trending. dining in in style.

Ever since the middle ages, the concept of sitting down at a large table to consume your meals with friends and family has been a stable across the world. But as the need for such formal spaces to carry out an everyday occurrence dwindles, the contemporary use of the dining room becomes more playful. And although I can barely fit a two person dining table into my one bedroom apartment, I can’t help but constantly gawk over how creative people are getting with this trend of turning the uber traditional into the lighthearted modern.

As you can see above- from my pinterest finds- all across the map home dwellers are jumping on this trend and turning their established formal dining rooms into playful takes on the table & chair combo. The mixing of materials, shapes, and overall forms is what makes these spaces so fun and unique. And the fact that you’re taking a room that’s complete function is to bring people together and making it reflect your personal style, creates a more relaxed environment to consume meals and memories in. 

So with the holiday's quickly approaching, anyone who finds themselves in the market for dining room furniture, don't forget to just have fun with it! Not every chair has to match. And, honestly, dining sets (for the most part) are pretty hideous, so definitely stay away those. But all and all, just don't let this room stay so conventional, give yourself a colorful quirky moment that will leave your friends and family in awe this holiday season.

design sponge DIY

                            (all images from: design sponge)

As stated before, I love a good (and simple) DIY; and this one design sponge just posted is definitely now on my list. Although I'm not getting married anytime soon, this wedding DIY: Concrete votives are to cute not to try. I mean the fact that you can add a neutral texture with some concrete and a butter knife seems right up my quick-and-easy DIY alley. Looks like I found myself a weekend activity. Yay!

interior designer spotlight. Caitlin Wilson

I'm officially back! And after two weeks of working on my first project installation, I am feeling more interior designery- yes, "designery" is the word I am choosing to use- than ever. So while I get the pictures from my trip edited and in order, I wanted to write a post highlighting one of my favorite Philadelphia interior designer's Rittenhouse space.
