I am so excited to finally share with you our dining room reveal! In partnership with Frame It Easy, we have completely transformed this space into a moody, cocktail lounge type of vibe. Today, I’m sharing with you the design from start to finish, including everything you want to know about our new frames.
When designing our dining room, I knew right away that I wanted to make an oversized gallery wall in here. This wall is huge in-person and right now it’s a blank empty white wall. My overall esthetic that I’m going for is a 1960’s / cigar lounge type of vibe. Think jazz music, Frank Sinatra, martinis.
Finding the PERFECT paint color
I spent weeks trying to find the perfect dark green with hints of blue paint color. We already have Iron Ore by Sherwin Williams in our living room and I wanted something that would compliment it, but also have a mind of its own in our dining room. Then I found it – Mount Etna by Sherwin Williams! This color had everything I was looking for and wait until you see the final look.
After I found the perfect paint color, I had to find the perfect frames to be hung on the wall. Frame It Easy has been doing custom framing since 2004 and made the entire process simple and affordable. Here is my exact order:
My Frame It Easy Order:
- Art Size: 10″ x 10″
- Outside Frame Size: 27 3/16″ x 27 3/16″
- Style: Ashford, in Satin Black
- Matting: 8 1/2″ Smooth White (White Core)
- Cover: Clear Acrylic
- Backing: Acid Free Foamcore
Frame It Easy made it very easy for me to design my frames and they were delivered to my door in a matter of days. All I had left to do was figure out which photos of my family to add.
Once the dining room was finished painting, my husband measured the wall to hang our frames. Once we hung the first couple of frames the process went pretty smoothly. I also purchased new curtains from Ikea. The ones pictured below are the Ritva curtain panels and I added 2 panels on each side to give a fuller look.
After I purchased the perfect sideboard to go in the space, it is finally time for the big reveal…
A big thank you to Frame It Easy, for partnering with me on the design of our dining room. I cannot say enough good things about their frames. The quality is outstanding and they were delivered within a matter of days (not weeks, like some places). We will cherish these frames for years to come.
