dining room update: colour detour
We finally painted the dining room + kitchen this weekend! You may recall my big plans to paint things a dark, deep blue. After trying out a patchwork of colours on top of the recent dark green, things took a dramatic turn ... for the brighter.
Yep, it's WHITE.
I decided to go for white after some very, very deep reflection, a.k.a., browsing my pins. I have to admit I've been having some bright white envy after seeing the homes of Emily Henderson and fellow Eichler owner Traci Yau of 45wall design. And I rather enjoy treating my home as a sort of lab for design experiments! I'm starting to scheme about painting out all of our dark brown beams and brightening the ceilings, which are currently really off-white.
Anyway, back to the space itself: To keep things light, I flipped the Nate Berkus rug to its reverse side. The credenza is now off to the side, just to mix things up a bit, and the art is obviously a bit scattered for now. I'm pretty keen on getting a huge art piece for the white wall. I'm in love with the work of Samantha French - her large-scale underwater portraits are stunning, but I might let my eye wander a bit first. Suggestions for big, abstract-ish art are welcomed!
I'll update on the kitchen and breakfast nook once I've had some time to style them a bit more. In the meantime, I'd love to hear what you all think.
