Dining in Style

I like to eat out, fab hotels and fancy restaurants – What’s not to like?

However buying a house means saving money so for Mr B and me, It’s been a winter of eating ding meals for two in decorators overalls sitting on orange boxes!


Hurray for March and an almost finished Dining Room.  To celebrate I’m posting some before and after pictures of how the dining room now looks.


I took inspiration from my favorite Interior designer Abigail Aherns blog and moved to the dark side! Dark walls add drama, warmth for winter and make a perfect backdrop for lighting, prints, stem wear and your treasures! I mixed my own colours which can be a little daunting but I’d say be brave with it.


Dining room is painted in Wickes paint by mixing Licorice with White to make a dark charcoal.  Living room colour is mixed by using Peacock and Licorice to make a dark teal, floors are Dark Oak throughout.


Hope that you like it as much as we do.  Here’s to stylish dining.
