In this post: Simple early fall dining room decor

So yesterday’s post was all about simplifying.

And I’m obviously all for that.

I mean, I wrote the post.

Simplifying is a really good idea.

But sometimes it’s so much fun to just layer and layer – and layer – until a room is cozy and warm and well, beautiful.

Our early fall dining room is all those things: layered, cozy, warm and beautiful.

Oh, and full of textures too.

I adore the bones of our dining room.

It gets great light. I am still in love with the board and batten. The chandelier has been on my wish list for years. We built the table with our own hands. The wall color is a perfect shade of grey/beige. And it’s almost a perfect square. (I know, I’m weird.)

I mean if I absolutely had to pick (like if it was life or death) I would probably choose our dining room as my favorite room in the house.

Thankfully I don’t think that’s a choice I’ll have to make any time soon!
