Shalia’s Dining Room Update

Sharing is caring!

I am a firm believer that a little bit of paint goes a long, long way! My most recent dining room update was done in a day using leftover paint and rearranging the space. Decorating a room is only the beginning of a space coming to life. The memories that are made here and the capturing of them are what drives my design aesthetic. For me, it is about creating a home that comforts, inspires, and welcomes the people who enter it.

Dining Room Update with Decor & Paint

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quote

My style is constantly evolving and I’m always updating and rearranging our indoor and outdoor spaces. I like using a neutral palette. Most of the house is painted Sherwin Williams Eider White. I like to add interest and texture through accessories, or finishes.

Sandi and I are always swapping out rugs for a new look. As you can see, I’ve done this several times in my own dining room already!

This space started out with more of a modern farmhouse vibe but has transitioned to a more eclectic, bohemian style. I definitely feel like my personal style leans towards being a little more modern and clean. Well, as clean as I can get living in the country!

This room started to transform when I changed out the sputnik style light for this more traditional piece. I took a cue from the black in the light and moved in black accents to give the room a cohesive look.

I softened the space by including natural wood elements like my chairs and sideboard. My accessories balance the space out with hard and soft elements.

Although I am definitely not prone to using a lot of color in my home, I stepped outside of my comfort zone for my latest dining room update. I broke-up the floor to ceiling white by painting my traditional white wainscotting Sherwin Williams March Wind. While I love the color, I feel it was not the right tone for this room.Shaila's Dining Room

Next, I painted the wainscotting Sherwin Williams Thunderous, only to realize that wasn’t the right color either! I finally settled on Sherwin Williams Alabaster. I had to prime to cover over it because it was so dark.Shaila's Dining Room

Social distancing and playing with different paint colors has kept my hands busy, but finding the right color with what I have at home has proven to be a challenge! Hopefully, it will all come together again soon, and we can’t wait to host our first gathering in my updated space!
