Help with dining room...

February 23, 2013
I need something on this wall to finish the dining room. I was thinking about a shelf, picture or even a floor mirror (saw that idea in west elm's catalogue).
Thanks for any suggestions!

I think a painting would look great, particularly one that repeats the warm tones of your dining set. This piece, while perhaps not your style, has just a dash of the warm brown to reference your table. I would consider this concept when deciding on what piece to put there.

Great pick by Manon Floreat, that would compliment the wall color very well !

Love the dining chairs and the wall color. Agree w/Dytecture, great pick by Manon on the art.

What do you think about changing the light?

Any chance you could post a couple of more pictures showing different views of the room?

A drum light with a cream shade would be lovely and contemporary. Could have crystals on it for some bling.

Hi, artwork is the best answer here. One large piece will have a more modern effect and a grouping of smaller pieces will render the room more Traditional. To add height to the room use a piece of art that allows some vacant wall space above it. Then hang a second but smaller piece above it. This will add the illusion of height. Last, if I were doing this room I would find a chandalier with more volume. A pendant with an upturned bowl or a Transitional chandalier.

A work of art giving a nod to mid-century would be wonderful. I suggest Marc Lambrechts at www.arthaus-sf.com

Thank you guys for all your ideas!
I will defiantly look into a pendant light!
I was wondering if you have any other suggestions for art work from somewhere like ballard designs or world market, places like that! (I do like the horse pictures from ballard designs but not sure if it will go in this room)
Thanks!

I like the room very much! What about the hanging capiz pendant in white from west elm?

The room has a lot of masculine features and the delicate capiz pendant would be beautiful! I am eyeing the grey pendant but I think the white would work best in your dining room. Good luck!

Hi, I love what you did so far but it is like dressing up you have the clothes on but now you ned the jewelry, nice pics even nature if that is what you like I would change the area rug with some colour in it then pic a colour from that and decorate your walls and table a runner (with colour) and vases a side table under a window etc. I do not mind the light fixture but the drum style would be beautiful. I would add some reds or rusts to the room to pull your wood in.. Great start love your curtains

Welcome Home designs
I agree with the above post. A more interesting area rug will help dress up the room and also give you the inspiration for your art and accessories.

Hi sajl2011 and all!

sajl2011 - sorry I didn't get back here b/f - it has been a busy weekend (celebrated my "21st" ;) birthday). We carry wall art and pendant lights/chandeliers at our store. You can browse around via the link below but I will also search today for some recommendations. Of course, Ballard Designs and World Market are great stores too.

Hope everyone has a great Monday!
