i’m a big fan of wallpaper accent walls and this dining room from rebekah at orange poppy is a great example. just a few hours of pasting and hanging and you’re left with a wall full of color and pattern. i love the new blue and green palette rebekah decided to go with- especially that blue hutch. so cute. click here to check out rebekah’s shop and here to check out her blog.
Basic Steps: In the dining room, we tore out a faux stone wall and replaced it with sheetrock, primed and painted the walls (Behr Ultra Pure White), sanded and refinished the floors, switched out the overhead light, and replaced all of the electrical outlets. We still have to paint the radiators and finish the cushion for the window seat. Tape your to-do list to the front door, line up good babysitters, always have cold beer on hand, and don’t listen to the naysayers who stop by to comment on your project and drink all of your cold beer.
While it’s certainly true that dark, dramatic rooms can be breathtaking, I must admit that more often than not, I support anyone’s decision to lighten up a room. I accept that this feeling is probably biased by the cave-like apartment in which I currently live, but it seems right to say it, nonetheless. Blair’s dining room is a perfect example of a lovely lightening. Taking inspiration from Scandinavian design, Blair decided to break up the all-black furniture with a fresh coat of white paint on the walls to give the room a more peaceful and cheery ambiance. I love that she left a few dark elements in the room and that she brought in some bright bits of color and pattern. The new room looks artful, modern and beautifully bright. Great work, Blair!
