Dining Room Update and New Rug & Wall Paper Reveal

Dining Room Update and New Rug & Wall Paper Reveal

This post is sponsored by Tandus Centiva. All the opinions are my own. 

When we bought this house over 4 years ago, the dining room are was one of the spaces we immediately fell in love with. We actually had to remove layers and layers of wallpaper from the 80s and give the floors some TLC to bringing the space back to life. We had the brilliant idea at our house warming, to leave the back wall blank and provided sharpies for all our guests to write a message that will stay with this house forever. Great thought at the time, it was however not smart in the long run. Long story short, those lovely guestbook messages, written in permanent marker, are the hardest things to paint over. We had to do the whole room in a dark grey color so the marks wouldn't bleed through the paint. Fast forward 2 years, I was so tired of this dark corner of our house, I had to lighten it brighten things up! So here we are, a dining room update , minus the light fixture that still needs to go up.

One of the key pieces that we decided to invest in was a durable rug. I am 100% team pro- dining room rugs. With an accident prone toddler and 2 crazy animals, rugs really help provide much needed cushion. I also wanted a way to tie in the grey color from the rest of the house. 

When I came across Tandus Centiva's new line of custom-designed area rugs, I thought wow, design meets durability! Tandus Centiva area rugs are made from commercial grade carpeting, customized for residential use. They are thick, durable, and idea for high-traffic areas. I chose the plaited pattern in the grey color called silverpoint. I think this color and pattern would be super versatile in other spaces as well such as office, play room, man cave.

I customized this rug down to the trim option in under 10 minutes with 5 simple steps. I could even enter exact measurements. This is ideal for odd sized spaces or if you want to avoid browsing hundreds of pages of options just to find the right one.

The custom Tandus Centiva area rug arrived in under 15 days from the moment I ordered it. The delivery was a breeze and the packaging was outstanding. I love the texture of this custom rug! Our baby, dog and cat all ran to it immediately and started playing around on it. Isn’t that the purpose of great rugs anyways, to be enjoyed?

As for the wall situation, we decided on applying removable vinyl wallpaper from Coloray throughout the room. I have never seen many chair railing room with wallpaper and was a little hesitant to introduce the pattern. After installation, I am so glad we went with a neutral palette.  I love the vintage look of the lotus flower. The removable wallpaper made this room instantly brighter.

The dining room is finally one of my favorite rooms again. I am so happy with the neutral colors we chose. Once we change out the chandelier, the gold accent color is really going to pop!
