Before & After: Dinette Makeover

CarrieMeet Carrie

A wife, mother and up-and-coming Instablogger, Carrie has always had a passion for style. Her love of design keeps her home’s décor constantly changing, so finding creative ways to update her space on a budget is a must.


Carrie’s dinette was nice, but something about it just wasn’t quite right. “I want my home’s design to reflect my personality,” she said. “My old dinette just wasn’t me.” Like most of us, Carrie didn’t have the luxury of an unlimited budget. She needed to make the space feel new without doing a total overhaul.Before 2


Inspired by the hot trend of monochromatic design, Carrie’s new space is light and luxurious. “I love how much brighter the room feels now,” she said. “And the art and new lighting give it the perfect touch of sparkle and charm that it was missing before.” She wanted the French country boutique and she got it!After 1

We absolutely love Carrie’s new Paris-inspired dinette design! Here’s everything that went into her new room:

3-pc Framed Print – Paris by World Traveler

“The perfect mixture of rustic and chic. I love the old Paris map over a distressed mirror and the look of an old barnwood frame”


Sideboard – Allegro by Najarian

“The inlay mirrors on the doors are stunning and brought elegance and the wow factor to the simplicity of a round table”

crystals and oversized

drum shade…

love at first sight!”


Dining Set – Allegro by Najarian

“I could imagine family dinners around the large round table and the mirrored lazy susan is ingenious on a large table”
