Modern Dining Room with Dark Ceiling

Finally you all. FINALLY, I have the dining room done and ready to blog!! I think this has been my favorite transformation so far in our house, and it’s going to be hard to top!  (to check out the before of it, check out this post with our 1 year update of the house, and what the dining room looked like before this update!) When I was deciding on a plan for this room I knew I didn’t want anything too bright or flashy because it is right off our front door, so I went with a modern, simple look.  The end plan was a dining room with a dark ceiling, and some huge accent photos on the wall.

Engineering Prints

For the Wall photos I went with large Engineering Prints and wrote a quick post on them here!!

Details

For shelves over our little hutch I used Shelves from IKEA, and used piping pieces for the brackets.  This was super simple, but if anyone needs a tutorial head over to this blog for a good how to.  I painted mine gold, and love how they turned out.

I hung the shelves on the higher side so that top of the hutch cabinet would be more useful, but that also meant I lost out on one shelf, and needed taller decor. I ended up using a 2 tier fruit stand and filed it with glasses, bowls, and some decorative accents and LOVE how it turned out.  It is so functional and cute!

Thanks for checking out our dining room, and be sure to check out the home decor section of my blog for more spaces in the house! I am so glad we went with the bold look and Sam let me take the risk on a dining room with a dark ceiling.  Would you ever do the same?  Be sure to leave me a comment with any questions!

    It is styled beyond perfectly!!! Absolutely love it.

    Also, a while back I did engineer prints for my dining room and since we didn’t have any place local I had to have them shipped to me. There was a note inside that said something along the lines of “engineer prints aren’t supposed to be used for photos” or something kind of snarky like that. I was like oookay then.
