Peek into my dining room

Would you like to peek into my dining room? It is still very much a work-in progress but this is what it looks like right now.

What I love most about this room is that it opens out to a deck overlooking our yard. The French doors and a window bring in tons of sunshine all day long and I really enjoy spending time here. There is also where I blog, style tablescapes, work on projects, eat meals, and of course, entertain.

I like keeping the color palette on the neutral side and playing around with colorful/ seasonal accessories.

Over the weekend, I found this armchair at my local good will store for under $40. Sturdy, comfy and in surprisingly good condition, all it needs is a facelift with new fabric, fill and paint. It makes a great head dining chair.

I simply love having cozy dining chairs and am glad this new find works so well as one. Am toying with a few fabric options to have it reupholstered in and possibly having it tufted like the other dining chairs. What do you think? For colors,  I am still a bit undecided. What would you suggest?

I found this tray at the thrift store, for like $5. Isnt it gorgeous?

  1. mon, you are too good to me. stripey..hmm now we are talking.
    have a great Easter my dear. xoxo

  2. Beautiful girl, beautiful room!

    I am looking forward to going shopping with you! You are sooo good, Manvi!

    How about a stripey chair? I look at those black candlesticks and I see black and white stripes as a contrast to the tufted ones.

    I am signing off for the week.

    Wishing you and Paul a Happy Easter! Any fun plans?
