My Dining Room Inspiration

With the help of an interior designer, the colors have been selected for my dining room makeover.  My inspiration was this dining room by Palmer Weiss.

"Delicate grays accented with fresh citrine, bright white borders, burnished gold and light wood tones."
As I mentioned before, I wanted this makeover to be (hopefully) quick and inexpensive.  The creamy White Down color will be painted on the walls which will create a sense of space and calm that puts the room in the best light.  It also blends very well with the existing Revere Pewter that is in our living room right adjacent to the dining room.  Both these colors compliment the accent color citrine.  

The walls have been painted and my rug from Overstock has been purchased.  The next couple of weeks will be spent giving my existing furniture pieces a paint makeover (dining room table, chairs, sideboard and chandelier).  I also am in the process of selecting the fabric for my roman shades.  Once, I select the fabric, I'll post my mood board.  In the meantime, a lot to do......stay tuned!


  1. Oooohhh good choice for an inspiration room! I love the colors!


  2. I love your inspiration and the colors!

  3. How can you go wrong with beautiful inspiration like that?! I'm very excited to see the developments!

  4. Your inspiration image is beautiful Fran and it sounds like the perfect transition from the kitchen with similar colors. I'm sure you will make it beautiful :)

  5. I LOVE that room- the console area/trellis chairs and gold mirror are just perfection. I can't wait to see your transformation- sure to be just as lovely!

  6. Exciting! Love the colors, how it'll blend with the rest of the house, and how it's going to be done so inexpensively. I'll be curious to hear how you like your jute rug. That's one of the best prices I've seen, and I'm in the market for one for my LR! Good luck with the changes, and keep us posted!!

  7. I have that exact same rug in my living room! I love that inspiration space. The color pallet is so lovely!

  8. I love the color combination & inspiration. it will be beautiful! and isn't that the truth about working with a designer? having a fresh perspective from someone that has great taste and understands how rooms should be put together is invaluable! that's why I like working with Holly on my rooms so much!! It makes such a difference!! Even when you have a good eye to start with! love your craig's list approach too!! Have a great day, Fran!!
