Round-up :: Dining Chairs

wishbone dining chairs

A new set of dining chairs can make all the difference in giving your dining room an updated look. Some of my favorites include clean lined mid-century, timeless traditional and eclectic vintage chairs. The dining room shown above, by Stylizimo is a beautiful example featuring mid-century wishbone chairs – love how the sheepskin rug thrown over one chair gives it an on trend bohemian look too.

Now, where can you find vintage, eclectic or designer chairs? A fabulous source is Viyet (pronounced vee-yet). It offers access to designer and brand name furniture at a fraction of retail prices. They make it easy for owners of high-end furniture to sell items when it comes time to move or redecorate. All of their pieces come from individual homes, interior designers, or designer showrooms and are personally inspected by one of their experienced curators.

Today, I’ve selected several of my current dining chair favorites now available at Viyet. Whether your starting fresh or looking for the perfect chairs to update your room, these chairs will make any dining space look beautiful.

Scandinavian Christmas Style

Have you been busy decking the halls? Truth be told – I haven’t gone crazy this season. I’m not sure if my hesitation to go all out decorating for Christmas is because of all the hectic house construction over the last year or that my holiday style is changing. Over time I’ve been increasingly drawn to the simple style of the Scandinavian Christmas. The style embraces minimalist, rustic and natural elements that I’m loving this season. To show you, I’ve pulled some of my favorite images featuring this Nordic style – all found on my Holiday Decorating Ideas board on Pinterest (yes, still a go to place to organize images and inspiration).

Reveal :: Modern Bathroom with Rove Concepts

This modern bathroom reveal is long overdue folks, but with the One Room Challenge for our foyer and master bathroom it got pushed aside. One of the first projects we tackled in our new fixer-upper home last year was the guest bathroom – mainly because of an active leak that needed to be addressed. Over the years, the bathroom had been updated here and there, but not in a good way. The blinds, contemporary vanity, plastic yellow tiles and glass mosaic tile work needed to go. In fact, the entire space needed to be gutted and it all had to go except the original tub. Take a look at the before images and you will understand.

We wanted the new bathroom to feel fresh, yet timeless; traditional, yet with a modern twist. The black hexagon cement tile flooring was selected first and the white subway tile contrasted with dark grout was a natural pairing. The window was painted a glossy black and dressed with a custom roman shade in a sharp black and white buffalo check fabric. A new smaller pedestal sink, chrome mirror and vanity lighting was also added for a clean look.

As you know, I love to mix styles and love modern touches. To complete the space I teamed up with Rove Concepts, a leader in mid-century modern reproduction furnishings and accessories. I appreciate their focus on quality, detail and use of the highest quality materials to deliver reflect the essence of minimalist design.

I love adding a stool or chair to a bathroom when space allows. Once the radiator under the window was removed, it seemed a lovely spot for seating. Rove Concepts’ Flag Halyard Ottoman was the perfect choice. This statement piece was inspired by Hans J. Wegner and features suspended flag line supported by a durable stainless steel frame. It also comes with a chic Australian long-haired sheepskin to drape over the top. Isn’t it divine?

You know how I like to incorporate live plants in every room and bathrooms are no exception. Rove Concepts’ Strapped Marble Vase caught my eye instantly as I knew it would look great in the space. It now houses a beautiful orchid. I adore the strap detail – it brings a little warmth to the space and coordinates with the ottoman nicely.

Keeping it simple and functional, I selected a black ceramic coffee cup to corral the toothbrushes. The cup’s finish is a combination of matte and glossy. A subtle, yet lovely detail.

I’m completely in love with this new bathroom. And a big thank you to Rove Concepts for helping me get it beautifully styled.

New Kitchen Inspiration

As many of you know, we purchased a 1940s colonial style fixer upper. We’ve tackled several rooms already including the foyer and master bath. Our next big project is renovating a retro kitchen and opening up several smaller rooms to create an open great room. Over the last several months we’ve been to finalizing the plan and obtaining the building permit. Now we are demoing the space, so there is no going back!

I’d like the kitchen to feel light, modern with natural elements. Here are a few kitchens that I’m drawn to and have helped me hone in on what we want.
