I have NEVER had my own dining room. Heck, in two out of my four apartments I didn't even have a designated bedroom! Our soon to be house has bedrooms AND a dining room, can you even believe it?! Of all the rooms in this house the dining room is my favorite. It is the room you walk into when you enter the home and it has the sweetest little fireplace on the left hand wall. It't our first impressions room, so it's gotta be good! 

I have been dreaming up this room since I saw it, it is begging for a little life to be added. Our overall color scheme of the house will be grey, white, navy and brass, with obvious accents of wood and greenery. I'm planning on a navy accent wall in the living room, which is adjacent to the dining room, so the tones will play off each other nicely.

We will wallpaper the left wall of the dining room in the below grey and white wallpaper and add a rich beam mantle to the fireplace for depth and texture. The white entry table (which is actually a dresser) will be located by the front door to hold keys, wallets, gloves, etc. Above the table you will find a round brass mirror and blue marbled lamp. The dining table will sit in the center of the room with its four grey chairs, flanked by two navy armchairs. The gold etagere will sit on the wall opposite the front door where my white serving pieces will be displayed. Unfortunately, the ceilings are not high enough for a traditional chandelier but my love for this flush mount brass fixture runs DEEP! With the addition of brass candlesticks, greenery, and maybe a wire basket of birch logs this room should feel complete. 

Don't look for reveal photos any time soon. We have walls to knock down, doors to replace, and closets to build before any of the "pretty" happens. Stay tuned, this is just the beginning!
