You saw glimpses of the dining room when I revealed the living room, so I thought I'd give you a better look at it. We renovated the dining room back in 2007 and have made some minor changes since then. It looked like this when we bought the house - yes, another 1980's wallpaper & pink carpet special!
wheat coloured silk curtains felt boring so I switched them out for these Ikat-inspired curtains from West Elm instead. Love them, especially with the cream leather bench we have beneath the window.
The bench is great for extra seating. For now, I've taken out the leaf from my dining table to make it round. It gives us more circulation space and makes the small room feel a bit bigger. Unfortunately, the double pendant light looks a bit oversized with the round table.
And here in the corner is the rad box HandyMan made. I tend to use it as a sideboard during parties, putting cutlery and cups or dishes atop it. I have another little vignette there now. The silver trophy is one of my favourite recent purchases. Its from The Arthur Co.
And that's the dining room!
