Airy bohemian dining room


Today is reveal day for the New Year New Room Refresh Challenge. And I’m happy to say my dining room is looking beyond refreshed! There’s a few things I just have to have in every space of my home because they make my soul happy and fill me with energy. Plants are the main one. Something about their life brings me life. I enjoy caring for them, looking at them, living with them. Naturally green ends up being a major color in every space I design but I have also long loved the color pink and it’s various shades because it compliments green so well. Being a lifelong obsessee over the beach and tropical locations, that lust trickles into spaces through prints, wicker and specificallly in this place the wallpaper. I’ve also been infatuated with midcentury furniture since we bought out 1950’s built home. Thrifting always has a place in my heart thanks to a poor childhood and even moreso in my adult life as I’ve dicosvered it to be the best way to find unique, story infused decor. A sense of airiness, a lot of bohemian style, eclectic vibes and a little influence from the trending cali style and that wraps up my dining room!

As is normally the case with these kinds of things, I’ll explain things a bit further later since the post will be so picture heavy. Leave questions and comments in the form at the end of the post so I can make sure I’ve covered everything you’re curious about :)

Once more, before we dive into things, here’s the moodboard I originally shared:

My Airy Bohemian Dining Room

Described as “feels like a jungle” by my husband. I think it has a bit of “cali vibes” going on. My kid likes the carpet.

The Best Is Yet To Come Sign from Target

As a reminder, here’s the weekly work I’d forecasted:

week 1: Clear RoomWallpaperThrift Furniture and Accessories, Rehome/Donate/Sell whatever isn’t staying

week 2: Touch up Paint, Refinish Table, Hang Curtains

  • I ended up not doing any of these things. I found the table on craigslist on a whim and decided it fit the vibe of the space better than refinishing the other table. I also decided last minute against curtains. Once the pieces started coming into the room, I felt like the curtains would take away from what was going in so that idea was nixed. I would cross off touch up paint but I left that task up to my husband because he wanted to help. Unfortunately, and you can probably see it in some of the photos, he didn’t mix the paint well and he let spots drip. So I have to go back in and sand those down, mix the paint properly and go back over those spots. Oh well :)

week 3: Hang ArtworkAssemble Furniture Placement

week 4: Reveal!

future work: Complete Trim Work Project, Restain Floors, Built In Half Walls, Adding: Painting the lower part of the walls. I feel like this space would be perfect with a darker color below the wallpaper.

    Corinna! this is gorgeous! I love the chinoiserie jar and your wallpaper is gorgeous. Loving how it is only a small sliver above the paneling.

    Holy moly this is cool! I LOOOOOOVE the wallpaper above the chair rail. This reminds me of a bed and breakfast we stayed at once. I would instantly feel at home here, and kick back with a coffee. Love it!

    you’ve outdone yourself! it looks amazing! love those modern chairs- the perfect modern clean touch! the paper is perfection and just enough! the peacock chair, mcm cabinet, table… i mean i just love it ALL.

    Hey, my fellow plant lover! Your room is beautiful and I seriously love the wallpaper. It makes such a huge difference! Also very impressed with the shades you’ve installed–love the additional texture. Enjoy your new space!

    That wallpaper is everything!! I’m so digging green lately and I’m crushing hard on that paper! I adore the life and texture you have throughout the space with the fab bold colors! My favorite shot just might be the one of the paper, the cactus art and the chair detail peeking out from the bottom. So simple, but wow, what a statement! Beautiful job! 😉

    Corinna!!! I don’t think the table could have been any more perfect! Major thrift score for sure. I absolutely love the way you hung the wallpaper too. It provides so much interest but the eye doesn’t go crazy because of how much you used. It looks so good.

    What a fun and gorgeous space Corinna! I love that thrifted table you found and it pairs so well with those chairs. Gorgeous wallpaper (we totally have similar taste!). I think all the textures and layering just make the room feel so curated and eclectic and magazine worthy! Listing your kitty with the resources made me giggle.
