My New Favourite Room.

Jenky and I moved into a new house at the end of April and it feels like we have been here for ages already! As soon as we had the keys we began a mission to whip this little house into shape and we are very nearly there! The latest room to be transformed was the dining room and i LOVE it. Seeing as we both did creative degrees, we're really keen to keep on trend and style each room individually.

The dining room is quite a small room providing a through route from the kithen to the living room and therefore any ideas we had needed to allow for this contant movement in and out. We have a beautiful diding table that we acquired from my parents which i have grown up with. I love this and feel like a bit of them are here every time i sit down to eat which is lovely as they live a few hours away.

We had two chairs and two stools but wanted a few more so we could have people over to eat. So we asked around and got two lovely old wooden chairs from jenky's auntie which we swiftly sanded down and painted and they look so on trend and just stunning! Its amazing what a lick of paint can do!

We went for a zesty colour scheme too with our feature wall painted 'Luscious Lime'. It ties in with the Orla Keily wallpaper we've just put in the living room and so creates a continuity throughout the house. The curtains are beautifully transluscent giving an extra hint of colour whilst still allowing the light through from the conservatory. Now im dying to go out and buy some lovely citrus coloured vases and maybe a plant or table for in the corner! I love styling interiors, it's never ending but i love it.
