Styling My New Dining Room

February 28, 2019

Moving to a new city is a great excuse to get my apartment style together.  Up until now my space has been a mix match of furniture I've acquired throughout the years and it's time to make my house a home.  To be honest, I don't really have a particular home style, I like everything, pulling from many different eras.  I suppose it's similar to my fashion style, which isn't identifiable with only one word or adjective.  I guess if I had to narrow it down, I would say that I like the mid century modern look but I also love bohemian and monochrome styles too.   

My new place is COVERED in carpet, which is not ideal for me.  I am NOT a carpet fan.  It's hard to keep clean (I have a dog) and I do not love the look.  But, it's not the end of the world, I am not changing it anytime soon (it's brand new) so I might as well just accept it!  If you are a designer or have an eye for design and know what I can do about the carpet dilemma, PLEASE for the love of god, let me know! 


Here is a pic of the space the day we moved in. 




Here is the space now.  









All of the prints are from local artists/designers.  Snapture This, The Neighbourhood Unit and Gooseberry Studios are currently adorning the walls.  I went with majority of cactus', succulents and aloes because I cannot seem to keep other plants alive.  I would however like to add a big tree and some more prints but I'm going to wait for the right ones, pieces that speak to me. 


It's still a work in progress and I have a few more elements to add but this has already been such a fun project for me.  I would love to hear any ideas you guys have for the space or where you pull your house inspiration from.  


I also plan to redo my living room area, get a new couch and spruce up the space with some art, so stay tuned!
