Favorite Room Feature: Peppermint Bliss

So do we all remember the "Smoking Pussy" from earlier in the week? Yeah, that was my girl Bailey from Peppermint Bliss. She is a genius, right? Well today we are so fortunate to have her sharing her favorite space currently in her house. Drumroll please. Her dining room! Ok. I obviously adore every person that shares their favorite space on FRF, however, Bailey's got design skills that kills. I am just sayin'. You be the judge of her fabulously unique space. Go Bailey!


Hayyyyy Y'all.
So my favorite room in our house is our dining room. For lots of reasons, and imma tell you all of them!
First of all, I love to entertain, and this big ol' table can fit squillions of people. OR you can take out the leaves and it is cozy and intimate.
I also love how bright and happy this room is, usually dining rooms are a dark and moody affair, and while I like that, this room is just so refreshing. The minty green walls, pops of pink and yellow. Dare I say it, it embodies Peppermint Bliss.
These china cabinets are so fabby. They were just boring ol practical Ethan Allen cabinets with great details and features (like the built in lighting) but we fluffed them up with some glossy coral paint on the inside and some pure white outside, and now they are some of my favorite pieces. I also love the china in them, gifts from our wedding and my husbands great-Aunts china passed down to us. 
I love how this room has evolved with most of the same furniture from our last house in Chicago, but feels totally different. It is the same buffet, same table, same chairs just refinished and recovered.
The details in this room please me so. The trim on those curtains is insane. Smoking Pussy painting makes me feel scandy, and the fabric on the chairs is perfection.
Thanks so much for having me!
xoxo
