One of the biggest changes we made to our new home was to raise the ceiling in the living and dining rooms to a 10 foot vault. It has completely transformed the look of our home. The living room is still only partially decorated, but I’m excited to show you a little bit of the dining room!  You already saw a preview in my post about our dinner party, but it’s a little more complete now. We just finished hanging the shelves on the wall above the built-in cabinets, and the space feels complete. 

Here is what our dining room used to look like…



These days, it’s looking a little less dingy and dark. It’s bright and light and it makes me so happy! 




The built-in nook is such a great addition to the space because it adds much needed storage and makes the room feel more custom and cozy.
