We have been working on this dining room transformation for several months, so I am so excited to share these photos with you guys! I partnered with Pottery Barn to create this moody and romantic space that I hope will create memories and spark candlelit conversations for many years to come.
Originally the walls were painted navy blue and I loved how the darkness worked for the space. The bottom half of the walls are wainscoting. I thought a moody floral wallpaper on the top half of the walls would have a nice masculine/feminine balance.
For me, the showstopper in the room is this gorgeous Scarlett Crystal Chandelier. When it was hung, it instantly elevated the entire room.
When looking for pieces for this room, I instantly fell in love with this Avondale Cabinet Buffet and then chose all of the other pieces around it. It was delivered to our house and wow. It was even more beautiful in person – so well made and sturdy. Both Christian and I love it! From there we chose this dark wood Banks Table (comes in two sizes) and Faith Display Cabinet.
I knew I wanted a contrast between the table and chairs. But I was still a little nervous to go with white. I thought they would look beautiful, but I didn’t want to be the person fearing guests would spill on upholstered furniture. After speaking with one of Pottery Barn’s designers from their free design service, I felt like if we went with Sunbrella fabric we could have the best of both. Watch this demonstration on Sunbrella. It’s kind of mind blowing!
The wallpaper finished being installed while we were in the hospital with Hudson (this train never stops moving, people!), and everything really came together. I love that this is one of the first rooms you see when you walk through our front door. It’s dreamy!
