Over the weekend I was looking at some decor sites on-line and images of rooms with zebra rugs. I LOVE zebra rugs, I think they can add such a POP to a room and go with all colors! I've had one in our living room and while I love it there, I decided to try it in our dining room. I tried it and it looked SO good!! So now I'm going to have to keep my eye out for another rug for the living room.
Also in our dining room was a colorful/modern painting over the buffet. I have loved it there, but I had an idea of something else that would go better with the zebra rug. For Christmas M got me a painting that I had seen and fell in love with of a lady in a wedding dress. We have had it in our bedroom since Christmas and while I have enjoyed it in there, I decided it should be out where it can be seen more! So I moved that into the dining room as well, and along with the zebra rug, it MADE the room!!
I like to keep the room clean and simple, without a lot of clutter. On the other wall is a gold sunburst mirror which I also love!
Other things I would like to do to complete the look of this room:
- Different chairs
- New light fixture
- Window treatments
There are 2 more chairs that go with the table, but I thought it looked a bit crammed and since it's just the 2 of us right now, I kind of liked having only 2 chairs. When we have dinners I bring in more chairs that go nicely, but for everyday, I just have the 2 chairs.
I think painting the room will really make everything come together too, and now that I think this is the look I want to go with, maybe I can decide! I don't know what it is with me and painting, but I am SO indecisive when it comes to picking out paint colors! I go look sometimes and try to pick something out, but then I get so overwhelmed with all of the options. I think I want something in the neutral family - while I do love color I usually like to add color in accessories. I was thinking something in the greys, maybe even a grayish brown or a blue-ish gray - since the painting has a hint of blue.
What color do you all think I should paint this room?
