Dining Room + Shopbop Sale

Happy hump day babes!  So, we have been in our house for almost two months and I have managed to get us fully moved into about 1.5 rooms.  Oh yeah.  Self high-five.  Slow and steady wins the race amiright?! I snapped a few quick pictures of the one room that is about 80 percent finished, our dining room.  The only thing I am missing is window treatments and a possible cushion for the window seat... but I need all of your expert opinions - do I want a window seat cushion and window treatments and if so, what?  I was thinking of simple, bamboo shades because wooden shutters seem too heavy for the space and blinds just won't be happening.  

I wish I could say that I did this all of myself, but my friend Helen, who has an insane eye for interior design, helped me a TON.  Also, I love that old rug we have in here, but I know it doesn't belong.  Boo hoo.  She will move on to greener pastures when I find something perfect to take her place.

So, time for some more questions!  We got our new granite installed last week (insert angels singing) and I basically want to kiss it every time I walk into the kitchen (which opens into the dining room.)  

Those stools will be going since they're basically all broken and not the look I am going for.  I am trying to decide between black and silver metal stools...

Which ones do you all think I should go with?

Also, my favorite sale is happening right now, the Shopbop Friends and Family Sale!  Take 25 percent off with code Family25 through the 16th.  Here are my picks and possibly a few things I may have scooped up for myself...

I will be posting over at the Blogger Closet on Instagram (@thebloggercloset) hosted by Amanda!  Make sure to check it out and follow along!

Have a fabulous day!

  1. Your dining room is gorgeous.... all Pinterest worthy pics! And yayyyyy for blogger closet, can't wait to see what you have in store for us :)

  2. It looks sooo good! LOVE that chandelier! Don't worry, I don't think I'm really moved into a single room... 50% of my rooms don't even have furniture yet, haha! As for the stools, I vote black. I like that it picks up the black in your appliances. No help with the window coverings because I'm seriously avoiding/dreading doing that in my own house... I just have no idea!!

  3. Seriously loving your dining room! I need to have your friend Helen come help me decorate my place! I do not have a good eye for interior design LOL!

  4. Beautiful, beautiful! The black stools are my favorites. And I think the bamboo or some Plantation shutters would be pretty. You have so much beautiful natural light, you don't want anything too dark.

  5. Absolute yes to the window cusion!! It was one of my favorite things growing up! It just helps it seem so cozy! I would read there all the time!! It looks gorgeous for only being 80% complete! :)

  6. Gorgeous house! I'd go with the black stools. We need new stools too...

    Window cushion for sure!!

  7. Loving your dining room! I like both stools, I guess I'd vote the black though :)

  8. Voting for the silver stools and no blinds or some type of natural blind like you suggested. And NEVER get rid of the pink zebra runner. That is all ;)

  9. It's all gorgeous! Love your new home!
