Need Help With Dining Room
October 7, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This is the dining room at my recently-purchased lake house. The current accent wall is a too-dark wallpaper. This room has very high ceilings and opens on two sides to the entryway and the kitchen/greatroom. The other walls are off-white. The furniture in this room is traditional/rustic. I am going for a casual, family friendly feel. Need suggestions on what to do with this wall. Also, suggestions on lighting are welcome.

I think the chandelier you have is quite nice for the space! Just spray paint it a light bronze color. All of it (except the candlesticks). How about replacing the wallpaper with a light green grass cloth wallpaper? With a hint of metallic would give a little shine/texture to the space. Or, you can just paint the wall flat, then do a stencil pattern in a high gloss finish with the same color.

I suggest removing the table cloth but I do think that colour would give the room a more casual feel. It would also lighten all the wood in the room. This type of ceiling fixture is an updated version of a more rustic chandelier. There seems to be a window.......some floor to ceiling curtains. These have a traditional print but the colours are much more updated.

I like the ideas of grass cloth wallpaper or the stencil using the high gloss paint over flat. Thanks!

This isn't for everyone, but it would be beautiful in your dining space. This beautiful hummingbird wallpaper.
