Friends!! The time has come to finally reveal my dining area that I chose to do for the New Year, New Room Challenge. I have been itching to redo this space, not because I disliked it before, but parts of it never sat right with me. This new space is so totally different that what I’ve done before and it gives maximalist vibes with an eclectic twist and I’m really starting to realize that I’m just an eclectic soul. Pattern on pattern, colors that you wouldn’t think go together that GO together and and the spirit of my culture all throughout. This room makes me happy- it makes my family happy as well and that’s what’s truly important. I never really have a budget when I’m curating a space. My thrifters heart will not let me not have some thrifted, vintage items in my design and most of the time the color palette falls into place when I know green is my primary color(did I mention I LOVE green!😆)
Let me remind you of what it looked like before-
This dining area was nice, definitely better than it was before but there was something about it that just didn’t sit right with me. Maybe the color palette, or the light fixture. Who knows- all I know is that it needed a change and I needed it take it from just a “brown” room. So I decided to go brighter, and I brought back my galley wall. I think I just put more thought into this area and in the end, I created a room that I’m proud to say I did. So without further delay, here are the after photos from the New Year, New Room Challenge that was hosted the my friend Stephanie Watkins from Casa Watkins Living. She brought us all together so that we could all support and uplift each other while we transformed a space in our home. Enjoy!!!

Let’s first talk paint. I’ve always said that paint and wallpaper can transform a space, and clearly they both made an impact in this area. The brands and colors I used are-
- Ceiling- Sherman Williams ‘Rural Green’
- Wall- Behr ‘Harvest Time
- Cabinet- Behr ‘Vine Leaf’
- Chairs- Fusion Mineral Paint in Plaster
Where wallpaper and fabric are concerned, Spoonflower will always be my go to.
- Wallpaper- Spoonflower Art Deco Fan Palms by Helen P. Designs
- Fabric- Spoonflower African Map by Vagabond Folk Art
Ruggable washable rugs have always been a great company to use for rugs in high traffic areas. These washable rugs are easy to install, come in amazing patterns and textures. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on their newest collaboration with the beautiful and amazing Iris Apfel. P.S. Use my code ‘MOCHAGIRLPLACE10’ at checkout for a discount💚
Lastly, my gallery wall is made up of artwork that simply spoke to me. You can find most of these from Society6, Mia Cross, Jessica Chambliss and Alison Veino (can we get an Amen for the women artists in the world???!?!?💚)
Thanks for following along with me and as always, make sure you check what the other participants are doing to their spaces below.💚💚
Until next time….XO, Tracey ❤️
Nice easy-going project. I like the ease in which everything came together.
It really was an easy project but still made a big impact on the space. Thank you❤️
so much to love about this space, the light, the gallery wall, and the color. It was great before but I love a good reinvention.
Thank you so much!!!
