Refined Rustic Dining Room for Fall

When we moved into our current home, we converted an indoor spa into our dining room. Part of that transformation included painting the pine walls white. When we did so, we chose to leave the knots showing to give it a slightly more rustic look.

Now that we’ve lived here a couple of years, I want to refine our rustic dining room by modernizing the space a bit more. Stay tuned for that! But, for now I want to share simple accents that elevate a rustic space without major renovations.

Infuse Cozy into your Rustic Dining Room

There is really no simpler way to refine a space than to add candles. I created my own DIY candelabra with this beautiful copper piece this fall and I love how it anchors the room.

And, we are so grateful to have a double sided fireplace to enjoy. I amped up the cozy-factor by creating a candle vignette in the inset cubby above the logs.

Adding layers of candles adds elegance to a rustic space. Plus, when lit they offer a romantic ambiance that can’t be beat.

Create a Living Focal Point

All too often I find myself depending on decor to make a statement in my spaces. However, often the biggest impacts are made with architecture and living accents.

Since we already have a lovely wood ceiling to make a statement, I chose to leave my vertical garden this fall to help refine our rustic dining room.

Plants immediately take a space from sterile to cozy and polished. Interior designers have been using live plants for decades to add that finishing touch to a space.

Add Glass and Metal to Elevate the Space

My final tip is to add more glamorous elements to your rustic dining room. Metal and glass are both accents that elevate a space because of their texture and finish, yet seamlessly blend into rustic spaces.

My amber bottle collection is the perfect addition for fall. It is such a warm and cozy color but gives that touch of glamor to the space.
