Dining Room Makeover

We moved into our current house in 2007, and quickly painted the dining room walls from "for sale" off-white to a lovely deep crimson. We added in some dining furniture and a large wrought iron mirror that fit the Spanish-style home, and for the last 7 years have not done much with it. Over the past few months, I've wanted to move the decor of the home toward a bit more minimalist and industrial/modern design, and a makeover was in order. While there is only so much one can do in a 1929 Spanish-style home without creating an enormous confusion in interior styling, I thought that a more muted color palette and some small changes would mix things up. We kept the table, but got some new chairs. We painted the walls a light mint (sea foam) color, and removed the large wrought iron mirror in favor of some photography on the walls. Nothing huge, but the entire room has taken on a new character, and feels both larger and brighter. Makeover complete!

I love making changes like these from time to time, and I continue to look forward to the day when I can pour a little creativity into a new kitchen!
