HERE, I knew I wanted something fresh... not sage, not minty, but a nice medium green. With all the white below the chair rail, as well as the linen upholstered dining bench and chairs, I knew that I could go a little more saturated with the green as well. As much as I love neutral interiors, I just need some color in my life right now :)
I chose Sherwin William's Ryegrass for the walls and it really is a great green...despite these poor representations of the color! It looks way better in person!
The rustic light fixture was a find in High Point for around $50. I'll swap the old one back in it's place when we move out and maybe I'll find a new home for this one later down the road.
I also hung a couple of breadboards and an antique hay fork up on the walls for more of the rustic look...
But one of my favorite things in the room, besides the curtains, is the inexpensive tree botanicals that I framed up and the chunky picture frame my husband made from old, salvage moulding. I had a pair of these barnwood frames that I've had butterfly prints in, but I felt like I needed something different with the tree fabric...
I found tons of great copyright free botanical prints at Vintage Printables and picked out two Autumn tree images and had them printed for only $8 a piece at Costco. The paper quality is great and with that inexpensive price, I can afford to switch the prints up with the season... I already have the winter prints ready to go! One thing to remember is that most of the images are copied from books so there can be faded words, ink, etc in the background. I think it just makes them have more character...
As I mentioned, I'll be changing these out for the seasons and I have plans for that large frame that I'll be sharing soon!
I hope the details of the dining room have helped a bit! I had a few inquiries about the curtain fabric and even though I purchased it from a local outlet, I did find it online HERE in case you're interested.
