The Statement Necklace of Our Dining Room

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Yea, I know. The above photo of our dining room definitely does NOT make a statement. Well, maybe the statement that it makes is that it just looks blah. Trust me, I've known that it has looked like blah for a long time and ya know what? We finally did something about it! I know that I've mentioned several times the items that I would like to add to our dining room space and I'm pretty sure I've even shown you the examples of the items too.

We still have a little bit to go before I can say that I've checked off the dining room on my list but I'm thinking we're getting closer to the end result. Okay, okay I'll stop rambling and tell you what we did. We added the light fixture from West Elm! The one that I have been eye'ing longingly for some time now and still have no idea why we didn't get it sooner? Really, there is no good reason why we didn't get it sooner. But we did it, we finally got the darn thing!

Here are some Before shots of the dining room/dining space. It's not technically a traditional dining room since it's in the same space as the kitchen but it is used as a dining room and not an eat-in kitchen.



I must admit that I am in love with our dining room. I wasn't really liking it since the space above the table was so vast and empty. But now with the addition of the new chandelier (I call it the statement necklace of the room), I don't want to leave the space. It really fills the space up with warmth and glamour. It is technically a modern light fixture and to place it in a modestly shabby chic space seems a bit jarring, but I love the contrast of the sleek and shiny with the warm and organic textures and colors already in the room.

What do you guys think??

{This room will continue to get worked on, but I just had to share with you this new addition!}
