"It Almost Feels Like a Room"

Those were my husband's exact words regarding our dining room. I think he meant, "It's starting to feel like a room in OUR home". Slowly but surely, things are coming together. We have a few more finishing touches to add to the dining room (like a rug), but as you can see it's a far cry from the pinkish hue selected by the previous owners...

Before

After

The room isn't quite ready for a full reveal just yet, but I just couldn't resist posting what we have accomplished so far. Other than the paint, the fabric, and the curtain hardware; we already owned all of the other items in the room. The pair of Mid-Century chairs flanking the window were a garage sale find in California, the Japanese wood block prints were purchased by my mom in Japan in the 1960s, the large modern painting was painted by my father, and the silver bowl was a wedding gift. Believe it or not, but I had none of these items in mind when I first decided to paint the room grey

So as for the obvious missing piece, I am thinking something simple like a sisal or jute rug. What do you think?

I think it has come together beautifully. I love how you get a sense of warm yet crispness at the same time.
