Apartment Tour: Dining Room

Fridays this summer I will be linking up to do Kelly's Korner's Show Us Your Home series (see schedule at bottom of post). Today: the dining room!

I don't have a separate dining room but I do have a little dining area. Excuse the bad lighting-June gloom in the mornings and then I am not home from work until it is dark out.
I have the table folded down on one side so it fits better. When I have people over I put the side up so it's round. You can see a better photo here

The table is a floor sample from Crate & Barrel that was on super sale. Unfortunately they only had one blue chair on sale so I got three white and one blue (hey I didn't want to pay full price for more blue chairs!). I am still searching for a matching blue chair! The reversible placemats are from the Preppy Princess

I have this lamp sitting on the table for now. Not sure if it will stay

I absolutely love these prints from Etsy

This orange thing is a thrift store find. I bought navy paint but decided to leave it orange for now. My last apartment really needed a big piece of furniture for the corner of my living room. Thankfully this fits in my new place.

I can't remember where the anchor print is from. The extra white chair sits in the corner unless I have people over

I found this piece at a garage sale. I call it shabby chic nautical. I use it as a sort of bar type thing. On top I have coasters, drink umbrellas, etc. In the monogrammed basket from Whitney Caroline Designs I have napkins, placemats, etc. I haven't hung up the welcome aboard sign yet

Here's the schedule for the link up:
June 29 - Show us kids rooms
July 6 - Show us your bathrooms


  1. I don't usually like orange but the pop that the orange corner cubard gives is really nice! I think it helps brighten up the white walls! Very cute, Kate! Can't wait to see your place - hopefully in either October or December! xoxo

  2. Love your orange shelving unit, Kate!

  3. Adorable! Love everything about it. Nautical and chic- my favorite :) Happy weekend, lady!

  4. That looks great! Your table looks awesome!

  5. Very cute! I like the shelving unit. I'd do navy, but that is because as a Gamecock Girl, I can't abide by orange.
    I love that anchor print!

  6. Your apartment is SO cute! I'm in love with your corner shelf, as well as those prints!

  7. Oh my gosh your dining room is too cute. Your house place is fabulous!


    p.s. the dollar spot of Target is all nautical themed I saw them setting it this morning when I was there!

  8. I really like the bright orange cupboard!

  9. I L-O-ve that orange cabinet!

    Visiting from Kelly's Corner.

    Enjoy the Party!!

  10. I'm stopping by for a visit from Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life.
    I love the look and mix and match chairs.
    Have a terrific week.
