There is a lot to learn from Liz and John’s 1926 Craftsman, especially when it comes to tossing out the rules and following your gut. While this “eclectic gothic-glam” dining room is constantly evolving, we’re going to break down the space to elements that work, and show you how to get the look:

DESIGN ADVICE from Liz & John

There are lots of “rules” for decorating if you don’t know where to start, but I think your home should be about the people who live there, and what makes you happy and comfortable. If you like something or want to try something in your space, don’t be afraid! The less I cared about if a design decision was “right” or not, the more comfortable our space got. I just really think that your home should be your refuge and if you don’t like something there, change it!

We’ve had three different paint colors in the kitchen/dining room since we bought the house. This place is my experiment, and I’ll probably never stop changing things. If it doesn’t work, we change it. There’s nothing wrong with working things out until you like them. Now that we’ve done things exactly how we want, there’s usually no place we’d rather be. It’s a really cool feeling.
