The dining room received a splash of color! Behold, a teal accent wall, just as I promised. I went with Ralph Lauren’s Blue Lagoon. It came out darker than anticipated…and greener. But I’m glad it did because there’s a lot of blue in the room and the greener hue keeps it from looking too matchy-matchy.
As you can see, there’s also a new rug! I’ve been searching for the Nate Berkus chevron rug for a while now. It’s no longer available on HSN and seemed impossible to find elsewhere. Somehow, I got lucky last week and spotted a 8′x10′ version randomly on eCrater. The best part – it was $100 cheaper than the HSN price and brand new!
Living room + dining room combo, looking spiffy.
Just for fun, here’s a photo of the dining room as staged by the previous owner. Sorry for the poor quality, I grabbed it from the real estate listing of our house.
A picture’s worth a thousand words…let’s just say we’ve come a long way.
Are you wondering why the cat is in every photo? It’s because she fell madly in love with the new rug, instantly. She kept rolling on it and scratching it. Hasn’t she heard of playing hard to get? Geesh.
