There are so many things to love about this room. In fact, the combination of color and wood finish reminds me of what I’m trying to achieve in my kitchen. But then the stunning light fixture and the half painted black walls makes it more modern than rustic. Overall, this dining room really has my heart.
Once I found the dining room, I was compelled to click through and discover the rest of this gorgeous home. I found that the mixture of modern and rustic is balanced throughout this inspiring Danish home.
Firstly, I know I left you all hanging yesterday, and I’m sorry about that! I am a little under the weather this week and the doctor prescribed lots of rest. I’ve been hanging out in my bed with my furry assistant, Perry, who is more than happy to comply with the prescribed care. Although a few of the DIYs I had scheduled may be pushed out, I’m more than capable to search the internet and find beautiful things… so it might be that kind of week. But enough of that downer. Onto rugs…
When I started researching rugs for my kitchen remodel, I started at all my typical spots, Urban, Ikea, West Elm, etc. I soon realized, however, that I needed to expand my rug reach if I was going to find a rug that not only met my exact requirements, but that also wasn’t splashed across every blog, magazine, pin out there. I wanted something with a flat weave and a unique look, but in a more traditional neutral/warm color in a turkish or persian style pattern. Nothing too crazy geometric or trendy and nothing too colorful. BUT I do want some color, not just black and white.
As I expanded my search, I found five great sources that had what I felt was a really expansive selection where I could just keep hitting ‘next page’ to search for my perfect kitchen rug.
Happy Friday! What is on your weekend agenda? I am scooting off to Chicago this weekend for my nephew's first birthday party and I'm excited
I dont’ know about you, but I’m seriously gearing up for all the warm, cozy meals that come with the lower fall temps. Chili, braised squash, roasted chickens… you name it, they’re on my fall meal plan (yes, I meal plan). Trivets are one of those strange things that you don’t know you don’t have until you need one NOW! Last year during our friendsgiving feast, I started to realize that I had no real trivets and once all my potholders were used up, I had nothing to use to pull the bird out of the oven. Sob story aside, today’s DIY is not only super functional, but its beautiful too! Look at that wood! That rope! Those dipped edges! And today, I’m sharing the easy step by step plan to make your own expandable dowel trivet.
Hey there! I'm glad you're here! Today, I am waffling over paint colors for my kitchen redesign and looking for the best creamy gray paint. Yesterday,
I’m going forward full force on this farmhouse kitchen redesign, and today I have the first little update for you all – the lighting! Not only did we update the main light and ceiling fan, but we also updated the light that is in the adjacent ‘sink room’. Our sink room is a separate little room off the main kitchen. Since our home was built in the late 1800’s, it wasn’t build with indoor plumbing and the room with the sink was added later down the road (you can get a better view of it in the photo below!). Regardless, we have both lights replaced in today’s kitchen update!
