Coming back to basics always feels so good! And after Christmas has gone, returning to simplicity is my comfort zone. Through the years people have asked me a lot of questions about my dining room area. Today I’m going to be sharing my simple dining room decor for a transitional season and some of the resources of this neutral room.
Dining room table:
This table is from Home Decorators Collection and is called the Edmund Smoke Grey Dining Table and I’ve had it since we bought this house, around 4 years ago. I love the grayish color and grain of this wood (Sheesham) and the size of this table (30 in. H x 68 in. W x 36 in. D). It has surpassed my expectations and to tell you the truth, I’ve always cleaned it with soap and water. Of course I make sure to dry it with paper towel.
Along with the table I bought the Edmund Smoke Grey Wood Dining Bench in the same color. Both pieces have been a great buy.
The end chairs are from HomeGoods from a while back. Here are some similar ones I’ve found on the web:
The metallic chairs are from Walmart and I love how they complement the look of this area. These are the Better Homes and Gardens Collin Silver Dining Chair and they come in a set of two for a fantastic price. Here are other options that might interest you:
I chose this simple dough bowl as my center piece for this transitional season. I love its rustic look and how I can easily filled it with a variety of accessories; from succulents to a wood beaded piece of decor. See here some of the resources:
A while back I share a simple DIY project I did in order to create a slimmer type of sideboard. You can view the details here, but just to briefly describe it, we took 3 Ikea Eket cabinets and joined them with a wood board top. I love how convenient this project has been. It has allowed more storage space in our small house and has provided an area to add some decor pieces.
For this transitional season I’ve chosen to get some plants inside from our patio. One of them is a lemon tree that has some small fruits soon to start growing. I have some decor books always at reach for when searching for some inspiration. I’ve enlisted here some of my favorites:
Another piece I recently added to this sideboard is this Magnolia Market Metal House Planter (small). I love its look and that I can add one or two plants to bring a fresh look into our dining room.
Last but not least, the lamp. This Petra 6-Light Candle Chandelier from Wayfair has 6 candle-style lights arranged in a single tier. I remember seeing a similar lamp in the Ryan Reynolds movie “Self/Less” and falling in love with it.
As you can see, I keep this area simple with an organic and fresh look. This allows this room to breath and feel light no matter its real size.
Hope you enjoyed this list of resources and my approach to a simple dining room decor for a transitional season. Do you like to keep things simple or prefer to add a bit of pizzas with some extra pieces of decor?
