Yay its finally starting to feel like Spring around here so I thought I’d share a fresh dining room makeover that feels very fitting for the season.
I was called to do this project after we successfully updated their family room last year. I find a lot of people like to give me a “tester room” and once that goes well, we move on to a few more. Most of my clients are working with an interior designer for the first time and it can be a little daunting. I have no problem taking it slow and learning how to best bring their design goals to fruition. In this case, I had a good sense of style and the design and the room came together quite smoothly.
My client wanted to remove the dated elements (carpet, wallpaper) mix up the furnishings a little (So. Much. Blond. Wood.) and brighten things up in here. Another main goal find a dining table that was more conducive to entertaining. The loose leaves were too heavy for her to lift when she needed to extend the table. After reviewing options we decided to build our own and teamed up with Coldren Design and build our own self-storing extension table. The metal base provides a nice modern touch to the wood top. And then there’s the sideboard. We decided to keep theirs but had it lacquered the most amazing shade of blue (BM Bainbridge Blue) and WOW what a difference it made! Art and curtains complete the room and add a necessary dose of color and pattern.
