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.
