Dining Room Rug Tips

Dining Room Rug Tips

A few weeks ago the master bedroom stole the dining room rug, a move that vastly improved my satisfaction with the master bedroom but left the dining room naked and vulnerable. ūüėČ After a period of indecisiveness, I finally settled on a new rug for the dining room and it is SO. GOOD! I’m sharing all about our new rug and dining room rug tips for you to keep in mind when shopping for a new rug.

Dining Room Rug Tips

Since there were a few factors that I considered when making this choice, I thought it may be helpful to share my dining room rug tips with you.

Our new dining room rug is from Loloi’s Layla collection in the rust/ocean colorway. We have the 9×12 size. It is a gorgeous rug! It has saturated hues and an Old World, worn look that makes it appear vintage.… Read more

Dining Room Refresh Coming Soon!

Dining Room Refresh Coming Soon!

Last year, I mentioned plans to give our dining room a refresh. We’ve made a couple of changes since then including new floors as part of our kitchen reno and a show-stopper brass dome light fixture but then the dining room refresh stalled. Sometimes design takes time and it’s usually better in the end because of it.

Dining Room Refresh

A while back, I purchased this rug for the room but sent it back with intentions of going up a size. Then I hesitated because I started to see the rug in other designs and I even used it in my clients living room. Here is a little glimpse of it in my space.

I love it, but I decided to hold out for something different that made my heart sing. And then, my favorite rug company Loloi announced a collaboration with Joanna Gaines and I fell head over heels for this rug from the collection.… Read more

Farmhouse Dining Room Refresh

Farmhouse Dining Room Refresh

I’ve dropped a couple hints on Instagram about doing a little farmhouse dining room refresh so today I’m sharing the deets. Since we’re redoing the floors in the dining room as part of the big kitchen renovation, I figured now was a great time to make some changes.

Dining Room Before

First things first, let’s take a trip down dining room memory lane. The dining room was one of the first rooms we completed after moving into our house. I shared the reveal of the space in February of last year. Here’s what it looked like then:

Whoa mamma, look at all that stuff. Since then I’ve pared the decor way back. I eliminated the bar cart and simplified the gallery wall. Here’s a more recent look:horizontal stair railing

So what do I want to change, you¬†ask? Just the light fixture, the rug, the chairs and maaaaybe the buffet! (Insert monkey emoji with hands over eyes). Here’s the direction¬†I’m headed:farmhouse dining room refresh

More simplistic, less colorful, more farmhouse-y.

Light fixture: I want a fixture that is grander in scale so I’m replacing the current 3-tier vintage fixture with¬†a large brass dome light fixture which just may become my new favorite in the space (the house?).… Read more

Here’s the before to jog your memory.

Our Global Eclectic Dining Room!

Here’s the lowdown on what we did. We started by caulking and painting the trim on all those windows. It was a tedious process and required 3 coats plus a 4th round of touch ups. When trying to choose the right white paint you would have thought I was choosing my wedding dress.… Read more



I have always wanted a formal dining room, an eclectic dining room that could feature our art, where I could merge the old with the new. Our last house was an open concept with the dining room open to the living. While I think the dining room got more use because of that, it was not large enough to accommodate a lot of guests…at least not without adding an additional table and spilling into the living room – which we did, many times. When searching for the¬†new home, I thought it would be nice to have a dedicated formal dining room, large enough¬†to¬†house a huge table and¬†fit the whole family around.¬†Especially for the holidays when I really kick up the styling and entertaining and attempt to cook a meal.

So, you can imagine my giddiness when the #dalydigs had just this kind of dining room.


This is the before of the dining room. The two photos on the right are when we first saw it prior to some improvements the bank made. Interesting huh?¬†It had some issues – namely a friggin plywood window.… Read more
