So I'm all tapped out of living room inspiration, a special thank you to everyone who commented and shared their ideas, and opinions. One of my favorite parts about blogging is all of the second and third opinions. I am a researcher at heart and love gathering all my information and opinions, Lees not so into "the process" he prefers I narrow it way down (2 choices or less haha) so all the comments are very much appreciated.
Here's what we've got going for the dining room. Now I'm not sure if you remember our post about our new dining table you know the one where we got a smok'in deal on a harvest table. The one where we bought a new dining table even though we knew we were moving, and I declared that I didn't want to live in any house that my new harvest table wouldn't fit in.
I guess you know where this is going.
Our lovely harvest table does not fit into our new dining room :( Somehow even as I was typing that I knew I was going to jinx myself).
So as you can see from my terrible picture, it's a small space for a dining room. At the end of the photo you can see an opened door, that's the door to the mudroom/laundry room and it has to clear the table.
So the plan is to go in a completely different direction. Our new house is a little more formal then our current house so we are hoping to reflect that in our decor.
Our dining room is beside the kitchen and mudroom/laundry room and in order for the mudroom/laundry room door to clear the table we need to have a round or square table. We chose round! Something like this one from pottery barn although not exactly like this one as we don't have that kind on money to spend on a dining table :)
We haven't made a decision about chairs yet but I'm thinking something in fabric, but I'm not ruling out wood chairs just yet :)
Maybe a chair like this although I don't like the skirt all the way to the ground
We'll also need bar stools: Maybe something like this:
Here's the current chandelier: kinda ick!
A couple of chandelier options, I'm loving the coach style one, but we are also strongly considering a simple shade on a rod (not that the second picture is simple, but that's the general idea but with a simple shade on the end :)
So there's a couple of dining room choices, Please let me know what you're thinking, I have been loving the feedback!!
Be back tomorrow with some more options, and if anyone in the greater Vancouver area needs a harvest table and three chairs we know where you can get one for a good deal :) hehe
