Some of you may recall that Kyle installed our original chandelier over the island in out kitchen. We were so thrilled with the work he did that we hired him for what I'll refer to as "round two."
I decided to order the exact same chandelier that is in our kitchen for our dining room as well. Since our entire second floor is one long, large space, it felt more cohesive to have the same look in the lighting. Here's how it turned out:
And now, to the curtains. As you may have noticed, our dining room doesn't have curtains. We had to return half of the curtain hardware and fabric we got because we realized that the curtains we got for the dining room just weren't going to work there because of the spacing. Also, the dining room window is really beautiful and it's on the side of the house, so no one can see inside and it brings a ton of light in. So for now, the plan is to leave it bare.
We did have or gorgeous Thai Silk curtains installed on our kitchen window and we are thrilled with how it turned out. It really look very elegant, light and airy. They're still a little wrinkled on the bottom, but I love them!
As a reminder, here is what the kitchen window looked like before with our Ready Blinds:
and here is the window now...
It's amazing how much elegance an extra chandelier and curtains can add to your space. Considering we were using $10 Ready Blinds from Home Depot on our window previously, the curtains are a massive upgrade.
Dining Table- Restoration Hardware Flatiron Collection, 72 inches
Dining Chairs- Home Source Houston- Lawford Chair
Miranda Trifle Bowl- Crate & Barrel
Faux Hydrangea Stem- similar at Pottery Barn
Some of you mentioned in my comments on my dining room post that I should change the way the chairs are set. I personally like having chairs at either end of the table versus having two on each side for the everyday. If we ever need to seat more people at the table, we can move one of the chairs to one side and use the bench in our kitchen on the other side.
Thank you for reading and have a great week!
