Colourful Kitchen

I love this casual dining room from May's House and Home.  It's eclectic and homey - you can tell people actually live in this space and that they enjoy being together there- something that I find very absent from a lot of magazine shoots.

An accent wall coated with black chalkboard paint serves as a family message board and large collages of photos add a colourful personal touch. The traditional white chandelier matches the modern white vinyl chairs and I love how it contrasts against the dark back wall.  Mellow yellow paint adds warmness to the white panelling and the harvest table ties it all together. So inviting!

I visited the house and home website. I had never been on there before. They have a lot of great inspiration pictures. I believe I am going to order their magazine. Thanks for sharing!

A chalkboard wall and bulletin board! I would have never thought of that. It looks great.
