The rumor is dining rooms are becoming obsolete. Today’s modern family lives a more casual lifestyle and our homes are a reflection of that. With our busy schedules it is sometimes hard to all sit down for dinner. Just think, all the planning involved with creating a sit down dinner where everyone in the home is present. I know…daunting. Just kidding! It’s really not that bad. I am an advocate for family time and I don’t think dining at home is going out of style. At least I hope not.
I think the stigma with formal dining rooms are they can be a bit stiff and stuffy. I disagree! Your dining room can be sophisticated and comfortable all-in-one. Whether your style is traditional, modern, contemporary, rustic or an eclectic mix you can create a dining space that everyone will love and want to eat in. I am telling you it can be possible. Just be open, be inspired and create. Take a look at these spaces that do just that.
I absolutely love the color green. From jade to emerald, mossy green or hints of sage, I love them all. They are all so wonderful and can be incorporated in your home through the use of furniture pieces, home décor or just simply adding plants. Green tends to be restful and soothing to the eye. Along with offering a deep sense of renewal and harmony to any space.
Here are a few images I found that have me ready to add green everywhere in my home. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
Being a girly girl, I love lots of pinks, reds and purples. Glamorous detail such as; fur throws, animal print and metallic accessories. All these things make a home sweet home for me. Incorporating a room or two to the leading lady is a must in my opinion. Sorry gentleman but I am sure you understand. What’s that saying, “A happy wife means a happy life.” Just saying! A woman needs a place to unwind and be delighted in all the beautiful things around her.
Ladies when creating your feminine sanctuary remember these key elements:
1. Use soft to the touch fabrics.
2. Choose your color palette wisely. For example, pinks, purples or pastels.
3. Use pretty accessories (metallics are everything). Kind-of-like the jewelry in the room.
4. Choose furniture with curves down to the legs.
Here are some images to help you along the way.
