Coastal Interiors Dining Room with Lighting Alternatives

Dining, Fave Picks, FashionAnneke McConnell

When I approach design, I see a space as a puzzle and a fun challenge to bring all the pieces together in a way that is unique to the needs, style, and budget of an individual or family.

Of all the pieces coming together, I have to admit that LIGHTING is hands down my favorite! It's like the jewelry of a room and has the power to instantly and solely change the vibe of a room.

Today I pulled together a more "moody" dining room with a darker traditional rug, rustic wood table (I LOVE the base on this!), and darker metal elements.  Then see the three lighting options and how they would change the look of the design!

This dining room design is a bit of a stray from my white, bright, navy, gray and somewhat modern preference, but I'd say it's the Pacific Northwest girl in me that's coming through. ;-)


Which lighting would you pick?

I hope you love enjoy today's design - thank you for sharing the love!  As for fashion today, a head's up that Neiman Marcus is having a HUGE sale of 25%-40%, some of these being on pre-season sale.  Below are just a few items that stood out to me that you may love too!

I'm personally drawn to the tropical floral and flowy tops, dresses, and staple shoes and handbags.  I'd love to know if you find something you love!

Also, if you're a Nordstrom shopper, they are having triple points through Sunday evening! Yay for that!   I can't wait for this cute and casual navy swing tee to arrive and finally took the plunge with this handbag. (review coming) :-)

On a personal note, if you have a moment and feel inclined, please pray for our little guy who was home sick today.  It's never fun and of course it had to hit just before his birthday AND Mother's Day! Thanks so much!
