Blue & White Dining Room Reveal

Blue & White Dining Room Reveal

Morning friends! I’m excited to have finally gotten it together and have photographed one of the three completed projects so far! I received an email from the owner of this home asking about my design/decorating services. We chatted a little via email, I came to her home and she hired me on the spot. It’s a sweet newly married couple who just moved into this home. The home is lovely and has so much potential so I was ready to take it on. The previous owner had the standard builder things, beige walls, oil rubbed light fixtures, etc. But, a little paint, some pretty home accessories and this home was well on its way to fabulous.

But before we start let me say, I of course lost the before! So, amuse me by imagining a single light hanging, maybe oil rubbed bronze, beige walls and an empty room. Ok are we ready now? Here we go!

First, most important was color and for some reason when I walked into this room, the first color that came to mind was blue. The room has so many windows that I felt it could handle a navy blue. So, we decided to go with Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy.

Next, I had visions of two pendants. I’ve loved these pendants for as long as I can remember.

Then we needed a rug and this one fit the bill to add a little fun to the space.

I love mirrors and lamps. This gold mirror was purchased before painting or anything started. I love the quatrefoil and the thickness of it.

These lamps were another love at first sight. I found them at Homegoods and was squealing all the way home because I could not have been more excited about them! I love a pair of lamps on a console, the symmetry makes me happy.

Luckily for me, my client had some great coastal art with an amazing navy blue in it. The new gold frame really made it pop and tied in the blue and gold througout the room.

I had a white, pedestal, rectangle table in my head and when I found this one I knew this would be perfect.

I have to confess, my client wanted these chairs and I was not completely sold on them. Then they arrived, the room was put together and it was perfect!

Since we already had a pedestal dining table, we decided to stay with a pedestal console table as well.

And, of course we needed some blue and white vases. I mixed and matched a few I found at Homegoods. I have to tell you, I LOVE them, they are affordable and just work so well to bring blue to the table.

    It’s so so pretty. Love the color combo and that rug took my breath away. It’s so pretty. I wish I would have more blue in my house.
