When I met with this client to design their dining room, their desire to break away from the traditional shingle style exemplified by the home’s exterior architecture totally inspired me. They wanted simple elements with no clutter or fuss. Because the room began as a blank slate, we started with a completely fresh palette.
In this room, I truly enjoyed using so many creative and unique elements. The cowhide chairs from Ligne Roset provided adult seating around the dining room table and, combined with a bench on the other side of the table, make an unconventional seating arrangement. The lovely drizzle chandelier from Ochre acts as a fantastic piece of jewelry for the entire room. On the walls, digital art prints reinforce the dining room’s modern feel. In addition, I loved the window treatments for this dining room. The pattern reminded me of delicate lanterns floating through the sky. The large looped wool carpet from Patterson Flynn & Martin softens and warms the room.
I was honored to be an A List Winner for At Home magazine’s Winter 2011 issue with this dining room. In the magazine, the dining room was described as “bold, brash, and contemporary, a perfect combination to make a traditional home feel modern.” What an amazing experience, to be recognized for doing something I love!
