Just off the living room in the Evergreen house, we created a little dining nook that was the perfect size for a small dining table! I love having dining spaces that are separate from the kitchen but connected to the living spaces. It creates such a casual, livable flow that I really like!
We started with this gorgeous round dining table – I love the two-tone woods and the brass accents! The black chandelier was another fun Amazon find. I like how the black of the chandelier ties into the black of the sunroom walls, the living room sofa and the kitchen countertops. Black can really help tie a space together and keeps the eye moving!
There’s quite a bit going on in the living room and with the adjacent built-ins, so we tried to keep this space low key. I do like how the layered art steals the show. Most of these pieces are available in Juniper Print Shop, but a few are vintage finds. In case you missed the link in the living room reveal, we used Swan Picture Hangers to source these French brass gallery rods to hang our art and mirrors on the plaster walls without putting a million holes in the walls.
This faux maple tree was an awesome and inexpensive find! I like that it’s not a fiddle leaf fig! It’s fun to mix up the tree species from room to room. This one with the small leaves felt perfect for our little dining room! And this short but substantial plant stand was the perfect base for our tree. It added a little height so that the tree felt grounded but the pot itself wasn’t so big that the tree base was swimming, you know?
The linen curtain panels were such a lucky find! They are thick and lined and come with drapery hook tape, which makes them easy to hang in just a few minutes. I’ll be sharing stories in my highlights about how I like to hang curtains, but in general I like to use French rods that return back into the wall instead of finials (these are my very favorite and the ones here are a less expensive version). I prefer to hang my panels with 1″ of extra fabric so the panels just kiss the ground. Instead of grommets or rod pockets, I like to hang my panels using drapery hooks and curtain rings (I skip the clips in favor of hooks!).
As always, we hope you love this space! Let us know if you have any questions! xo
