This post is in partnership with The Home Depot. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
For the past 11 years I have been focused on raising a whole lot of babies! Decorating my home until this point has been more on the practical and functional side rather than the beautiful Pinterest inspired rooms I have secretly been pinning for years.
All that dreaming & waiting is changing this year as I am starting to renovate and decorate one room at a time in order to create a home that I love and feels cozy and beautiful. My husband and I have been going to The Home Depot for years for everything we need for home projects, big appliances and construction. But now The Home Depot is blowing me away with their new interior home decor items!
Everything I have been dreaming of is all in one place with thousands of options to choose from.
The Home Depot carry thousands of on-trend products to fit your style and complete any room project & renovation. They back every purchase with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and provide the inspirational and how-to resources to help take your project from concept to completion. And my favorite part, everyday low prices and promotional offers which make renovating and re-decorating perfect for my budget!
My strategy is to break down renovations and redecorating room by room in order to keep from being overwhelmed.
I will go into full on panic mode if I think about redecorating and updating my entire 3300 square foot house at once! The best strategy to keep from being overwhelmed and to stay on budget is to break everything down room by room.
One of the first rooms on my list is our dining room. It is the gathering place for our big family of 8 and is expanded when we have guests. I picture this room as bright, inviting, and with a classic look.
My style is very classic
I like having a simple, clean base that serves as a neutral canvas. I want it to be a beautiful foundation that can stand alone, but to which I can easily add dishes and decor for any holiday or some glam that will create a fancy dinner party.
Even though I am decorating for me, I do want my kids to feel comfortable and not worried that they are going to break something. Meals at our table are fun, loud, and full of good food and lots and lots of memories.
First thing I want to add is this beautiful Home Decorators Collection Old Treasures 9×13 ft area rug. It is the perfect anchor to our dining room. And the pattern is simple but busy enough to hide all the things dropped by children!
If we go from floor to the ceiling, I love this clean and crisp brushed nickel chandelier from Home Decorators Collection. A beautiful chandelier can really anchor the table. And speaking of light, I make sure to use all the natural light I can when we are having meals during the day. These semi sheer window panels allow so much light into the room while dressing the windows with a soft classic look.
An extendable dining table is a must for our big family. I love this Aldridge Antique Grey Table from Home Decorators Collection, and it easily coordinates with so many other pieces in the Home Decorators Collection.
The best investment I made was in 16 place settings in my favorite Corelle Winter Frost White Dinnerware Set. Corelle is lightweight and break & chip resistant. This means the kids can help set the table and load the dishwasher without worry!
A little greenery brings so much life to a space. While I would love to have fresh cut flowers on my table every week it’s just not going to happen. A simple vase of faux greenery makes a dining room fresh and happy. I love this sculpted white ceramic decorative vase set. Just add a handful of greenery and what an impact it makes!
The final things on my wish list are a bar cart, a few wall decorations and new glassware. With so many options to choose from, home decor and furniture from The Home Depot makes it easy to choose the right items for your home.
The Home Depot also makes it easy to order and return. You can have your order shipped directly to the store or shipped right to your home. Shipping is free with most orders over $45 and you can return your item to any of the 2,200 Home Depot Stores.
Your favorite home improvement retailer will now be your favorite home decor destination!
