I hope you are all having a positive day, and are enjoying some nice Spring weather where ever you are!
Today I wanted to share a little update on my dining room. It’s been a while since I did any sort of update in this space, and that is partially because it is such a small area – so it can sometimes be a challenge to decorate. With a space such as this I can only really decorate the walls, table, and floor.
You may have noticed that my walls were pretty bare in this area… (as is the floor, but I have yet for find the perfect rug) that all stems down to the fact that I am incredibly picky when it comes to artwork… As you should be! Your walls are such an elemental part of a design scheme, and can change the entire feel of your space.
So when I came across this picture of some coastal artwork from a company called Distinguished Imports who offered to send me some of their products, I knew I found just what I wanted for my walls:
Coastal and neutral. Me through and through.
SO off went the order for the four paintings… It took over a month for them to get here – as the prints had to be made – but that was clarified beforehand. Being in Canada I was just happy to discover that the duty fees weren’t outrageous. For the four photos it came to $35.38. If you’ve ever been presented with one of those bills, sometimes it’s not very pretty!
When they finally arrived I opened the box right then & there and proceeded to hang them. (Does anyone else get this excited over mail?) The frames were absolutely gorgeous and covered in glossy glass.
and I mean glossy! Look. There’s my mantel in the reflection!
The artwork is by Nantucket artist Kolene Spicher. To be honest I was torn between these photos and the beautiful bird paintings also found on their website… you know me, it’s if it’s coastal or birds I love it!
Adding artwork in here not only completes the room, but it helps to fill the room with a bit of my personality… that’s the best kind of decorating, don’t you think?
Now to go buy more shells to fill those vases… 🙂
Have a beautiful day!
