My summer home tour continues and today I am sharing Decorating Tips for a Modern Farmhouse Dining Room. The aqua green in here is stunning!

Modern Farmhouse Dining Room Inspiration

Our modern farmhouse dining room table looks like it is on vacation at the beach! My new summer color palette has made it to the dining room and it looks fantastic!

Meet My New Coastal Farmhouse Dining Room

I have been collecting aqua blue and aqua green decor items for years for our beach house. This summer, the beach has come to our home and is now farmhouse dining room decor! I love to say, when you are restyling a room, always shop your own home first! It’s a good thing coastal farmhouse style is one of my favorites.

Aqua Color + Farmhouse = Coastal Farmhouse

How incredible does this farmhouse dining room table look set with all of the beach house decor items? Without a plan, I literally just put beach house decor items into boxes and bags and brought them home. As I unpacked the boxes and bags, and began styling, the beach house decor items seemed to easily find their places in their new home. I have always loved my farmhouse dining room table, and the weathered grey color of it is perfect with this new summer color palette.

I may have mentioned before that I was a professional artist for many years before I started this blog. It is actually the reason I started the blog. But then I fell in love with blogging and now I blog full time! The painting below is one that I painted for our family room. I even shop my own art for repurposed decor!

Adding Accessories to the Dining Room

When I began going through the boxes and bags, I found two packages on these beautiful cotton napkins. They were still in the packaging with the TJMaxx price stickers on them. Why had I not ever used them? They are so gorgeous! The shutter that is hanging on the wall, I got from my good friend Debra Hall at DebraHallLifestyle. This shutter has been moved around my home for a couple of years now and I think it’s finally found a home for a little bit. In the middle picture below, is a drop-leaf table that I bought years ago at the Rose Bowl swap meet. Literally, probably 20 years ago. It was stained and a very dark brown. I painted it with mud paint and wow, look how great it looks now! The picture on the right is another painting of mine. I painted full-time for five years and this is one that had perfect colors to accent my summer color palette. I also brought my beloved sea glass collection, how pretty does it look against the painting!

I used some new placemats together with one of my favorite chargers for this table setting. I think I will be using these placemats more often! I love to mix and match plates. I used two different plates from our beach house and I love how they complement each other on this table. Mix and match is a great way to extend your plates and glassware. If you have never tried mix and match to create a tablescape, give it a try! I love to mix and match plates and glassware, and, well, everything!. I love a table that looks beautiful and everything matches, but is not perfect or stuffy. Just like Tim Gunn from Project Runway says, “It needs to go together, not match”.
