Hey Guys! Are you ready to see the plan for the formal dining room? I’m calling it the Eclectic Modern Formal Dining Room Design but I’m not really sure if that fits. Let’s just say it does and move forward. =)
But, before I show it to you… let me just remind you what each week of the One Room Challenge will look like.
Wednesday, Oct 5th (week 1) – Introduce your space, and tell us your plan.
Wednesday, Oct 12th (week 2) – Show us your progress. What have you accomplished? (THIS WEEK)
Wednesday, Oct 19th (week 3) – Have you encountered any setbacks? Any happy accidents?
Wednesday, Oct 26th (week 4) – How’s it going? Week 4 is the hardest!
Wednesday, Nov 2nd (week 5) – Did you revise your plan? Hang in there, you can do it.
Wednesday, Nov 9th (week 6) – The Finale – It’s all about the pictures.
The goal of the space is to get it to play well with the kitchen. I’m not going crazy with anything in there but I do want to have some fun. So, here’s my plan.
Can you see that going with our kitchen? I want to bring some black touches in but not go overboard because our eat-in kitchen is dark navy/charcoal.
I think finding the balance between dark/light and pattern/no-pattern will be key. I’ve made some purchases for the space yet I’m having some major problems with others (like the table). I was originally going to refinish the table that we had in there. I think I’ve decided to just nix that idea. The table size is ok but I don’t love the lines of it. The style just is off. After shopping for another table, I’ve come to the realization that most of what I love I can’t afford or can’t get within the time frame that I need it by. So, I’m not sure what I’m going to do here. I’m keeping my eyes open but we will see what plays out.
Also, I totally can’t decide between those two lights in the design board or whether to nix both of them and just keep the chandelier that is still in our dining room.
Progress this week was mainly finalizing what the design board was going to be and making a few purchases. Next week though, I should have some actual progress to show you. Yay!
Oh, and feel free to shop the look.
