It’s definitely not a new idea, but it’s the first time I’ve tried it and I think it’s great. Here’s how I’m jazzing up my dining room:
Just a couple of plain white frames from Michael’s (I got them 40% off, woo-hoo!) and a few of my kids’ preschool masterpeices. I think it looks pretty awesome. Abstract and modern, clean with the modern frames… the double-mat really elevates them. And in my current color fave, tangerine, which also happens to be the Pantone Institute’s 2012 color of the year…
Chooch & Schmoodle, what can I say? Always one step ahead of the trends; you do your mama proud!
I think it was an awesome find! Someone literally kicked it to the curb. It was out with the trash and I spotted it driving home from Choochie’s summer camp one day… it’s got great bones but it needs some serious TLC! The upholstery’s pretty beat (off-white pleather) and there are a lot of paint splatters on the wood, but I love the overall look of it and the color of the wood finish. What do you think?
Background info: I’m going for a modern feel in my dining room with a tight color palette of silver, white, and medium wood tones, with pops of tangerine. I’ve done a pretty subtle metallic glaze on the walls above the chair rail.
I’m hoping to soon have a grey-and-white zebra-print area rug (budget: you suck):
Oh, and I’m working on a sweater-knit runner for the table:
