Reader Design: Ashley's Evolving Dining Room

Cheers to the weekend! Back with another Reader Design today from the talented Ashley of Bigger Than The Three Of Us! We shared her stunning 'Airy Bedroom', (at left), last week which had us spinning with fresh ideas, and her dining room sure doesn't disappoint either!

Just as a reminder, Reader Designs are an open invitation to share your unique design and creativity! There are no requirements to be a professional decorator or even a fellow blogger. The purpose of Reader Designs is simply to share incredible rooms with fresh ideas and document these features in our SPACES section to use as a reference of inspiration. Besides, who doesn't like getting to peek inside beautiful, creative homes?!

So, are you ready to see more from Ashley?!

From Ashley:

"When we moved in to our house three years ago, I hated the formal dining room space. The built-in was definitely not my style nor was the wall coloring. I painted the walls gray first thing. Next, I tackled all the trim and the built-in. They both got a coat of bright white."

"I found a vintage credenza on Craigslist as well as some mid-century chairs. I paired those with an old table that we had and some garden chairs. Instantly the room had life. I kept adding more layers to make it my own. My husband painted the ikat painting for me and that helped finish the space."

"Things have to evolve for me and continue to evolve and that's the only way I know how to decorate."

Well, Ashley, your home is evolving absolutely beautifully! Thank you so much for sharing your hard work and creativity! Now, how can we commission your husband to paint a few more ikat paintings for us???

There are two ways you can share your SPACES with us: Tag #stylemuttspaces on Instagram or just post photos right onto our Facebook wall! We LOVE seeing your handiwork and are thrilled about the line-up of Reader Designs coming up - one of which is by a beautiful French woman living in Australia!

Thank you all for stopping by and have a splendid weekend!
