My teal and lime dining room is ready for it’s big reveal! I cannot believe how far it has come since I created my dream dining room mood board. I completed the entire dining room project list and couldn’t be happier with the results.
I put the finishing touches on the room this weekend. The final touch in the room is a vintage mirror that I grew up with. It was from my childhood bedroom set, which was inherited. My parents no longer have the set, but they still had the mirror. It was the perfect amount of unique and curvy to break up all the squares going on with the board and batten and the family silhouette art. It amps up the romance already going on in the room.
Let’s take a big picture look at the completed room. For a room made up of cool colors, it has a warm inviting feel. The modern, eclectic look is truly personalized to represent us. It is amazing to be in a room that feels like you. I feel happy and inspired in this room. I cannot wait to entertain guests here.
A reveal would not be complete without a before and after comparison. It always amazes me how much bigger a space feels when it is fully furnished. The before was so drab and lifeless. The after is vibrant and draws you in.
Before I could call the room done, I had to finish hanging the art and styling the accessories. I know lots of people love to leave art leaning on a ledge, but I prefer art to be hung. I allowed a few accessories to sit on the ledge. I hung the silhouette art centered on the midline of the mirror. The mirror is centered on the table and chandelier. To create balance, since the mirror is off-centered on the long wall, I hung the three smaller canvases to the left of the mirror and the larger canvas by itself on the right side.
I made a few last minute changes to the dining room nook styling. I removed the large platter that really did not add any visual interest. I added this gorgeous bamboo bowl I found at Target for $20. A trio of smoke glass ornaments from my dining room accessories play session are nestled in the bowl.
Thank you for watching this room evolve. I am ready to move onto my next project…the foyer. The project list will be quite a bit shorter, but hopefully nonetheless inspiring. In the meantime, I will be back with a post detailing all the DIY projects in the dining room and the cost breakdown.
