Beginnings of a Dining Room

I came across these Japanese panels and thought they would be perfect as the focal point of a dining room, over a sideboard or buffet.

Sorry for the dinky picture...the panels are on Overstock for $160, which is a great price for something that will cover so much wall.

Let's paint the walls a whisper pink...something more peachy than red. And then make billowy curtains out of this buffalo check in a beautiful sea green:

If pink is a little much for you, we can also paint a golden tan...something light and pastel. Then we'd place this console under the panels:

And we'd style it with lots of Blanc de Chine, like this urn:

Oh, and we'd need two lamps like these, but I'd switch out the shade for black drum shades.

Or do we think the black drum shades won't contrast enough against the wall panels? Hmmm...

What would you do for a dining table and chairs?


  1. How about either an antique farm table or something reclaimed to throw the unexpected into the mix? Love the screen!!

    1. Ooo, yes! Paired with sleek modern white chairs to play off the Blanc de Chine. I like it!

    I would look for a mid century allegro table (its has the faux bamboo legs and trim) I would collect my chinese chippendale chairs where I could get a price. I would paint the set some shade of azalea and use one of those wonderful thibaut florals with all your above colors on the seats. I like the azalea with the whisper pink.

    1. Woah...that sounds amazing. Love the idea of a pop of azalea.
