Decorating the Dining Areas

Time is just flying......can't believe I haven't gotten photos on here yet....

Accessorizing and staging is going slow........very slow......so all I have to show is the physical tables......still need rugs, wall decor, etc.   I have decided I am only going to purchase what I desperately LOVE and nothing else...so if it takes me 3 years to put the house together, so be it.  lol

Formal Dining Room:

This room is a work in progress....EngineerHubby cannot decide what he does and does not like (notice normally the wife decides these things????)....so we are in limbo....the table in this photo is going back....the buffet that was finally delivered has problems...several cracks.....going to be repaired/replaced...but his beloved chairs are here....long story......

Sherwin Williams Peppercorn, Haverty's Sterling Heights

The light fixture is a dramatic improvement over the light bulb that hung from the ceiling for the last few months!!  Another Joss & Main purchase, I couldn't be happier with my 'regularly $1200 light for $299"....it blends nicely with the other lighting in the foyer and breakfast nook.

These tables come from the same furniture family.....all purchased because of these chairs......EngineerHubby just LOVES LOVES LOVES the way these chairs feel when sitting in them and NOTHING else would do.

Paint Colors:

Formal Dining Room - Sherwin Williams Peppercorn (dark charcoal gray with blue undertones)

Breakfast Room (and majority of house) - Sherwin Williams Perfect Greige (sometimes beige, sometimes gray)



  1. Beautiful! The chairs do look comfortable. Love the light fixture!

  2. Hello! I've been looking for some inspiration for our new home everywhere and your breakfast nook matches our color scheme perfectly! We have Sherwin Williams perfect greige on our walls and white trim. I've been trying to choose a coordinating blind color and am trying to avoid pure white. We have sandtone window frames (it looks as if you do as well) and there is no white trim surrounding our windows just along the base boards and door frames. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!


Thanks so much for your lovely comments!
