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 calledย Distinguished Importsย 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!ย 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… ๐Ÿ™‚

    i love your dinning room table!! Where did you get it?

    • Hi Stephanie! I made it with plans from ana-white. If you go to the projects section you can see some tutorials on how I distress and stain wood which can help you make a decision on finishes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Wicker Emporium no longer carries these chairs. Any other idea where to get something similar. Thank yoU!

    • Sorry I don’t know of anything locally, but I did find something online when someone asked from the US asked a similar guestion, and that was on Overstock.com, but I am not sure they would shipk to Canada. The only other thing I can think of is to check out furniture stores, they might have something.

    love the white vase. Where did you get it?

    • Hi Laura,

      I purchased that at a Canadian store called Wicker Emporium probably three years ago. I love it too!

    • Hi Amanda,

      I actually do not know, they were in the farmhouse when we bought it. Sorry I cannot be more help.
