Happy Saturday! I hope you all have had a fabulous week! I can’t believe another week has gone by and it’s the weekend again! Today we are excited to share with you another client space. This one is the dining room that is next to the sitting room of the Classic Yorktown home we shared last week.
Just like the sitting room, this space already had a great start. The walls had been recently painted a soft neutral gray color and the home owner had a beautiful dining room table and buffet that had been passed down from family. We wanted to keep those elements but really add some updated touches to the space and give it both a sophisticated, yet also bright and fun feel!
The chandelier is really the showstopper in this space! It has an elegant look to it, yet still feels kind of quirky and fun too! Then after coming up with several different directions we could go in this room we decided to go with a navy and gold color scheme (and then we pulled that on through to the sitting room). The end chairs really anchor the space and pull out the beautiful blues in the artwork while the lighter side chairs pull out the softer more neutral tones in the room.
Here’s another shot of our starting off point (don’t worry, we didn’t get rid of the lantern – we love it and it is now hanging in the client’s kitchen! We just wanted something that made a bit more of a statement in here).
I love this view from the dining room into the sitting room and how the colors all work so well together and I love the mix of traditional pieces passed down from family tied together with newer more modern pieces. This room has pieces from the homeowner’s mother, grandmother and artwork drawn by her daughter! I feel like that makes the room feel particularly special!
This rug is actually the one from my living room! Ha! We had tried a couple other rugs in here and they just weren’t right so I decided it couldn’t hurt to try mine and it was perfect! It really pulled the whole space together. So we decided to keep it here!
We are still playing around a little bit with what to put on the bar cart but I love the fun shape of it!
And here’s a peek of the adjoining sitting room which we shared last week.
