This week I was excited to start working on the dining room of a current client who I posted about previously here. We're still working with coppers, chocolates and touches of red and we're using a lot of texture and a little bit of glam.
My client requested a built-in banquet on one side of the table. I loved the idea so we ran with it. Here are some quick drawings of what we plan on doing.
We're planning to build storage below the bench cushion for holiday dishes and other items that don't get used very often and then open glass shelving above for more every day glassware and dishes.
With all the espresso wood being installed with the built-in I wanted lighter drapery to add contrast. I fell in love with this silk fabric (below) and it inspired the rest of the fabric selections and color pallet.
For extra texture we're using this gold and chocolate grass cloth on the ceiling.
I'm in love with this dining table. The hammered polished nickel pedestal base is a perfect fit. The metal adds another texture and it's a pretty contrast to the dark rosewood top.
Of course, no dining room is complete without a chandelier.
