Everyone is very serious about BBQ here in the south and we have quickly become huge fans of the vinegar based Eastern North Carolina BBQ sauce that is ubiquitous around here. But our absolute favorite place to get whole hog bbq is The Pit in Durham NC. Besides serving up the best food, the location hits all the right notes with it's industrial vibe.
I think the combination of industrial/modern would be perfect for a dining room. Here's how to get the look:
-Painted brick (or concrete block) is awesome with most of the paint scraped off giving it a lived in feel.
-Pair bright orange upholstered dining chairs with an industrial table to hit the perfect industrial/modern note.
-A simple walnut sideboard is perfect for serving the whole hog on and has plenty of storage for plates, glassware, napkins and silverware.
-I love a good accent wallpaper that isn't too fussy and boasts a great pattern.
-Lighting should be clean and unfussy. String up some outdoor bare-bulb lights for a nod to the back yard bbq.
-Loads of pig and butcher themed accessories are a must to get The Pit feel. Keeping them simple and modern removes the kitsch.
At the end of the post I put it all together in the design for a dining room!
