I've been waiting a long time to write this post. I'm so happy to finally say that my dining room is finally, officially redecorated and in operable, non-embarrassing shape. Hip hip hooray!
You may recall that I've been looking into dining room inspiration for a loooong time. (See here, here and here.) It took me some discipline and an hour-long design session with Shannon Darrough to get a plan for this room. She helped approve and reject my ideas until we had a realistic plan. My ultimate overall scheme was eventually devised from this Palmer Weiss designed dining room...

Here are shots of the room pre-redecorate, just to humiliate myself a little and give you a sense of how much has changed.
(You may not be able to tell but there four different paint colors on the walls...seriously...the result of indecision and lack of clarity.)
My favorite part has got to be the freshly style sideboard. This little vignette makes me smile and, if you follow me on Instagram, you know I photograph it to death. Sorry.
In case you're wondering, here's what's new:
Paint colors- Benjamin Moore Carrington Beige, HC-93 (above chair rail), and Bavarian Cream, OC-123 (below chair rail)
Perhaps there is still one more piece that needs to be added. And THEN the room will be officially done...
