This 'n That Thursdays: Summer Woodland Dining Room Décor

I am officially obsessed with this summer woodland décor idea.  I suppose it is because, while most people head to the coast for both vacation and design ideas during the summer, I prefer the mountains for inspiration.  This week I created two styleboards for a dining room based on a truly unique (although unfortunately no longer available) dining room table.  The first keeps the color scheme neutral, which I tend to like for a dining room as it leaves color options open for any table setting:

Clockwise from left: trees graphic long console from Iannone Design; resting birch dining table (no longer available); bentwood birch plywood dining chairs from 1stdibs; black white Gibson new leaf dinnerware from Style CEO; tree ring placemat from Viva Terra; triptych art whitetail deer tracks from Etsy (no longer available); vinyl decal birch forest from Rare Hollywood Auction; The Wise One pendant lamp from mammalampa; teak flatware from Viva Terra; ilio forest drinking glasses from connox; Center: birch print napkins from Etsy; Background: yellow birch wood flooring from Kalley Flooring

The second focuses on bringing the color green into this room -- the shade I chose is very cooling and is perfect for the summer season:

The Wise One pendant lamp; tree silhouette napkins from Etsy; resting birch dining table; trees graphic long console; vinyl decal birch forest from Etsy; The Cellar Lots of Leaves dinnerware from Macy's; owl wineglass from Scentsational Salts & Stuff; tree ring placemat; white tree glasses from Bouf; birch sapling green plastic modern dining chair from Wholesale Interiors; Center: twig flatware from The Dinner Party Shop; Background: yellow birch wood flooring

I would be happy serving meals in either space, as long as I am surrounded by green forests and majestic mountains in a cool high-altitude summer getaway cabin!
