i only just recently updated the dining nook a bit, but i wasn’t super happy with it and recently decided i’m going to redo some spaces in my house since i’m never moving at this point and i might as well love my house now! so a very easy corner to do first was the dining nook.
all that i changed out was the accessories and i left the furniture as is, but somehow it feels like a whole new space! and so much more my current taste than it was.
the striped bolster pillows made the biggest difference, i was so excited when they went on sale recently and that they were so long i wouldn’t need to get anything custom made but they would really make the space feel a little more designed.
i changed out the wall art and the light as well — the light has actually never really been centered over the table and i finally had it fixed and i’m just so happy with the changes!
i still want to get roman shades here and i think that will warm up the space so much more, but i was too excited to not share the room now! someday i’ll have my dream formal dining actual room instead of nook, but for now — i’m really happy.
and for those who are new here, i have more info about how i did the built-ins with ikea dressers in this old post. (wow this corner has come a long way since then!)
i will say that if i had to do it again, i would use the wider drawers versus the smaller ones, they’d hold a lot more large platters and just be a lot more useful i think.
