Mood Board: Katie’s Dining Space

Back with another mood board today! Get your own personalized mood board here 🙂

Here’s what Kaite had to say about her dining space:

“The room measures about 155” by 148” and the window sits in a little ~12” bump out.  Oh and there’s a tray ceiling. This space should really be a dining room.  We would like to have more adult-type dinners and this would definitely be the space for that.  It shouldn’t be too formal as that’s not really our style but should feel welcoming, approachable, not in any way stuffy.   I don’t have china or anything that’s a must for storing/finding a home. Also for some background, we’re looking to spruce up most of the rooms in our house with thoughts that we might want to sell and move in the not too distant future.  So instead of investing a ton of blood, sweat, & tears right now and doing something quirky in the space we’re looking to make it look really sharp & put-together so it will show well when we try to sell it without feeling like we’ve lost out on a lot of time/$$ that we’re leaving in the house.  

I’m struggling here b/c if all I was doing was describing my taste in colors I would probably say walls/bigger pieces more neutrals but still some color (maybe even calm) but definitely with contrast and pops of color for some personality. I think what we like about the space in the inspiration pic is the neutral colors, bold light fixture(s), high contrast white trim, simple-ish design, feels warm/family/inviting vs formal, bold, stuffy. Wouldn’t mind if there was an element with a bit more color.  Maybe a pop of red?  Maybe it’s some art?  

The only DR furniture we have is my parents old table.  I wouldn’t mind repurposing that if possible to save $$.  I would also love to try DIY something since the table in the inspiration picture seems farmhouse-ish.  I don’t mind perusing craigslist or unfinished furniture places too.

And here’s what I came up with!

Note: As some of you may have noticed, I did not include links to the products within the mood board. Unfortunately, I’ve made the choice, based on several reasons, to no longer provide them here on the blog. As much as I’d love to, providing links a second time is extremely time consuming. HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean you won’t have access to sources! I create Pinterest boards specific to each and every mood board that I create. You can simply hop on over and scroll to find any product you may be interested in! Here’s the direct link to Katie’s Living Space!
