As we slowly finish each room in our house, I've been sharing little tidbits here on Design Fixation. (Although I use the word "finish" lightly... nothing's ever truly finished, is it?). So today I thought I'd show you some photos of our dining room. I've shared the sources at the bottom of the post as well.
One of the things I love most about this house is all the character that comes along with its age... so the floors in this room had me at hello. When we first ate in this room with Mike's parents, my mother-in-law-to-be commented that it felt like a cozy pub - so we went with that vibe, and filled it with darker wood tones and less color than the rest of the house.
The accent wall was there when we bought it, and it was the first thing that caught my eye when I saw the real estate listing online. We added the gold convex mirror and sconces, along with an Anywhere Fireplace insert for some ambiance since the original fireplace is no longer working.
We love to mix up cocktails on the weekends and experiment with new recipes. We've accumulated lots of fun booze thanks to Mike's job in the wine and liquor industry. I'm into whiskey drinks these days.
We found a vintage map of our town from the mid 1800's and our house is on it! We framed it and hung it over the chest of drawers. According to public record, the original section of our house (including this room) was built in 1830. I love looking at the worn floors and wondering about all the stories that accompany each scratch and dent.
Thanks for checking out our dining room! The sources for most of the furniture and accents are linked below. To see more of our house, head over here. More rooms coming soon!
