Airy bohemian dining room


Today is reveal day for the New Year New Room Refresh Challenge. And I'm happy to say my dining room is looking beyond refreshed! We've been on a month long quest to refreshing this space into a global bohemian dining room and I'd say we have definitely gotten there. I had a lot of help from some epic pieces I had found thrifting that totally inspired the whole space. Let me show you how the whole space has come together.

Special thanks to Stephanie of Casa Watkins Living for pulling together and inviting me to partake in this New Year New Room Refresh Challenge. It really puts a great jump start on my year and I love seeing what the other bloggers create in their spaces. Make sure to check out their links at the bottom of this post.
There's a few things I just have to have in every space of my home because they make my soul happy and fill me with energy. Plants are the main one. Something about their life brings me life. I enjoy caring for them, looking at them, living with them. Naturally green ends up being a major color in every space I design but I have also long loved the color pink and it's various shades because it compliments green so well. Being a lifelong obsessed over the beach and tropical locations, that lust trickles into spaces through prints, wicker and specificallly in this place the wallpaper. I've also been infatuated with mid century furniture since we bought out 1950's built home. Thrifting always has a place in my heart thanks to a poor childhood and even moreso in my adult life as I've discovered it to be the best way to find unique, story infused decor. A sense of airiness, a lot of bohemian style, eclectic vibes and a little influence from the trending cali style and that wraps up my dining room!

As is normally the case with these kinds of things, I'll keep the text to a minimum since this will be so picture heavy. Leave questions and comments in the form at the end of the post so I can make sure I cover everything you're curious about :)

Once more, before we dive into things, here's the mood board I originally shared:


My Airy Bohemian Dining Room

Described as "feels like a jungle" by my husband, I think it has a bit of "cali vibes" going on. My kid likes the carpet.

As a reminder, here's the weekly work I'd forecasted:

week 1:
Clear Room,
Wallpaper,
Thrift Furniture and Accessories, Rehome/Donate/Sell whatever isn’t staying

week 2: Touch up Paint, Refinish Table, Hang Curtains
  • I ended up not doing any of these things. I found the table on craigslist on a whim and decided it fit the vibe of the space better than refinishing the other table. I also decided last minute against curtains. Once the pieces started coming into the room, I felt like the curtains would take away from what was going in so that idea was nixed. I would cross off touch up paint but I left that task up to my husband because he wanted to help. Unfortunately, and you can probably see it in some of the photos, he didn't mix the paint well and he let spots drip. So I have to go back in and sand those down, mix the paint properly and go back over those spots. Oh well :)
week 3:
Hang Artwork,
Assemble Furniture Placement

week 4: Reveal!

future work: Complete Trim Work Project, Restain Floors, Adding: Curtains and Curtain Rods, Desk Area On Wall Not Pictured.

  7. That wallpaper is everything!! I'm so digging green lately and I'm crushing hard on that paper! I adore the life and texture you have throughout the space with the fab bold colors! My favorite shot just might be the one of the paper, the cactus art and the chair detail peeking out from the bottom. So simple, but wow, what a statement! Beautiful job! ;)

  8. Corinna!!! I don't think the table could have been any more perfect! Major thrift score for sure. I absolutely love the way you hung the wallpaper too. It provides so much interest but the eye doesn't go crazy because of how much you used. It looks so good.

  10. What a fun and gorgeous space Corinna! I love that thrifted table you found and it pairs so well with those chairs. Gorgeous wallpaper (we totally have similar taste!). I think all the textures and layering just make the room feel so curated and eclectic and magazine worthy! Listing your kitty with the resources made me giggle.
