Method Monday

This design scheme came about while I was working with an existing client, brainstorming ideas for their dining room.  I wanted to do something glamorous.  The adjacent family room and kitchen included a lot of yellow, so for the dining room I decided to insert some brass for a touch of glimmer.  The room is somewhat small and intimate, so I wanted to smother it in saffron.  I thought of silk walls, saturated drapes, and a pure gradation of the same tone.  The light fixture is something I really fell in love with.  Because the plan for the walls and window treatments is monochromatic, the rug provides contrast.  The resulting scheme has a depth of color reminiscent of summer and happiness.
