Here is the before...
Caprock Vintage which I stumbled upon one random afternoon. I had been scrolling and scrolling to find the perfect rug and always came back to this post for inspiration. The rug was perfect, I loved the colors and everything about it and was so bummed it was vintage. Well come to find out, the couple's home that was featured in the Design Sponge article owns Caprock Vintage and had it for sale! (!!!!!!) I was so surprised and love how it adds to our space.
We are still using the hanging fruit basket I made and I think I'll keep it up for a while…it is nice to have a designated spot for produce. I think it would be awesome to have a built-in bench under the window with extra storage and pillows!
these gorgeous ones from Anthropologie!
We eventually would like to have a custom table built in a natural wood to replace this one, but until then the black is a nice neutral and doesn't bother me.
Isn't the power of taking down a few walls, tearing up carpet to reveal beautiful floors and adding your own personal touch amazing? I'm excited to see how this space evolves over time.
Since posting this, I painted our back wall black and it made a major change! Now I just need one more bentwood chair before I paint them and we are going to commission a friend to make us a new dining table. I love how much our home changes over time with small tweaks.
