Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post, but was given 4 drapery panels by Lacefield Designs. All opinions, thoughts, and images are my own.
Since we have moved into this house almost 3 years ago, our dining room has gone through a few transformations and updates. I was actually going to take a stroll down memory lane with you, visiting all of its changes, but there were honestly too many to just supplement this post; they need a post all of their own! My name is Cassie and I like change. But one thing that has remained the same is the lack of window treatments… I have never found the curtains that would complete this room, until I came across the amazing panels that Lacefield Designs offers. Lacefield Designs was set up as a vendor at the Haven Conference, and I was immediately enamored by their beautiful textiles, especially the blues, indigos, aquas, and their more ethnic feel prints.
My favorite drapery panels that Lacefield Designs offers are the Marrakesh in indigo! These were the perfect choice for completing the look of our dining room, which is moody, coastal, vintage, and eclectic.
Aren’t they gorgeous? Before I show you the entire room, let me remind you of where we were the last time you saw it on my Spring tour…
So, as you will see, the curtains hanging created a snowball effect- I moved the sideboard to the long window, moved our old oak secretary we use as a bar, and also added some new to me black bentwood arm chairs as the head chairs (for now!). Let me also add how hard it was to get pictures without the dogs in it in some way shape or form…. this is their hangout!
Here you can see where the dining room is open to the kitchen.
The sideboard moved to the double window, and after I rearranged that I wondered why I hadn’t before? It was meant to be there. And check out the amazing boat I found… I believe it’s a Carl Jere but it’s been painted (not by me!). Maybe one day I will strip that paint. For now, I just love that it doesn’t block the view, and suits my moody, eclectic, nautical room perfectly!
The funny thing is I walked by this boat the first time, unwilling to pay for it. I was with a friend who rarely shops with me, and she told me I had to get it…. I am so glad I listened to her.
I also found not one but two federal mirrors recently and I hung them on the wall on either side of the buffet. And if you look in the mirror closely enough you can see me taking the picture, and also Emmy and her Gram Pam snuggling and looking at American Girl items online.
On the other side of the room, the new Lacefield panels frame out the insulator succulent planters I made. I love that the colors you see here- aqua, white, navy, gray, natural- all flow perfectly with what is going on in the kitchen.And just check out those Lacefield Designs panels close up- they are so luxurious and well made.
And of course on the wall opposite of this is my nautical gallery wall which has some new additions as well. Can you believe I found that huge painting with the pretty frame for $5? Seriously people. I ran before the seller could change his mind, maniacally cackling the whole way home!
And now just so you can see what I was dealing with while taking these photos…. Jake and Catcher were roaming all over, Catcher annoying Jake, I am sure. Here’s a rare moment with both of them sitting still.
And of course, shortly after I finished taking pictures….
Thank you so much to Lacefield Designs for providing me with these gorgeous panels. I am so happy to finally have the the window treatments that complete this room and look forward to hosting my first Thanksgiving in this house this Fall!
