E-Design: NDJ's Dining Room & Kitchen

Last week I shared the living room design I did for my friend's new house (catch up on that post here).   Today I'm sharing the kitchen and dining room design.  The entire first floor has an open floor plan so it was extra important to make sure one "room" flows nicely into the next.  Sticking with a palette of blue, gray, beige, and white and a "rustic, comfortable" style, here's the mood board that I put together.

My friend's uncle is building her this awesome farm table that will seat 6-8 people using reclaimed wood. NDJ really likes the dining chairs from Crate&Barrel (#5) and I do too.  I wanted to add another texture/color, so she's going to pair them with 2 seagrass end chairs from Target (#2).  The barstools for the kitchen island will match these chairs.  The cabinets in the kitchen are wood-toned and a little dated, but NDJ wants to keep them as is for now.  I suggested she paint the island white and add bead board to give it a bit of an update.  She also plans on replacing the cabinet hardware.  They already own the great bar cabinet from Crate&Barrel and I suggested they do a small gallery wall above it.  Blue/Gray burlap curtains finish off the pretty bay window.   

Here's the floor plan of the dining room.  The kitchen is located past the dining area and the formal living room is just before it.

Here's the elevation of the dining space:

Next week, I'll share the family room design.

  1. Love it! I think I now have a term for my style, "rustic comfortable". I wish I had an uncle who could build furniture for me!

  2. Pretty! I love how you are working with what they have. And those seagrass chairs are fabulous =)
