A couple of weeks ago I asked y'all for your opinions regarding my dining room, and I really appreciated your help! Nearly all of you voted for me to leave the top of the china cabinet OFF and to use the base as a buffet. Obviously, it's not as tall as a traditional sideboard, but I think it works.
So here's what I've done with that large wall. I love the way this big mirror shows up against the blue walls!
From the side, with the lamps turned off (where you can also get a great view of the return air vent!):
I know the mirror is very gold and the lamps are mostly silver, but I think I'm fine with the mixed metals look. The lamps are actually mercury glass, so there's a lot of gold flecking in them:
And you can see a bit of the chandelier in this photo, which is bronze. Lots of mixed metals! I think I like that, but I'm still not quite sure. Do you think it all works together harmoniously?
You might recognize the big mirror as the one that used to hang on the wall of crosses in my living room.
At the request of my husband, big changes are underway in the living room. I actually hired professional design help for the very first time, and I'm excited about giving that room a whole new look. I'll be sharing those changes soon!
So what do you think of the mirror in the dining room? Do you think it works?
