Long time, no blog! The “slow” season of decorating was anything but this year! I want to share with you a house I designed last spring (hence the bunnies and eggs in October!)
I not only fell in love with this home, but I came to adore the whole family that lived inside of it! They are the kindest people, and they have such a warm spirit in their home. So when they contacted me to design some of the rooms in their home, so that they could entertain their daughter’s friends more I was beyond thrilled. They make you feel so welcomed, and to me that’s the most beautiful part of a home. The warm, welcoming, spirit placed there by the people who occupy it!
The dining room was currently being used as a sitting room off the main living room. Since this area was the best place for a large table, I recommended turning it back into a traditional dining room.
The homeowner was drawn to fresh, airy, white rooms with a minimalist feel. Not too cluttered, not too empty!

Instead of removing the chair rail I opted to have the bottom half painted white to give it a wainscoting look. I kept the top airy, yet colorful with this light green. It’s called “Emmy’s Room” from the Joanna Gaines paint collection. I have used it several times since! It is the perfect combination of the light farmhouse look, while still adding some color to a space!
I kept the wall art to a minimum with just 2 focal points. This was intentional to keep the wall art from overwhelming the eye. I chose a fresh centerpiece with greenery to add a natural element to the room. What I love about this centerpiece is how easy it can transition through the seasons. The homeowner can leave it up spring through summer and simply add some fall berries for autumn decor, and swap the moss balls for snowballs and a little evergreen for the winter!
Thanks for reading!
