Dining Room

I've been wanting to share photos of our house since we've finished it. It's taken me a while to get around to it but I finally took the time to take some shots of the rooms and every week I'm planning to share the spaces with you guys! We'll start with the dining room because it's one of my favorite rooms!
This is the same dining room table we had at our previous house. We added a few new pieces to our dining room collection to fill in our space a little more. I am so pleased with how it all turned out. I really love just staring at the space. There's a lot to look at and it feels really warm and inviting to me which was the goal for our entire house. Warm, cozy, comfortable.
We worked with Bassett on the entire design of our home so everything you see in these photos is from there. The only thing I did was find all of the vintage books. Marla, our designer, loves decorating with them. So she sent me on a mission to the flea market to find about one hundred of the coolest vintage books I could find. Honestly, it was so fun. I stumbled across some books that were over 100 years old. And we really did put them everywhere. The main living spaces, the boys rooms, bathrooms, the playroom. Everywhere. They really do add so much character to a space. I don't know why I've never thought to decorate with them before.
We had our window treatments in our previous dining room as well. However, the ceilings here are taller so the panels were too short. The same lady who made our drapes previously simply added some length to them, in a different fabric, so we could reuse them. I was nervous that it was going to look odd and obvious that we added length but I honestly think I like them even better now. Marla chose a really great coordinating fabric and they work perfect!
So there she is. Our dining room. I really love how everything pulled together. This is the first room you see when you walk in our house so I really wanted to have a moment in this space. Marla did a great job and I know we'll enjoy this space for years and years to come.
