Brick wall dining room, Tolix chairs and pretty chandelier…Create this space
I came across these images from this website of this brick wall dining room and fell in love!
I was pleasantly surprised to find out they were a Chicago design/antique business about an hour away from me,
and these pictures are from a 2011 show house in Lake Forest,IL.
In fact you can see a before picture here.
I wondered how it would be to pull together a space like this so I decided to do a little on-line browsing! I’m not being paid by any of these companies, I just thought this would be fun!
I found these Tolix chairs on Overstock
and 2 colors of spray paint from Rustoleum
and the other is a closer match, Slate blue.
And while you may not be able to afford and authentic French trestle table, you might be able to get a great reproduction one like this one at One King’s Lane.
A little sand paper and whitewashing and it will age right up.
Lastly, it needs a really awesome chandelier.
I found this one at Lamps Plus
I actually really liked the dark metal arms on it,
But this one is much closer to what is in the picture.
And after you use this technique to make your faux brick walls,
you can find similar curtains here which are just plain pretty.
and a sisal rug from Ballards.
But I actually love this wool and jute rug from Pottery Barn even more. It has a much cooler tone to it.
What do you think? Is it an attainable space? I think so. I think if you shop around you can go either high or budget on it and get a very close and result.

Oh my goodness, you have me wanting to cover my dining room walls with your faux brick technique. Wonder if my husband will be down…
I love that room, too! Thanks for the inspiration, Jen. Definite DIY/ budget friendly possibilities with this look.
You have all of this down to a science, Jen, and I agree! I also think that you can take a big chunk off the cost by looking for rugs at Natural Area Rugs (sisal, etc.) and lots of other things at Overstock and Amazon. I absolutely love Ballard’s and Home Decorator’s…always quality. One Kings Lane, and Joss and Main are big online shopping places for me but the shipping is slow and returns are impossible.
Thanks for the great ideas!
