Welcome to my modern coastal dining room tour! I created this dreamy space with just a few statement pieces and a little accessorizing.
I'm so excited to show you my modern coastal dining room! It was so important to me to create a welcoming environment while still keeping it modern and clean. I stuck with a neutral color palette, with a little bit of metal and color sprinkled in. ✨
My family and I use our formal dining room on a regular basis. Between busy work, school, and extracurricular schedules, sitting down together for meals means a lot to me.
The dining room table is the perfect blend of rustic and traditional french country style. I love the nailhead finish on my bed, so I chose dining chairs with a nailhead accent. It just so happened that they were affordable and matched the dark brown of the table! The table is expandable, so I added the matching wood bench as another flexible seating option.
I loved the idea of a light colored neutral rug to contrast the dark furniture and floors. However, I was nervous about having one in such a high traffic area (and the fact that I have kids dropping cereal all over the place 🤣 ).
After the furniture, the 5-light chandelier was one of the first things I added to my dining room. The house came with a dark brown pendant that was a little too farmhouse for me. I chose the black fixture to make it more modern and I loved that it matched the shape of the table.
This is the wall on the side of my dining room. It all started with a DIY grasscloth sideboard project where I recreated a $3,000 piece into something more affordable.
The statement piece in the dining room is definitely this gorgeous seascape art. It's the perfect pop of color! I went with a slim matte black frame to contrast the beautiful shades of blues and greens in the print.
I loved the idea of adding sconces but didn't want to deal with the hassle of hardwiring them. Then, I came across this sconce hack from Nesting with Grace. 🤯 I used these black and gold sconces, some puck lights, and industrial velcro to create remote controlled lights.
Meet Dingo (Ringo is on the other side)! Since I had such dominant art pieces in my dining room and living room, I needed something fairly simple for the midpoint between the two.
This set of black abstract prints came as a digital download and was pretty plain by itself. I love adding a stylish frame to printable art to make it look more high end. For these, I chose double mat white frames and mounted them so they mirror each other.
Hope you enjoyed this bright and airy room! Make sure to check out the other Sunlight South tours here.
