Christy’s Dining Room

Christy’s Dining Room
I think this before and after is a great example of staging a home. The first picture looks alright, there’s some nice furniture and interesting elements in the room. But truth be told, it looks more or less like a place to toss your purse, not show off. 
 But the second pic, wow! Not a lot has changed, the basic layout remains the same. But with the added pops of color and the graphic black and white fabrics, it definitely grabs your attention and says “Look at me!” 
Glad to oblige. 
 Thanks to Christy at A Lil’ Welsh Rarebit for sharing!

    You are absolutely right. The addition of the rug and the pop of color with the runner alone make the room sing.

    Wow! That Christy is one great talent! Love the new look – especially the lightness of the room! The new rug is the bomb!

    I’ve seen the before in person and can’t wait to see the after (love the rug). She also did an amazing job on their TV/play room (which was featured on her site a little while ago). Very inspiring…

    Great before and after! I love the choice of colors! The wall color, the dark wood of the furniture and the gorgeous black and white rug. The green runner makes the room pop!
    I would love to dine in this room.

    Christy did a great job making over her dining room 🙂 And her family room isn’t too shabby either!!
