Alex and I have lived in our home for over a year now and I’ve finally finished decorating the dining room complete with new paint and wall decor.
We started with two white walls and one already painted wall. I kept the green/gray speckled wall and went with a dark teal in Peacock Plume for the other two walls.
It was listed as a historic color and I thought my history buff husband would appreciate the nod 🙂 . It turned out awesome and I was drawn to these peacock pillows from One Kings Lane to add the subtle theme.
I love the lighthearted yet grown up feel they have.
Then, of course, I needed some actual art. Here are three pieces from local artist, Elizabeth Fraser of Fraser Art Studio.
These pieces are especially important to me because they are of where I had my second date with my husband, where we got married, and our first Portland 4th of July together.
And in this corner…we have a cute little cabinet with a few samples of my maternal grandmother’s china. We didn’t have room to display the whole set- it’s probably safer this way. Especially since this lovely dining room becomes our pub on some weekend nights.
And finally, the farmer’s table. I got this and the cabinet from Cherished Possessions in South Portland.
I love that place- I have several pieces from there and am always excited to see what they have. It should be called the danger zone- except that they are actually reasonably priced so it’s not too dangerous for the bottom line. The benches were a lucky find at Home Goods- another favorite!
I’m very pleased with the results- now to test ‘er out! Just in time for the holidays!
Walter is happy to have access to this room again too 🙂
