Dining room updating

Yesterday we came to a crossroads in the battle of Henry vs. While most of my previous choices have been okay (and some changes made already, like my ottoman)- some have not.

Namely the grasscloth in my dining area off the kitchen.

Last weekend I made Henry blueberry pancakes and blueberry juice ended up splattered on my paper.

After an incident with mashed beets and a close call with a crayon I’ve decided its best to replace it with vinyl grasscloth- which has gotten SO much better looking in recent years!

Sometimes its hard to tell the difference between the real deal and vinyl.

) I am only going to change the pendants (yes- AGAIN- these only have down light and I’ll need ones that illuminate all over since I’m losing the big dining fixture) So here’s where I’m headed- a banquette in blue or a neutral strip- either way in a really durable outdoor fabric- a must for high-traffic, food-centric areas of the home!

If our round table doesn’t work, I’d do the trestle version of my Gates table from Huston & Company.

A chest would give us another spot to hide Henry’s toys and allow for a small discreet TV in this area.

Our favorite family-friendly bar stools from S&l and wipeable Windsor chairs finish it off…. vinyl grasscloth // banquette // chest // tv // ceiling light 1 // ceiling light 2 // pendants // counter stools // side chairs // dining table // roman shade fabric // high chair (although I also LOVE the look of the new Skiphop one!

) I think this makes the most sense for our family as we never formally entertain and we need a little more room to move.
