And I must confess it adds a lot of character to the space
My partner Kim and I have unusual tastes in furniture, so as we were trying to decide on how to decorate our master dining room, it was quite a challenge. Kim likes things on the easy side and wanted natural wood furniture for our room. Kim even recommended making a couple of custom pieces for the room. I am not against having custom built furniture, however it just doesn’t fit in with the look that I was going for. I cherish a glamorous dining room with charming furniture that looks similar to something out of a loft decor magazine… Consisting of clean and light color fabrics to offset the dark wood furniture. I also care about having a canopy bed and have consistently wanted one. After some compromising, in the end, Kim decided to allow me to decorate the dining room as I wanted. So, Kim and I have a glamorous dining room with European furniture that is fit for royalty, and I do feel charming when I am lying in my plush king-size bed. Of course, Kim got something out of the compromise. Since she does most of the cooking, Kim was able to decorate the dining room but she wanted. So, Kim decided to add a few custom made pieces to the space. Instead of a traditional island, we have a big wooden table that Kim had built. And I must confess it adds a lot of character to the space. Although Kim and I have unusual tastes in furniture, we make things work. I can have my glamorous dining room and Kim can have her dining room, which is a mix of rustic and new elements.
