The Dining Room Calls

I love the dining room in our new house. Its probably my favorite room because of the amazing light quality, original hardwoods and the beautiful picture window that overlooks our front yard. Below is a photo of the room before we moved in. The only thing that remains is the dining table and chairs. I haven't done a thing with it since we moved in.

But now, the room is calling to me. Just dreaming out loud here: My husband and I have decided on a color and are now beginning to envision what the room could be for our family. We want to replace the wonky ceiling fan with a drop down pendant. My husband is partial to the equator lamp below from CB2. I am too.

We love the pagoda style table above, found here. And we already have these two chairs set up in the window. They were a Craigslist find!

As far as color goes, we're thinking about heading in a dark brown direction. Martha Stewart just came out with her line of paints (replacing the Ralph Lauren paints) at Home Depot and I brought home some awesome color samples - I'm partial to Tilled Soil and Molasses.

What do you think?
