It’s really wonderful when a decorator can begin a design project in a dining room that has such beautiful architectural features – good “bones” as we say!  And our before picture shows just such a room.  A nice space – plenty of room, but it’s certainly lacking the WOW factor that these homeowners desired.


Fantastic makeover!  The homeowners requested that this new room design be built around their existing glass top table and traditional area rug.  This newly designed eclectic space does a fabulous job of combining the traditional with the contemporary.  How was this blending of styles achieved?

First, linen parson’s chairs complete with dramatic silver nail head trim complimented the pedestal table base.  The upholstered chairs add texture and warmth to the space, while adding a very trendy, upscale look to the room.  Lighting plays a key role in this makeover – a dramatic chandelier and two stunning crystal lamps with black shades flank the crowning jewel of the room – the amazing wire framed mirror.  And let’s not forget the stunning antiqued mirrored credenza.  Its lattice design on the door fronts add just one more exciting design element to this outstanding dining room makeover.
