#WCW – The Makerista

I’ma let you finish, but first I want to share something with you that’s been on my mind since I saw it earlier this week. Can we take a moment for the dining room of blogger Gwen Hefner, aka, The Makerista. I was made aware of it earlier this week and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. I mean srsly you guys … 

Black walls, bright accents, that mural, the romantic lighting, panelled walls, the deep reds, geometric table mats, sleek chairs coupled with an antique table, gold accents and a perfect juxtaposition of old and new design all melded into one. Let’s not forget, it’s decorated for Halloween. 

I now know what I want to be when I grow up; Gwen’s dining room. Yes. A dining room. 

All images are via Gwen’s A Spooky Supper Setting blog post on The Makerista. Although, truth be told, I’d friggin’ love to claim them as my own. In a hot second. I’d have no shame in that whatsoever, but you know, internet rules.

    You're planning on growing up? Not me, even if it is to be this fabulous dining room. Gorgeous. Also, nice callback on the Kanye thing.

      I should have written should I grow up, I'd like to be that dining room. I have no intention of it happening in the immediate future.

      UGHHH I KNOW! It's so beautiful, my eyeballs hurt. I might as well give up blogging now 😛

    It's really gorgeous. I'm always surprised by how cosy black walls can be!

      Me too! We had a black feature wall years ago, but I don't think I did it right, so I have hesitations about that much black. But this is converting me!!!
