One Room Challenge – Dining Room Week One

I am so excited to be participating as a guest in this year’s fall 2018 one room challenge! If you’re not familiar with the one room challenge it’s basically when a ton of design bloggers come together to try and complete one room in their home in 6 weeks. There are 20 featured designers and many other bloggers who participate as guests. It is a great way to find inspiration!

I chose my dining room for the challenge because I’m going to be hosting Christmas this year and really want a beautiful space to have dinner in.

This room started out as a wallpapered mess. I actually didn’t hate the wallpaper that was in this room but it was not in the best shape and really just not my style. I decided to go all white with the paint and I’m so glad I did!

The photo below is from the Zillow listing.

The black fireplace got a white paint job as well!

I’m basically done painting the room and will post afters of the paint next week!

I really want this room to be a mix of mid century modern and traditional with lots of femininity! (Is that a word?!) Blush and light blue will be my main accent colors.

This is actually an office space but the desk and chairs are exactly what I’m going for!

This blush and light almost periwinkle blue with the white walls is perfection. And that light fixture 😍

Yes this one is a bathroom but the blush curtains with all the white and gold accents plus the mid century lighting is exactly what I’m going for!

Vintage table diy –

I want to find a thrifted table and do a white lacquer paint job. I’m looking for something with super clean lines and not to much detail work on it.

Chairs –

Definitely going to do some kind of rattan chairs. I absolutely love rattan next to a high gloss white. It’s such a beautiful contrast.

Curtains –

As of right now I’m planning on blush velvet curtains. There’s a somewhat good chance I might change my mind to white velvet curtains but we shall see!

Sideboard –

I want to find a campaign dresser that will fit and work as a side board. I’ll be thrifting this as well so I’m open to a few different options.

Artwork –

I’ll be framing 3 panels of blue and white floral fabric to go above the sideboard.

I am so thrilled to be doing this challenge. I can’t wait to see everyones rooms and FINALLY get this room of my own done!
