A Look Inside Our Dining Room

Friday, September 15, 2017

We decided (yet again) that we needed to mix a few things up in our dining room.

Up until June, our "dining room" was more like an awkward sitting room, with two big arm chairs that no longer seemed to fit our style (mostly due to the scratch marks on the cushions from an incident that occurred on Valentines Day 2014 when Harlow decided to hide a large chunk of French bread in them.) Never leave a loaf of bread around Harlow. He will eat half of it on the spot, then hide the rest for a rainy day.

After the chairs we had a table that almost worked, but it ended up not being the same color of wood as all of our other furniture. Which brings me to today and the newest table we just received from Compass Modern. And now I'm going to show you three different photos of said table because I love it that much and would like to share my joy with you.




I don't know when I became the type of person to say something like, "I am obsessed with this dining room table," but that's who I am now.  I'm obsessed, guys. I won't even pretend to hide it. The overall quality, the finish on the wood, the shape, I love it all.

This was my first time shopping with Compass Modern, but as someone who is always on the hunt for nice modern/mid century inspired pieces, I am very very impressed! They cover it all with bigger pieces like beds and sofas, and also smaller items like throw pillows and wall art. The shipping was quick and easy and their customer service was awesome, as well.

Compass Modern is not paying me to write this, but I am super fortunate in that they gave me the chance to browse their site and choose a piece to be sent to share with all of you- which took me about ten days to decide on because there was so much to choose from, and so many things that I loved.

With the brown table and brown hutch, we knew we needed to add some color to this area, so we settled on the most colorful rug we could find. It's the Belini rug, also from Compass Modern.  It's very vibrant in person and took some getting used to after the dull grey rug we originally had, but I think it's grown on me!

It's Harlow tested and Harlow approved (meaning under the table is his new favorite spot to chill.)

And now for a hutchdate. LOLS. Get it? I'm sure you do.



This was hard. But I tried my best. I had help from a stylist at Anthro, scoured Pinterest pics, and then said okay I'm done. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. Could it be better? Yes. Could it be worse? Probably. Should I stop asking myself questions? Definitely.

My favorite item on here is for sure the floral cheese board. So if you need to get someone a frilly gift (or you need to style a hutch) I would suggest it!

And now to show you a few more different angles of this room because I'm worried you haven't seen enough already.



All that we're missing is a fun new light fixture.

Well that and some table decor, of course. But that's a beast I'm not quite ready to tackle. Right now let's just focus on the beauty of the wood. *resist the urge to use a Michael Scott joke here, please.*

Long story short, I'm a really big fan of Compass Modern. And I also really miss Michael Scott. Have a good weekend, everyone! And if you have table-styling advice, I'm all ears!

  3. Mid century modern is great. Since you have so much going on on the hutch and walls, you don't want to over-complicate and busy-up the table. I wld just use a table liner and a few simple place settings, just mats and napkins. No need for chargers or anything. Lookin good!

  7. I love it! I love the mid-century look. My mom can't get over that it's so in style right now and decided to tell me how much of it she "threw out" when they cleaned out my grandmother's house. Whaaaaaaaaat?!

  10. My name is Debra Jaime and here is a testimony on what Dr.divine has done for me. I have been seeing my X for the past 4years, we have been off and on in our relationship, he doesn’t trust me because his heart is so damaged from his previous relationship. I thought that I have found my soul mate when we first met, but I found out that he doesn’t love me the way I do because of his past experience. He tries to get close to me and then pullout and keep on contacting his X’s which made me have doubts about our future. He keep making excuses and gradually withdrawing himself. I love him so much and his parents love me too, they told me that I am the best person that he has ever had. I know that he has been hurt and unhappy man, but I want to help him. He is living in bondage and always troubled before we broke-up. I sourced for help until I was told to contact Dr.divine. I explained all to Doc. why he should bring him back. Thanks to Doc. for confirming my request and seeing that we are perfect match before casting the spell on us. It’s all good now and he is back after the spell. I don’t know how much I can thank this great Doc but I hope this testimony can change someone life for good. Contact him via his email: gifthomespelltemple@gmail.com
