Mid Century Dining Room Rug

Mid Century Dining Room Rug – Pull up a chair and invite me to the dining room table, because today I’m going to talk about Boho Mid Century dining rooms. This space has been closed for a while and finally made it to the blog. It just so happened that we had cleaned up all the mess on our wooden dining table and here it looked so new and shiny that I started taking pictures for fun. (Side note, who else seems to use their dining room table as an outlet for anything?)

I’m not sure there is an exact word to really describe my personal home decorating style, but mid-century modern bohemian style with a “grand millennial” feel seems to really fit. This place combines my love of antiques, vintage pieces, bold colors and fun. I also always enjoy the opportunity to host, and there really is nothing I love more than filling every seat at our table with the people we love. Below are all the details of our design for this special dining room and family gathering space!

When we moved to Memphis last summer, we knew we wanted to create a spacious and inviting dining space in our new home to entertain family and friends. We have a large family in town who regularly gathers for potluck dinners, so a large extendable table was a must. I love this simple and elegant extendable wood dining table from West Elm. We ordered this beautiful table in the largest size, 72 to 92 inches, so we could accommodate as many guests as possible. It is shown above with the sheet unfolded, which is how we usually store it.

Our buffet is also a western dish. If you haven’t noticed, we love shopping at West Elm! We purchased this white buffet specifically for our small dinner party in Houston. It certainly works in this space too, but I think Patrick and I would love to update it in the future with a larger piece in a bold color or dark wood tone. White on white doesn’t necessarily work for me in this house, but I achieved it by hanging a large antique gold mirror over the buffet table and showing off the colorful accents there.

Having storage space in our dining room is essential! We’ve filled the drawers of this modern buffet table with decorative plates, cutlery that only appears on special occasions, napkins (and those sparkly rings), candles and candelabras, and even even a few board games!

I decorated my dining room with bold flowers, intricate frames, and favorite scenes of adventures at home and abroad. Most of the frames I’ve seen are from Anthropologie. I love their fun vibe when it comes to home decor!

And while I wish our vases were filled with fresh, fragrant flowers, I’m not a fan of this family. It’s false! (But I tend to pick fresh flowers when I entertain!)  The blue glass vase in the center of our dining room table was Final Cut from a recent trip to Augusta, GA. I filled it with floral arrangements from Target that will last for years. These artificial flowers are less than $5 per stem! For the Greek lady on our buffet table, I dried some garden hydrangeas to add some fun hair to this summer soirée.

Our dining room chairs were also brought from our home in Houston. I really like them in this room but I don’t know if I would sell them.

I think in a few years I’ll want to replace them with something similar, but I know these white mid-century chairs would have been great when our kids were little. They are so easy to clean! And not only that, the price is also surprising, less than 100 USD/seat from World Market.

The combination of white walls, white buffet table, and white chairs just begs for a bold curtain to tie it all together. I mixed the colors of the rugs and artwork and chose this beautiful blue for our dining room curtains. These Petra velvet curtains aren’t fancy or anything, but they have a high-quality feel, it seems like it! They’re also from Anthropologie, come in a variety of colors, and are linked here.

I ordered velvet curtains from several places for several rooms in my house and was very impressed with the quality of the Anthropologie set we ordered. They’re not completely black, but they darken the space enough, especially since we wanted the open space downstairs to be completely dark for an afternoon in the living room!

Have you noticed that I tend to lean towards the color blue? This modern print from Minted sits in our back living room in Houston and seems to perfectly fill the space of our new home. We used the colors of this print to choose our dining room rug and chose this rug from the Skye Collection by Loloi Rugs, available on Amazon. For added comfort, we placed a thick rug underneath as this is a high traffic area in our home. Honestly, it’s a great dining room rug because it’s printed instead of raised, which makes cleanup after Taco Night for Ten much easier.

I know this half-century-old dining room will continue to evolve over the years and hopefully continue to host many dinners with our loved ones. Thanks for stopping by the blog today to learn more about my thoughts on home decor.
