Hello All! It’s already Wednesday! Can you believe the week has been racing by so fast? I’m still hard at work packing like crazy, and man, I am getting such a good workout!
Ok, so today’s post will be one of those short but sweet ones I mentioned in a previous article. The picture you are looking at is a project I completed about two years ago. This room belongs to some really awesome clients that I have been working with now for several years. I have done pretty much every room in their home – one project after another. In fact, I have 2 fans and a custom iron bed to install in the near future. I’ve seen them through marriage, 2 beautiful babies and one more on the way, the upcoming wedding of an older daughter, and many other moments in between. I think I’m a family member at this point, and they were a referral! (The power of referrals :-))
Ok, so back to the room……This I believe was project #4. They wanted a calm, serene dining room for when they entertain. They are a devout Jewish family, so alot of their meals and prayer time happen in this dining room. The room is very small…..the smallest dining room I have worked with, but they needed as much seating as possible and storage for prayer books. Tall order for a small room!
We decided on a monochromatic blue/gray color scheme. The walls were painted in a Ralph Lauren Regent Metallic and has a subtle, soft shimmer. My clients enjoy the juxtaposition of rustic with refined, so they were quite excited when I found the perfect size dining table, made from reclaimed wood in Indonesia. The side chairs were custom upholstered in a wonderful blue/gray fabric and the host/hostess chairs are actually occasional chairs turned dining chairs. They were also custom upholstered in two different fabrics for a unique and luxurious touch. The zig-zag bookshelf was the unexpected element in the room, and was the perfect size to fit that small space. And who can ignore the beautiful drapery panels, made from a luscious stripe silk fabric. Even better looking in person!
Fabric Selection For Dining Room
My favorite part…the fabric selection. My client loves fabrics as much as I do, and I always get to use the finest on her projects :-). She was completely in love with this beautiful selection of silks and silk blends, velvets, and cut velvets. Notice the beautiful textures?!
I also added an area rug and the beautiful crystal drum chandelier, and very minimal accessories – adding a pop of orange in the table setting. My clients and I were really excited about this room!
Here a couple more shots for your viewing pleasure.
Ok, so maybe this article again wasn’t so short, but I love to tell the story behind my projects. I am so fortunate to work with wonderful clients 🙂
