BSHT Fall Home Tour 2015 {Dining Room Reveal}


BSHT 2015

Happy first day of fall to you, and welcome to Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours Fall 2015!  How’s that for an intro?  If you are here from Style Your Senses, welcome!  Actually, I’m surprised you were able to leave Mallory’s site.  Pure genius over there.  MAJOR fashion and home decor goodness going on all day every day.

Lindsay from The Buffalo Styling Co. hosts this blogger home tour event several times a year, and when she asked me to participate this fall, I was beyond honored, and then a bit of panic set in.  You see, I shared our fall home tour with another group a few weeks ago and that had our living and master bedroom which is 3/4 of our house.  BSHT was the motivation I needed to finish our dining room that has never been shared on the web (rightfully so).

The dining room was inspired by this wall mural by Anewall.  I framed the mural for a major focal point (it’s 6′ x 7′).  It was the starting point of the room, and the rest of the space revolved around it.  The mural set the tone – moody (what’s new), rich and bold.  I’m all about those 3 adjectives.  I wish I could say those 3 words described ME, but sadly, I’m not that cool.

I’ve been so against black in the home, but lately I can’t get enough.  Clearly I got enough in our dining room.

The chairs are covered in Tonic Living’s velvet oxblood and the rug is thrifted.

Breckenridge spiced rum with a side of apple for a small fall touch, anyone?

To add a bit of fall to the mix, I added some untraditional (yet traditional) decor to the brass trunk.  This trunk serves as an extra surface space in the dining room because there’s not room for a console, buffet or cabinet.  (The fridge opens two feet to the right of the trunk.)  {Another side note – if we owned this house, those closet (laundry room) doors would be gone.  Because we don’t, I added some Anthro knobs and called it a day.}

  1. The wall mural is absolute perfection! And I love the velvet fabric from Tonic Living (doesnt she carry the best selections!) love how the fabric perfectly spiced up your dining room chairs….such a pretty space!

  2. The floral is EVERYTHING! I am in love! I also love seeing how the deep berries and greens are trending again in a new fresh way 🙂 Just love it Claire! You are such a talent! xo

  3. Hello gorgeous!!! I mean….that velvet though. I also love that you added pretty knobs to the closet doors. It adds such an intentional touch to a temporary situation. This space is just so glam and beautiful.
