So, before we moved into the house….the dining room looked like this….
The previous owners took the curtains and the light with them….and then until we remodeled the room looked like this….
When we remodeled, we didn’t really do much to the dining room except for replace the crown moldings (making them larger) and widening the openings to the room which you really cannot see in these photos anyways. We also removed the wallpaper, painted and sanded and re-finished the floors. (The little bar in the first “before’ image is now the entrance to our butler’s pantry that leads into the kitchen on the other end.)
You may recall that I brought my living room curtains with me from our old house. I had them re-pleated to be tacked at the top (vs. pinch pleats) and had them re-worked for our dining room windows. The colorway on this fabric (Lee Jofa) has been since discontinued. The drapery hardware is from Barbara Barry’s Kravet collection. It has a bamboo motif on the rod and the rings. Not recommended if you want to open and close them easily!
Here is the room today after the drapes were installed.
Still haven’t done anything to accessorize and everything is from our old home…..but, slowly but surely it is coming along. I am feeling motivated to get this room done now. I am thinking some grass shades are the next order of business….and art!
