Alrighty, so this week’s post on possibly doing blue picture frame molding in the dining room was fairly controversial. That’s definitely is not always a bad thing. I wouldn’t hesitate to do what you like if you like it.
Since that was just a preliminary idea, I continued on with brainstorming and here is where I am now. Here is the design we’re going to start working on executing. I created a mock up of this idea in the space in order to show it to you, below.
Blue (maybe more navy than it appears here) on the upper part of the wall, despite the curved corners. White or pale gray on the bottom, white picture frame molding only on the bottom, below the chair rail.
Then, I will anchor the space with a natural jute rug which would add some texture to the space. I’d add some life and green with plants on the table. Probably actually three topiary style plants.
I will continue the blue (navy) on the wall on the coffered ceiling.
When designing a space, you have to also consider what is going on within eye shot so it all works together. How would this work with the nearby entry?
Let’s take a look at the two side by side. I’m considering a stencil behind the blue dresser in the entry.
How does the space look currently? Well, so you can compare, here are the last photos that I shared where I had the tape loosely put up to show a general idea.
So, the top images depict the design that we are going for. I thought I would share.
Of course, things could change! I’m always making tweaks.
Stay tuned to see the progress! We hope to get started soon.
