Eclectic Dining Room
A few months ago I showed off our newly painted dining room after finally sourcing out the best black paint and today, I'm ready to share the (almost) finished space! When we first moved into our home and were decorating our dining area I had always kept in mind a dark floral wallpaper for the space. However, with the price of the wallpaper and install we decided to put those plans on hold and pain the dining room a deep matte black instead for the same dramatic effect.
Now that we've had this space painted black for a while we've been able to style this area and it's almost done! I'm absolutely loving the color we chose and am really happy with the Benjamin Moore Aura paint we used. Because the black we chose is such a dramatic contrast to the Chantilly Lace color everywhere else, we wanted to add a bit of warmth and color to that area.
We already had pops of brass with the light fixture, the round brass mirror and bar cart but through the use of a gorgeous colorful area rug and a quirky print from Gooseberry Prints we were able to add a bit more personality to this room. I love how this Loloi area rug adds a ton of great texture and pops of color that really warm up the black paint color.
I also fell in LOVE with this Dobbin print from Gooseberry Studios and knew this cute little dude needed a home at our place. I especially love Gooseberry Studios as Laura shoots mainly rescued animals for her print series so every time I look at our print it makes me smile and warms my heart at the same time. Cheesy much? Maybe, but also totally true.
I'm loving how this space has turned out and all that's missing are a few added accessories and some plans to add decorative trim to the curtains (oh, and raise the rod another 4" or so since James hung the curtains before checking with me on the rod height - oops!). What do you guys think of the new eclectic vibe to this room? (Check it out in all of it's chantilly lace glory here)
