We are finally getting around to adding some furniture to our dining room. When we moved into this house, I said I was fine with empty rooms until we really decided what we wanted and could afford something that would last a while. Well, I’ve come to realize that was a lie. I hate the empty rooms. They feel confused and make me even more stressed about the messes that grow in them so, as I’ve done with all the other rooms in the house thus far, I made a mood board for inspiration and am ready to pull the trigger on almost all the items. Here’s what I’m thinking and my dining room mood board that has a moody neutral feel.
THE PLAN FOR THE DINING ROOM
First, I wanted to say that I’m doing all I can to make this house have a pretty great flow. Aside from the girls’ rooms, which I’m still trying to tie into the feel of the home with relative colors, most of this house will be moody grays, creams, tans, and blacks. With the gray floors, it’s hard to find what works, but I honestly think I’m getting there.
And here’s the same dining room mood board with my 2nd table choice:
I’m beginning to wonder how it’ll all turn out… My favorite chairs are not available until September and my initial table pick was going to cost $250 to ship… so what do you think I’ll end up with?
The pieces have started to come in though and I can’t wait to share the final product! I hope I love it!
I can’t wait for this room to come together. Pretty sure I’d make my old friend Anissa proud with this one and maybe I’ll even have her come style it for me when I’m done getting most of the big pieces. The only thing I can’t figure out yet without having the big pieces in the room is will I have room for a piano to use as a sideboard or will there be room for both? Not sure.
While I’d love to add a piano in here, I’m not really sure it’ll fit and I don’t want the room to feel crowded. If I did have room though, I’m wondering… which color would I go with? A black? Or A blonde? Or painted?! I don’t know…
All this moving and needing new furniture has made me even more indecisive than usual.
