Our dining room nook has gone through many transformations over the last eight years we have lived here. I have to say, this one is my favorite!
There is just something about the balance of the warmth coming from the new pendant light and the new chairs. They are being perfectly balanced by the newly painted benches. And then the addition of all the textures in the pillows just makes for the most welcoming space.
Our nook benches had been natural wood since the day we bought/made them. I enjoyed that look for a long time, but always had the itch to paint them. I just knew once I did, there was no going back. I finally took the chance after painting our interior doors. I knew I loved those, so why not finally tackle the benches. Well, I think you can see why painting them was a total game changer!
The new Ginny solid wood chairs contrast with the painted benches in a balanced way. I love that these chairs remind me of some I grew up with, but with a modern twist. Their low profile backs work well with my existing table. It was such a hard choice on picking the right chairs because of the many options available.
I knew with this dining nook refresh a new pendant light was in order! We had had a rattan one for years, but I was ready for something more refined. This Everton dome pendant light was just that. The scale is perfectly proportioned to my table size. I love how the black cord mimics the other light fixtures in my home and again, it adds warmth in a new way to this corner.
I shared on my Instagram how we don’t have the ability to hard wire a lighting fixture unless we hire an electrician, but that’s just not in the budget right now. In order to make this light still “work” we did the puck light trick. I placed 5 total within the dome and just with the click of the remote, there’s the perfect amount of ambient lighting.
The final touch to add the most welcoming of features is the addition of textures and patterns. If you also have banquette seating then you know pillows make the space!! I love the new addition of these deep green Fancy throw pillows. They provide the right amount of subtle color. And then I thought this tribal patterned pillow added a nice artful touch. Lastly, the Stansel textured pillow provided added interest. I could have selected so many other pillows too, because you know my love for them!
I can say that setting this new dining scene has completely changed the way I look at this corner. The balance of contrast, warmth and pattern just says “take a seat.” Can’t wait to be able to gather around this table with the people I love most.
Thank you AllModern for always having such a great selection of dining room essentials.
