A Peek Inside Carolyn O’Neills Vintage Dining Room

Vintage Dining Room Setting

This edition of Real Rooms goes a little retro as I take a peek inside artist Carolyn O’Neill’s divine vintage dining room, which features delightful polished floor boards paired with some vintage furniture that I’m going gaga over!

Grounding the room with white walls and brown furniture has allowed Carolyn to be daring with the colours in her art and furnishings without making the vintage dining room look visually jarring. Such grounding is a far cry from what the space used to look like when the family first moved in.

“Weโ€™ve been living here for just over a year following a major renovation,” Carolyn tells me. “The walls were a hideous shade of pink –ย it needed re-plastering and painting”.

Vintage Dining Room Setting

After removing an old chimney to give the room some much-needed negative space, the dining area has now become a multi-purpose zone that sees the family eating there as well as carrying out homework and drawing.

“This 1980โ€™s circular dining suite is my most recent acquisition which I scored at a Salvos store in Bendigo for a steal at $85,” Carolyn says. ย “It comfortably seats our family of five and has really completed this space, [it] feels unified and everything works together”.

I’m digging the vintage vibe at play here and am always mad about a second-hand find that you can make your own! Drop me a comment below and share what you’re enjoying about this space.
