I am super excited to be finally sharing today’s post as it’s been a long time in the making- it’s our marble dining room makeover!
To give you a little backstory, when Josh and I bought our home we moved in with little to no furniture and only our bed and a kitchen table, thanks to my mom donating her old set. Decorating our home has been a process and over the past two years I’ve learned that you can’t rush it, these things take time and money!
As I mentioned before our first dining room set was my moms that she kindly passed down to us during the move. Although we were super grateful to have a table, it just wasn’t the vibe we were going for. First of all it was glass, which I learned very quickly would need cleaning on a daily basis, and secondly it was black when the rest of the house was light and airy. Our cat Oggy also took a liking to the chairs and basically tore them to shreds over the course of two years. It was a great look.
Anyways, it was finally time to move on and thanks to our friends at Joss & Main we now have the marble dining room set of our dreams! Well, technically it’s my dreams but now that we’re married what’s mine is Josh’s so I guess it’s his dream to, right??
When we started looking I knew I wanted white and marble; a palette that would help open up the space and keep things light. I also thought a round table would help give the room some dimension and the shape has actually allowed us to seat 6 people comfortably which is a bonus! I started checking out Joss & Main on the daily and was so impressed with their selection and prices. I couldn’t believe how affordable everything was while still being so on trend!
After doing a little digging and some time of being indecisive, I decided on the Darrell Dining Table with a marble top and the Rita Side Chair’s in white. When the delivery arrived Josh and I were both ecstatic and couldn’t believe the quality of the marble! This table made us feel like legit grown-ups.
Our new dining room set definitely has a modern feel to it so I wanted to bring some warmth into the mix by adding a faux fur rug underneath. Henry seriously loves this rug and curls up on it everyday, which every dog mom finds absolutely adorable. Is it weird that I just sit there and watch him sleep?
If you’re an animal love like me then you should definitely check out Joss & Main’s pet selection. They have the cutest pet accessories from beds, to carriers, and dishes! For the full selection you can check it out here.
Anyways, I also wanted to add a spring element to our dining room and found the perfect palm leaf curtains, I’m obsessed! I continued the tropical vibes with a faux banana leaf plant in the corner, which surprisingly looks real and am tempted to water every other day. Side note, I never actually water it don’t worry!
To say I’m excited about our new set up would be an understatement! I actually look forward to waking up in the morning and enjoying my chai tea at our new table while checking e-mails. Is that weird? Maybe I am turning into a grown-up…
