This past month has been both the longest and quickest month! It's been a blast though because I've spent it working on my moody bohemian dining room and today I am ready to reveal the completed room. The DIYs are done, the fixtures are installed, the furniture is in place, and the room is styled. Let's take a look!

Thank you so much for joining me for the New Year New Room Refresh Challenge Reveal! I am more than pleased with how my room turned out. And I'm so excited to see everyone else's finishes rooms. Make sure to stay tuned through the end for the links to all of the other blogger room reveals. 

Creating A Moody Bohemian Dining Room

Let's start with how I got to the finished version of this room. There were some decor swaps, DIYs, paint, and more that went into this room. Some weeks were easier than others but none of it was hard. And the result has swept me off my own feet! If you have a room in need of a refresh, you'll want to explore these ideas:

The first project I tackled was the luxe tassel fireplace garland. It was the first change to the space and it really started to set the tone for how I wanted this room to feel. I used SmithHonig's silk tassels in lotus and they're honestly so beautiful. Not only are they dreamy to look at, but they're soft to the touch too. I love the way they pop against the Velvet Finishes Luxurious paint job the fireplace mantel received.

Then it was time to add a patterned rug to the floor. I love using patterned rugs because they add something interesting to a room without demanding to be the main focus. I used the Aloma by Under The Canopy from Mohawk Home and the dual surface rug pad to keep the rug from shifting as chairs are moved around. This pattern in the Aloma rug is exactly the vibe I wanted for this room. It's darker and have a global inspired design.

Be still my heart. The wallpaper went up next. I chose to use Spoonflower's peel and stick woven wallpaper but you can also get all designs in prepasted removable wallpaper and non pasted traditional wallpaper. Because wallpaper was integral in creating the vibe I was after in this room, I chose the Eyes Adorned design for it's ornate design and moody color. I vlogged how easy it was to install the wallpaper and you could see the instant impact it made that day.

I was on a roll at this point with changes to the dining room. With everything looking fresh and beautiful, I needed to do something about the bad paint job that was on the dining table when I bought it. For $60, free delivery, and gorgeous details I wasn't mad about having to do this. It also meant I got to use my favorite furniture paint line- Velvet Finishes. I used the Velvet Finishes Minimalistic paint color and made the details pop with their dark glaze. I love how the table turned out.

The final project I shared for this room was one that I had been wanting to tackle for years. Using the salvaged fireplace mantel you've seen in this room before and a quick trip to the home improvement store, I created a faux decorative fireplace for the room. It was the project that most made the room feel grown up! I think the gorgeous tassel garland pops even more beautifully on it now.

Eek - I am so excited to be at this point! I hope you enjoy the moody vibes I've added to my dining room. I am just so happy every time I see this room. Please let me know what you think of it in the comments below.

From top to bottom, this room has layers of moody elements. One of my favorite additions to the room is the dark mystical wallpaper. It's peel and stick making it easy to apply and enjoy and remove when it comes time to move from this home. It's also available in prepasted removable wallpaper and nonpasted traditional wallpaper.

The base of the room is this fabulous patterned rug. It's a perfect fit for the room with it's neutral color palette and globally inspired pattern. We are all enjoying the plush feel underfoot too.

For dinnerware, I chose to use neutrals in nontraditional patterns and shapes. The chargers are plastic with a grey wood grain design. Atop that are inexpensive basic plates in a rounded square. And sandwiched between them are gorgeous dark olive mud cloth inspired design dinner napkins.

In the corner of the room I've gathered some houseplants to enjoy late afternoon sunlight atop the rattan bar cart. I mixed in a few vintage and thrifted pieces like the coral glasses and the gold leaf glass caddy.

When I first started looking for a table for the room I was feeling pretty disheartened. I really wanted to find a second hand table I could give a facelift for a reasonable price and just when I was about to give up, this gorgeous table turned up. The seller has painted it with a medium toned grey but the pretty details were lost so I used Velvet Finishes furniture paint to lighten the whole piece and their glaze to add dimension to the leg details.

For a simple centerpiece, I used a thrifted woven tray to corral my salvaged amber apothecary bottles and mini selenite towers. I like that this carries warmth into the room and is both simple and interesting for the every day.

The fireplace makeover had been one I had wanted to make for a very long time. And I'm so glad it's done because I swoon for every element. From the tile to the velvety black paint to the colorful artwork to those beautiful flower sconces - it all coordinates perfectly.

The flower sconces match the Octavia brass chandelier over the table. I love how romantic and feminine this chandelier is and how it marries a modern look with a vintage one. When the conversation starts to slow, we can all just stare at it's glow.

On the far end of the room, I've switched things up a little bit. I've been using this wall to store craft and office supplies as well as a concealed mudroom. The addition of the vintage credenza ties in the vintage vibes in the room and gave me a place to add in decor. And the stereo was a must for impromptu dance parties.

Looking back at the original design board for this room, how do you think I did?
