Earthy Modern Dining Room Reveal

My oh my how this year has absolutely flown by!

With Thanksgiving only a few weeks away, I have been prepping my dining room for the very first Turkey Day that my family and I will be hosting in our Midcentury Modern lake house this year, and it got me thinking…

It has been over seven freakin’ months since I last shared the status of this room with you.

But before I get into sharing all of the updates I have made to the space, I thought you would first appreciate a good “before” photo….

So the photo above is how the home looked when our sellers first purchased the home.

While I wish I could take credit for the dramatic changes that were made to the paint color, ceiling and entire back wall (windows/doors), I was lucky enough to have stepped into a fully renovated space- getting to just make fun, cosmetic tweaks….

When my husband and I purchased the home, the previous owners had basically renovated everything- all the way down to the studs (apparently the entire back wall of the A- frame had rotted). As you can see in the video I have included below, they made the window and door openings not only larger, but symmetrical.

The walls were painted in a creamy white (Shoji White by Sherwin Williams) and this once great room/living space was reconfigured into a formal dining room with a custom- built feasting table constructed of a walnut base with a white maple top.

While I did add and alter the light fixtures to give the space a more modern aesthetic, I decided to purchase the custom- built dining table from the previous owners along with the live-edge console table .

To keep the space from feeling too sterile, I layered a vintage kilim rug (purchased from here) on top of a chunky, sisal rug. (Please note: all decor sources are linked at the bottom of this post!)

When I shared this space months ago, I was having to use makeshift outdoor dining chairs at the table, but I am so happy to share that I finally got some proper dining chairs for quite a steal!

To offset all of the hard, rustic elements, I went with upholstered dining chairs .

While the chairs do come in multiple colors (I was lusting over the beige), I settled on light grey fabric- hoping it would be more conducive to messy children.

When we first moved in, the front door was painted in a playful, green-hue (Coastal Plains by Sherwin Williams), but I finally took the plunge and painted the doors in Tricorn Black by Sherwin Williams.

To establish some symmetry on this very long table, I scored these fabulous black cantilever lamps. The white cone shades give me all the organic modern vibes I have been obsessed with for quite some time now.

While I did move the black and white Jerry Garcia mugshot in lieu for artwork with more color, not to fear, my fellow dead heads…Jerry is now safe and sound in my black, moody hallway.

Decorative pedestals are definitely having a moment right now, so I decided to experiment with the look and add some texture into the mix with these concrete pillars.

Of course…no room is complete without crystals!

Now that I have put my decorative touches on the space, the only thing left to do here will require some persuasion from my end…

You see…I am trying to convince my husband that we need to paint the glass, wooden doors black.

Of course, I will update you if I am ever successful on this mission.

And because I don’t believe my photos really do this space justice, I have included a little i-phone video for you directly below as well….

Painting the wood doors black is exactly the touch that room needs. It would make the room spectacular instead of just NICE.
