Dining in Elegance- A Before & After

This home was completed in spring of 2018 and my client’s family decided it was their dream home so to create long term memories and it was in the perfect location since their 10 year old son didn’t have to change schools nor friends and they all love the clean modern aesthetic.  The couple has stressful careers and wanted a sanctuary to retreat to after a long day. They love to entertain and the eight and a half foot long custom Old Biscayne dining table can sit several friends and family comfortably. The Pindler modern chenille upholstery fabric is the star of the room and the wood Antrim custom area rug sets off the entire table and chairs!

Serene Dining Room

The spectacular one-of-a-kind silver leaf dining table was provided by my client and is perfect in her new dining room.  Both the hardwood floors and hand carved beams were restrained to a warm antique brown finish.  Custom velvet drapes in a soft robin’s egg blue color adorn the large windows and the Swarovski crystal chandelier adds the perfect feminine sparkle to this timeless space.  The walls are painted in the Authentic Home Powder Green color and the ceiling is in the Authentic Home Champagne on Ice color which sets the foundation for a beautiful color palette for this stunning dining room and fireplace lounge.

Formal Dining Room

This traditional new home construction project featured a formal dining room adjacent to the front door. Situated across from the dining room was a small living room, which meant the paint colors in the two rooms, needed to complement each other. The Authentic Home COLOR Paint™ in Suede was selected for the walls, Champagne was used for the ceilings and trim, and Parchment was used for the hallway wall color.

Before & After

Transitional Dining

This new home construction project was designed with a very open floor plan and layout. The dining room was adjacent to a small living room and hallway, which meant paint colors needed to be chosen carefully to ensure cohesiveness to the overall flow of the house. The Authentic Home COLOR Paint™ in Brick was selected for the walls and Champagne was used for all of the ceilings and trim.

Before & After

Modern Townhome Dining Room

This contemporary, three-floor townhome was in need of some emergency paint help. Owned by a young urban couple, they had already worked with three designers and were left with a bright yellow wall color throughout the entire main floor. They were unhappy with the hue and it negatively impacted their moods and behaviors. Working with the existing black, white and grey-patterned draperies, the Authentic Home COLOR Paint™ in Pewter was selected to infuse the space with a young, contemporary and urban feel. Furniture, area rugs, lighting and art work with red accents were also brought into the space, and the result was the talk of the townhomes!

Before & After

Rustic Vacation Home Dining Room

It was very important to the couple that their entire extended family celebrate holidays at the home and therefore the dining table needed to seat 20 comfortably. Paul Jackson, a wood artist and former boat maker, hand-made the custom dining room table which is made of three different wood types; Wenge, Sapele and Moabi. The work of art has two center leaves and two bread board extensions on either end and seats 20 comfortably. The armless high back chairs were upholstered with a Robert Allen woven fabric and the waterfall photo opposite the furniture hutch was taken by a family member. The custom Ralph Lauren roman shades, the candelabra chandelier by Justice Design, the custom nature inspired Masland area rug, and the Café Au Lait colored paint by Authentic Home, instantly provide warmth to the room.
