Happy Thursday and welcome to the series Why This Works… where I highlight a designed space and talk about why I love it so much! I found today’s dining room from pinterest and fell in love. This space was decorated by Tobi Fairley and was also seen in House Beautiful.
This space is so chic, fun, whimsical and just lovely! The design combines modern with traditional so well and I truly appreciate the attention to detail and subtle pops of color. The room’s walls and drapery are a soothing neutral, which allows the gorgeous chandelier, beautiful painted floors and bowl of fruit to really pop in the space! The traditional dining table was given a modern twist by painting it two different colors and adding a subtle painted detail to the legs. The table is accessorized with a bowl of fruit in a simple, but beautiful white bowl, giving the room a casual touch. The table is surrounded by four gorgeous chairs, with whimsical claw detail on the bottom and a glossy white paint on the legs. The upholstery fabric on the chairs is a nice graphic touch and works well paired with the creamy walls and drapery. The chandelier is one of the showstoppers in the room, drawing your eye up and giving the space the perfect pop of color. The next showstopper for me are the gorgeous painted floors! The striped detailing is a traditional nod to the room and made more modern with its playful choice in color. Overall, this space works! (I just wish I could see more of the space- it’s that amazing!) To see more of this beautiful home that Tobi decorated, visit here.
