Cresthaven Dining & Kitchen

Last week I shared the Living Room I did for the model home and this week I'm sharing the Dining and Kitchen area. Here is the mood board I create for the space. 



Our budget for the dining room and kitchen was $1,000. I think I went over about $100 on this room. If we had been able to afford it I would have loved to have done curtains in here as well and add more accessories and a backsplash to the kitchen. I think for $1,000 I did the best I could with this space. 


Rug: Safavieh Dhurries Light Blue Rug from Wayfair | I actually scored this rug for a little cheaper on Joss & Main. 


My intern Kayley found these lamps on Craigslist for $25 each. I had the fabric from the living room pillows matched at Lowes to get that great salmon color. I painted them myself using this tutorial. I tried and tried to find new shades but we ran out of time. I find that finding the perfect lamp shade is sometimes impossible. So we made do with what we had. 

Sideboard: Isala Sideboard from Ikea



Coral Artwork: Z Gallerie I don't think it's available anymore. We got them for $79 each. 

Whale: Z Gallerie 



Orchid: Pier 1

We got the table on sale at DownEast for $175! It's originally from Pottery Barn. 

Chairs: Ingolf Chair from Ikea


The barstools were a great find on Craigslist. We got them for $15 each! 



Rug: Kite Kilim Rug from West Elm | We scored this rug for a great deal on sale a few months ago. 


Urchin: Donated by Honeymoon at Home


Chalkboard Jars: Pier 1

  20. Yes ... why are decent lamp shades so easy to find? So many ugly lampshades at the stores ... so few cute ones. Target, listen up!!

  21. What is the wall color?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love the colour you chose for the walls! Palladian blue! It is a calm colour that's for sure. I feel inspired by this room as it's not totally decked out but simple and classic! I bought a home and cannot afford to renovate but feel inspired after looking at your post - now I can use this to inspire my design for my livingroom/dining room! Thank you so much!
