Traditional Dining Room Gets a New Design

This traditional dining room was outdated. I started the renovation by changing the flooring in the entire living area from a peach and gray porcelain busy tile to a soft and warm wide plank wood look porcelain tile. I kept the chair rail and removed everything except the Hunter Douglas Pirouettes. The walls are knock-down textured so I had the area under the chair rail skim coated to make it smooth. This added contrast and a different texture.

I had custom mill work done to dress the entry way on both sides of the room. I designed three proportionate frames and had them constructed to hold custom fitted mirrors, which were placed on one wall to add depth and rhythm, as well as reflect light. Two glass wall sconces were placed in the middle of two of the mirrors. The cascading pendant light at the center of the room creates visual interest. The chairs are custom made using a Kravet Couture fabric on the backs and silver nail heads to complement the light fixture. The sconces were chosen because they were highly textured and artistic, but in a clear glass so as not to push the design over the top. The room is softened by the hand made live-edge table in a custom finish. The natural look and soft matte finish quiet the bling of the glamorous light fixture. The painting is from the Architectural Design Show in New York City.
