Today, I am excited to share a recently completed e-design project. I worked on a dining room design and my client was keeping some of the furniture and mainly needed help with the final accessories and pulling the room together. Here is the before pictures of the space…
Isn’t this space absolutely stunning?!? I love all of the architectural details and molding. My client wanted to bring a more relaxed vibe into the room and make it a bit less formal. The moldings already take the room to a rather formal look, so I suggested lightening up the walls dramatically and adding some key accessories that will help make the space feel more casual and laid back, which is how the family lives in their home. My client definitely wanted to change out the chandelier to better fit their more simplistic style and I agreed. Here is the design plan I came up with…
The Design Plan
I am so excited that my client is thrilled with the design plan and is already in full swing with the changes. We are lightening up the walls, because although that deep navy is beautiful, it helps make the room feel formal. So we are replacing it with Horizon by Benjamin Moore, which is a very pale blue/gray. The new pendant from Rejuventation is the showstopper in the room. And the new textiles, including the four inch buffalo check fabric from Tonic Living will add a traditional, casual blend to the space. That fabric will be the new drapery panels and I can’t wait to see that transformation! We will replace the end chairs with similar options, yet with arms. I think the arm chairs will work better with the long table and overall scale of the space. Over the buffet, there will be a neutral vignette with an oversized driftwood sunburst mirror, gourd lamps and botanical prints. Here is a peek at the buffet vignette…

I am excited to show some progress and after photos soon. And thank you all for your sweet comments about my mantel series post! It was a fun week and I was glad to be a part of it.
