To be honest, I’ve never reallly LOVED my dining room. I love little bits and pieces of it, but there were certain spaces that I never found decor that looked right in my space. I thrifted my sideboard and although it has a ton of space to store my fine china, the top of it has always proved to be difficult to decorate given its odd size.
My decor taste has changed in the last 5 years, and although I love my dining room furniture, I really wanted to give it a more transitional update. I wanted to do so as budget friendly as possible, and well frankly, the Target/Studio McGee collection never dissapoints.
I started with the mirror to build the vignette and did a little happy dance when this artwork nexted perfectly in front of it. I flanked the other side with the beautiful brown glass vase and elevated it slightly with an old book, then filled it with dried wheat branches for dimension.
Once I had my anchor pieces, it was time to accessorize. I loved the wooden chain and pumpkin. I actually had other ideas for these pieces, but they just nested perfectly here. Next, I fell in LOVE with this candle and match vessels from the Old Flame Candle Co. This was a splurge, but I love that I can send it back to be refilled and it becomes the candle that keeps on living.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a dining room refresh without a little seasonal decor! When I was shopping at Target, I came across these pretty, rustic ceramic pumpkins. Josh lost my Halloween tote in the abyss that is our Christmas corner, so a festive fall tablescape it was! I paired it with some vases, both new and old, and some antique candle holders. I tossed in bunches of silk mums from the craft store and… voila! Even my wine fridge is warm and cozy with my peace plant in a warm toned basket. Can I just say how much I love that warm tones are back!
