Happy Friday Folks!
Today I’m sharing a really fun post with you. I was recently inspired by Arhaus with an interesting challenge that I couldn’t refuse. The task? To create a design board based on one of their seven different Color Guide graphics in hopes to inspire others on how to design a dream room around their favorite shades. Since we all know color is key when it comes to design (and I usually choose neutrals!), I thought this would be fun! They provided me with seven color guides:

I consider blue to practically be a neutral (we all know my love for BM’s Hale Navy) and it’s a real calm, serene, gender neutral color that’s versatile in practically any room.
For some reason, I was drawn to designing a dining room (though I came real close to choosing a master bedroom). Maybe it’s because we’ve been unwrapping gift after gift from Williams-Sonoma and Crate & Barrel and we have no place to put it. Basically, I’m dying to host a dinner party in a

Many people opt to get a matching set of dining room table, chairs and buffet. Or maybe they use hand me down furniture because this is one of the least utilized spaces. Either way, I hope to inspire you to rethink your dining room and show how you can have a warm, inviting space while getting creative with your design.
Nonetheless, here’s what I came up with:
