Casa Craving Challenge: A Daring Dining Room

Every Thursday on CasaSugar, I'll give you a decorating challenge and ask you to go Casa Craving for items that fit the look. (Here's a post explaining what a Casa Craving is and how to create one.)

I have always loved the aqua-green paint that often shows up on antique furniture, like these Vintage Aqua Dining Chairs ($350) at Jayson Home & Garden. (Thanks to Design Sponge for the tip.) The chairs are elegant but funky and could create an unexpectedly playful look in an otherwise formal dining room.

So in this Casa Craving Challenge, I'd like you to design a formal dining room using these chairs. But there's one catch: The aqua shade needs to shine, so it shouldn't show up anywhere else in the room. What dining table, chandelier, and formal accents would you put with these chairs?

Tell me by creating Casa Cravings and tagging your Cravings with the phrase daring dining room, and I'll feature the results next Wednesday, Sept. 12. Even better, you can create a list of your bookmarks; TeamSugar has a great tutorial on listmaking if you're not sure how. Please let me know if you have any questions.
