Dining Room Ideas...

I'm trying to get my home all in order for my portfolio and right now my biggest concern is my dining area. It's small right off the kitchen very informal. Since my living room has tons of color and fun, I want to keep the dining area a little more simple with shades of tans and blues.

I already have a white parsons style console table and a dark wood simple rectangle dining table as well as two peacock blue lamps that will go on each side of the console they look very similar to these although I got mine for $5 each at my favorite antique store.

I will need 4 faux bamboo chippendale chairs. These are from Ballards but since I dont want to pay that much I will probably search ebay and craigslist.

I will reupholster the chairs in this gorgeous Laura Ashley ikat fabric

I think I'm going to go with a simple sisal rug from Ikea

The Price is right on this super cute capriz pendant from Home Depot

I also am LOVING this capriz pendant from Target

What do you think? Any Suggestions??

sounds gorgeous! a mirror can always make a space feel larger. maybe over the console?
