For our new house, our current dining room table will not fit so we had to come up with another style and vision for the room. In the dining room, I want a French country cottage feel with a mix of different chairs and fabrics that still fits in with the beach cottage vibe.
To center the room, I found this chandelier that looks a little distressed with a white wash and I think it is perfect in our space. We do not have high ceilings so we needed a certain length and this one is pretty without being overly polished. A round pedestal table is nice for a small beach cottage. Ideally, a round to oval table would be great since you can add the leaf to extend the table for extra guests (beautiful options here and here). I also love the beadboard/shiplap backing and the color combination on this white storage cabinet. It is exactly what I was looking for and will look great with my collection of tea cups and white china.
As for art, which is always tricky for me to get just right, I want something timeless and colorful. I think I would like an abstract sunset or ocean waves painting. Then again I like this print as well. You will have to wait to see what we select for artwork. Now all I need to do is set the table and add some fresh flowers. Who is coming over for dinner?!
