i've been working on a bunch of projects this past summer and fall and just a couple of weeks before christmas, we got this beauty photographed by the amazing kate renyi of ker photography who also happened to hook me up with this client. 🙏 so a big thank you to both kate and my clients!
when i came to the house for the first time, i got the full tour but the first order of business was making this dining room sing. the only things in the room were the dining table and some not-so-pretty curtain panels. they wanted to keep the table since it was new (even though they didn't completely love it) but otherwise it was a completely blank slate!
we needed non-electrical sconces and i think these were such a pretty find!
the console had to be really narrow in order not to make the room feel cramped. i found this faux shagreen and brass one and nearly squealed. it fits perfectly!
unfortunately the box that i ordered didn't come in time so the one above is just a stand-in but the other accessories are almost all from west elm and they work so well.
a few more details - we did double trim on the drapery just to give it a little extra oomph.
these chairs from restoration hardware have such a pretty shape and maybe more importantly, they're comfortable!
we had to get one of those cool blurry shots with me carrying flowers to nowhere. 😉
the chandelier deserves a close up too. i love how this shot caught the art reflecting in the little ball hanging down.
it feels so good to wrap up this room and i don't think you really notice the style of the table anymore because the rest of the room elevates it. i am so incredibly happy to report that my clients say they walk in this room just to stare at it. next we're moving on to the living room which will be super fun to work on. spoiler alert - the plan is to add paneling to the walls and slather it in gray paint! 😍
