Mid Century Modern Boho dining room
Good day friends! Hope you are all doing well these days. Things are slowly opening up in the south. I know one thing the boys of the house are happy about, are getting haircuts next week HA! I may continue to grow mine out a bit seeing I have gone this long without. I color my own hair so that wasn’t an issue for me.
It’s been a saving grace that we have had the condo to escape to every two weeks. Although nothing was open there either, it was still nice to get away and have a different location and things to look at it. Plus it is nice to sit on the outdoor enclosed deck and look at palm trees with a breeze coming in.
Today I want to share our dining room area. The room is attached to the living room so it is one big open space. I don’t have a carpet under the dining room table because of that reason.
It would seem like carpets too close to one another, and besides the floors are so beautiful, why would I cover them up? I never understood that.
The space is an eclectic mix of new, modern, and vintage pieces. The chairs we scored are a funny story actually. They were a Craigslist find. We drove over an hour away to get them and when we pulled up, I thought we were at a junk yard. From the driveway right up to the garage this fellow had stockpiles of stuff scattered about. It was odd to stay the least. Nice guy though and we were pleasantly surprised when he opened his garage and met all these steel case chairs. We knew they were a good find. Priced typically now at roughly $100.00 per chair. We scored five of them for $200.00. They were dirty and required a little tlc.
My husband special ordered the plastic guards for the bottom. Makes it easier to pull in and out, plus protects the floor from scratches.
The focal piece art was a find on eBay. It is a mix of folk art- contemporary. It is perfect for that wall. We went minimal and I have to say I enjoy the look for a change. I layered the table runners for color and interest. I love color and have to have it in my life. Because we went very light and bright on the walls, the accessories are what pulls it all together. In such a small space, darker walls would look dreary and close it in. Painting the crown molding a darker color really made the space pop. The few friends we have had over that live in the condos, want to do the same. The crown molding is standard in all the units. Each unit has a different floor plan, which is nice as well. You don’t feel like everyone is the same. The diamond shape mirror, Mike found as well at a local thrift shop. It is quite heavy but is amazing to look at and perfect for the dining room space as well.
Remember that pretty shelving unit you see there? I finally have it decorated the way I like. Treasures of teapots and sentimental things, with a little of the beach thrown in with driftwood and seashells. A lot of people ask about that light in the entry. That was a Lowe’s clearance/blow out sale that we scored for $99.00. We have the other coordinating mount lights in our bathrooms. Thrifting, searching, garage sales, craigslist are the fun of it all when it comes to decorating. I would much rather have something old, that means more to me than the even the original owner. We have lots of that going on. You can see our main hub, dining area, is much different.
