Home Tour: Summer Dining Room

Hi and welcome to our Home Tour:  Summer Dining Room.  I am excited to share our updated look for the summer this year with navy + green.  (Well, really it’s spring – but you know what I meant) – ha!  And nothing says “hello spring/summer” more than signs of beautiful green grass and Easter celebrations.  Click 26 Gorgeous Easter Tablescapes To Try or My Easter Tablescape:  Blue & Yellow to see more spring table inspiration.

So, how you decide which color to use each year? Well, it depends on what colors draw you in and just make you smile.  Especially…..if you can use it with some of your existing decorations, then you have a winner.  Are you picturing it yet?  You know the one…..Yep – that’s your color then!  Is it green like mine?


HOME TOUR:  SUMMER DINING ROOM

It’s funny how some colors come and go in trends, but green is always in.  And why is that you ask?  Because green is the color of all things nature-related.   Whether you use it as an accent (decor) item, as greenery (plant), or even as food (apples) …..it just shouts fresh, crisp, and clean!!  Use lighter shades of green for spring, and darker shades of green for summer….  but. just. use. green. please!!  OK-   Let’s get to it then!!

DECORATING PLAYBOOK

I have to admit that our dining room is my favorite room to decorate, because #1:  it is the easiest to change out and #2:  it is the easiest to clean.    Plus, it does not get as cluttered as the living room and kitchen with all of our “daily junk,” and that means less work!!   Who else is with me here – LOL??!!  I just have to move the backpacks, shoes, and loose homework paper to another room and voila – it’s clean!!

So, what makes it so easy to change out?  The reason for this is that I have my core items in place, and then I can sprinkle in my accessories as needed.  Here is a list of the 2 groups to help me explain it better.

CORE ITEMS:

  • Rug
  • Lamp Base
  • Mirrors – Gray and White
  • White Slipcovered Chairs
  • Chandelier
  • Buffet
  • Table
  • Candle Sconces
  • Candle Sticks

ACCESSORIES:

  • Lamp SHADES
  • Table Runner
  • Floral Arrangement
  • Throw Pillows
  • Wreath (if I want color on the mirror)
  • Table/Place Settings
  • Candles
  • Ceramic Orb Balls (in candle sticks)

 

By keeping the core (foundation) items of the room relatively the same, I can just simply “pop” in some accessories (accent items/colors) and get a whole new look.  This keeps my decorating costs down big time….and it allows me to “feel” like I am getting a New ROOM!!

Plus, this helps me with seasonal changes as well.  I can easily “add in” the accent color of the season or holiday and not have to change the entire decor.  I can use yellow or pink accents for Easter, orange and gold accents for Fall/Autumn, and red accents for Valentine’s Day, Fourth of July, and Christmas.  Love this!!

Here are some pictures so you can see what I am talking about.  I am a visual person, so attaching a picture along with the core items and accessories will help join the 2 elements together.
