Feeling Inspired By: 3/4 Painted Walls

partially-painted-walls-trendOver the last few months we’ve been making some slow but steady progress on our place. The living room finally has some curtains, I painted the bedroom, and the entry room got some art work. There’s one room that has been sorely neglected though, our dining room. Even though we bought a beautiful wooden harvest style table, we’ve pretty much left the walls blank. But, I’ve finally got a plan!

Since our living room and dining room are pretty small and connected, I have been trying to think of ways to give the dining room it’s own identity without the two rooms looking like a hodge-podge, and creating visual clutter.

Ever since I saw this reveal by Laura with her blush pink dining room, I’ve been thinking about painting our dining room a different colour than the living room, but I wasn’t sure how it would work in such a tight space. Plus I’m really in love with the idea of painting it a dark navy blue, which is super bold.

The other day I was sitting at the table in my sad blank dining room when it hit me – a 3/4 painted wall. I’m not even sure where I might have seen this look before, but a quick visit to pinterest and I was sold!

I haven’t figured out exactly how high I’ll paint the wall, but I think I might try to match it somewhat to the baseboard wall we have on the other side of the room [seen below].

Along with the navy blue painted wall I have a couple of other ideas that I’d like to bring into the dining room like sheer navy curtains over the awkward windows, a triptych picture from one of my travels, and possibly a cool way to hang my phulkari

I think there is still quite a ways to go before I’m done decorating the house, but I am starting to see the light at the end of the decorating tunnel for these two rooms!
