i would venture to say, that most dining room designs begin with a dining table.
in my case, i started with this fabulous wallpaper from schumacher.
it's charcoal, but has a navy cast. i knew i wanted chartreuse as my accent color, it's amazing with the wallpaper and ties into the adjacent living room.
next, the dining table. i had my heart set on a design classic, the platner dining table.
i love vintage furniture, and have a lot of it in my house, like this pair of ward bennett chairs. i know a deal when i see one, these just needed some new fabric.
a perfect opportunity to bring in the chartreuse and use a combination of fabrics.
a sumptuous velvet and my other obsession, faux bois!!!
so, what to hang above this gorgeous table?
i already had this amazing midcentury buffet with intricate wood paneled doors.
to keep the room warm in the midst of all the metal, i decided on a wood chandelier.
what to do about dining chairs? simple, while perusing one of my favorite local shops, mid century salvage, i came across a set of breuer chairs. scott, owner of MCS, did an amazing job reupholstering them in this graphic linen that solidifies the design scheme.
so how does it look together?
see for yourself, check out the before and after pics!
this is one of my favorite rooms in the house. bathed in light, it is the perfect spot for morning coffee, but has a moody lounge vibe for nighttime entertaining.
design swell. live well.
design is a way of life.
