My Current Dining Room and Mood Board

diningroom1My Apartment is my home and I love to decorate it. Since we moved in last fall I’ve been doing little updates here and there around the home but haven’t really finished each room because, well it takes time and money haha. This was the before photo below (sorry for the bad quality photos, taken by real estate people) but yes  it was in a ugly state and we have done quite some work so far to get it to where it’s at now. We painted, the rug was removed when we moved in but we refinished the wood, and added some decor here and there.diningroomold diningroomold2diningroom4So right now I am focusing on fixing up the rest of the Dining Room since it is one of the first rooms you see when you walk into my Apt. We have two doors, one that enters through the dining room and one that enters through the living room. So since this is one of the main focal walk-in areas of my home I want it to have an impact. It is also the area in the house where everyone just seems to hang out and chat, which is weird because you would think it’s the kitchen. I guess t’s because of the big dining table and it’s the center of the whole apartment. I’m currently trying to figure out what to put in these empty corners. Their kind of awkward with the cable box sticking out and in the way, but I really remove/replace that since I don’t own the place. So I was thinking of adding a floor length mirror to this corner, something huge!diningroom5 diningroom3I have this one corner of the dining room that is just plain with nothing in it’s corner. It’s usually our “throw everything down here when you enter the apartment corner”, we seriously need to stop that so I was thinking of doing a bar area with some floating shelves there maybe. I was thinking of adding a nice big plant?
diningroom2So far I have decorated one wall. I loved picking up random frames at Michaels and Home Goods. My decor pieced like the centerpiece tray, jax and flowers are from Home Goods and my White Vase is from Target. Not sure yet how I will finish this room but I feel it has come a long way. This is the mood board I want to go with and hopefully I can get it done before the end of spring. diningroommoodboardDo you get in a decorating mood when spring hits? Where do you like to shop for home decor items?

    I’d love a formal dining room! Our apartment is all open concept so everything runs together. I love what you’ve done so far, cant wait to see what you do with it!

    It looks great so far! I think a little buffet or bar cart in that corner would be cute and give you some great added storage. I love decorating new spaces 🙂

      Thank You 🙂 I am a seasonal decorator as well, I like to change things up a bit cause I get a bit bored if it’s been out too long haha. Plus it makes it fun.

        Tell me about it! Although, I have a bad habit of not taking anything down and away.. well except christmas decorations, but otherwise everything is there until I feel too cluttered 😀
