Today, I'm sharing part two of a project I've been working on. You may remember the client's living room makeover that I posted last week. The couple also wanted a pretty space to entertain so we made some major changes to their dining room, as well.
Here's the "before" shot we all love to see:
The room was suffering from a case of too much wood furniture (all in the same tone), a lack of color on the walls that prevented you from even noticing the trim, and outdated lighting.
After making these changes, this is how the room turned out:
We started by painting the walls the same gray-blue as in the living room. Since these two rooms are only separated by a small foyer, we used color to connect them and make them feel like one larger area for entertaining.
By the way, I know several of you have asked. . . The paint color is Santorini Blue by Benjamin Moore:
Much to my delight, the client had this dining table and wicker chairs in storage! I love the texture that the chairs bring into the space, and they keep the space from becoming too formal.
I found the china cabinet at a consignment shop, in perfect condition; the back was already gold-leafed. My client received the bird prints as a wedding gift (isn't that the best part of working with newlyweds?).
