The Dining Room Transformation Begins

In decorating our living space, I am starting with the dining area. I have actually come a long way with it already. I purchased the china cabinet shown below, from Crate and Barrel, soon after our wedding to accomodate our gifts. The dining table from Ikea followed, but that's when things stalled. I have been on a crazy hunt for chairs since. I have become extremely picky and can't seem to find what I want for the right price. I'll have a separate post about that soon...

I am in the meantime trying to zero in on the exact color scheme. My mood board for the living area is just too summery, so I am trying to see what I can come up with that will not require repainting the walls but will make the place feel a bit warmer. Here is my first try:

I am going to try bringing in a deeper turquoise as well as a mustard-y yellow. I will keep the pink to a minimum with the flowers only. We'll see if this works or if I'll change my mind yet again!

China cabinet - Crate and Barrel
Dining table - Ikea
Chair - JCPenney
Napinks - Pier 1 and Dwell Studio
Fabric (to be used to upholster chair) - Studio e by Fabric Supplies on Etsy

I love that white round table with the dark hutch and yellow pattern on the fabric. It's going to be a beautiful room!

Hi Arianna, thanks for your comment! I do love the versatility of that ikea table. My wall color right now is that blue on the very top right of the mood board. It's sort of a pool color, so it's very summery and I'm trying to tone it down for winter.
