I am not a professional interior designer or stylist by any means, but I really wanted our dining room to reflect the cross between California modern, Mid-Century Modern, and Scandinavian Minimal feel that I love so much in interior design right now. Most of all, the room needed to work for us. I swapped out the credenza for some Ikea Lattjo shelves, but if you’re not feeling the black, these ones at World Market are a pretty gray color.
The hanging chair was added to the corner as a little relaxing or reading nook, and often times the kids will pile in it together with no goal other than to watch the birds outside. I kept our old dining table and chairs because they feel so right for our family and our use of the space. Overall we are very happy with it, and will continue to enjoy our family dinners, arts and crafts, projects, and reading there.

I’ve been thinking of switching out my light fixture, but I kind of love how simple it is. What do you think?
