A high contrast wood and black farmhouse style dining room


Dining room tour. See an update of our modern farmhouse style dining room. High contrast wood and black decor with touches of cottage charm.

It's summer time, which means we are slowing down a bit on projects so that we can soak up the sun and enjoy the outdoors with the kiddos. I still have plenty of projects to share with you this summer, but I'm going to fill in the gaps with a tour of some of the spaces in our home. We haven't even lived here a year yet, so most rooms are far from finished, but progress is part of the story, so I want to share where the rooms are now, and what my plans are for them in the future. I've shared our dining room all dressed up for fall entertaining and Christmas dining. Today I want to show you what it looks like on an every day basis and tell you my design plans down the line.
