and wait until the piece crosses my path.
