I created this dining room for my dear friend, Christy, who has also been a client for several years. She’s an absolute treasure to collaborate with! We both love mixing old and new, modern and traditional elements to create a unique and “collected” space. We changed her existing (and never used) formal living room into her new dining room. Since she and her husband love to entertain, the former living room was an ideal place to create a gorgeous dining room that now seats 10.
We started with the gorgeous dark gray Schumacher wall covering and the incredible beaded chandeliers. I designed the iron and antique mirror dining room table, which we had made locally. The 1960s host chairs were painted and recovered in rich peacock blue velvet. The washable slipcovered chairs are soft and timeless, and they provide the perfect backdrop for colorful art and family photos.
I have loved working on this home over the years because it’s a “real” home for a wonderful “real” family of five! They are gracious entertainers, and they allow me to implement all my ideas into a space that is uniquely “them.”
