Updating the Dining Room- One Room Challenge

After taking a break from blogging for several months I have decided to participate in the One Room Challenge at Calling It Home. The challenge is to complete a one room project in six weeks and post progress reports online. I will be redecorating our formal dining room. dining room before 1

There is nothing wrong with the room, I am just ready for a change after 29 years! All of the furniture will stay and the rug is staying for now but may be changed later.

I will be changing the brass chandelier and I will be changing the chair seats.

The window treatments will also be changed.

The first thing to go will be the wallpaper from the Victoria and Albert collection and the yellow Sugar Cookie paint color.

My inspiration for the room is this fabric. It is the Malawi pattern by P Kaufmann in the Hibiscus colorway. The tree branches blend well with the new foyer wallpaper.

The colors also blend well with the settee in the foyer. I am excited to get started and hope you will follow along. Be sure to click over to Calling It Home to see lots of other great projects.

You can click on the photo below if you would like to see how I updated the foyer last year.

I am also linking to Thoughts of Home on Thursday at Decor to Adore and at Poofing the Pillows and to Grace at Home at Imparting Grace. I always enjoy browsing around at these linky parties and I’m sure you will too.

Have a great week!
