2012 Progress:Dining Room

This is a blog mainly focused on decorating so instead of my resolutions you get my "home resolutions". We had a big year in 2012. 

2010 - I found this old picture from MLS. I remember my Mom coming to Raleigh and she had a tear in her eye when she walked around our house. The entire house was cream. Floors to ceiling. Maybe that is why I am so addicted to color now. 
2011- We made do with what we had. I found a ton of faux bamboo stuff on Craigslist, by ton I mean way too much. I still kind of love the aggressive coral. We got a chevron rug like every other blogger on the planet. I would love to replace it with something a little more classic  

2012- We added grass cloth and Griffin and Wong wallpaper panels and some new curtains. What a difference a year made. We still need 2 more chairs. 

We added a sideboard for some more storage. It also provide a space to add lamps. No one wants to eat with overhead lighting blaring. Take a note from The Perfectly Imperfect Home, avoid the "dreaded overhead". 


  1. Gorgeous dining room. I adore the wallpaper panels. Yels x

  2. Your dining room is REEEEDDIIIIIICCC. You know I love it girlfriend!

  3. I'm so envious of that sideboard. Love!

  4. Your dining room is absolutely beautiful!! I would love that coral color in a bathroom, but I would get in trouble if I did that in my house!

  5. Jessie your house looks awesome!

  6. I've reallllllllllly enjoyed watching the progress of your house the last year!

  7. Still love this so much! Where did you finally get the wallpaper panels installed with acrylic?

  13. That іs a bit Offtopic, but і thought you might giѵе me an adѵice.
    Wіth гegarԁs to гegistering anԁ hоsting а domaіn namе, Ι haѵe nο idеa what Ι need tο do.
    A. Must Ι registеr аnd host at thе same place?
    Or B. Should I registеr my domain nаme with
    one соmpany and hοst it with anοtheг?
    Ӏ would wоulԁ rather do A,
    but thегеin lies my dilemma.
    I want to register my domain name with GoDаdԁy, since I like their rates.
    On the other hand, I'd rather not host my site using them. What would be your personal preference?

    Here is my homepage
