Hillcrest Dining Room
This long time client of ours recently moved to a new home and wanted to incorporate some of her favorite furnishings into a fresher look. She had this lovely dining table and upholstered chairs; however, the fabrics were red, golds and greens. The key to making these colors work with a more updated color palette is to find a fabric, rug and artwork that have those colors as well as other colors in them. We were able to find all three things, and now the reds and golds are an accent in the space. The walls above the wainscoting are painted Sherwin Williams’ Escape Gray (SW6185) which is a lovely gray/green color. We added a sleek sideboard in the recessed area that coordinated perfectly with the table and chairs. We reused the homeowner’s mirror and lamps and added accessories to complete the vignette. We flanked the recessed area with artwork in reds and the green/gray colors as well as a large landscape on the adjacent wall. We dressed the window with drapery panels in a vibrant floral fabric which incorporated all of our colors. Our muted rug also supports our updated color palette. And last but not least, the gold chandelier is truly a focal point in the room.
This is one gorgeous Dining Room, and I do not think we could have done any better if we had started from scratch. Red and golds have been overdone in the past, but I love red and I love incorporating it as an accent in a space. This is definitely “red done right!” Enjoy!
