Frankfort Dining Room
I love a beautiful Dining Room, and this one is definitely a favorite! This Dining Room belongs to our client in Frankfort. She had all of this lovely furniture to work with. She also had what most of us have had at one time or another – red walls! We looked to the existing rug which she wanted to keep as well as the other colors throughout the home for our color inspiration. We knew that fabric selection was going to be very important in the updated space as we were adding drapery panels, new slipcovers for the parsons chairs and a decorative pillow for the accent chair. We pulled three fabric combinations for the homeowner to chose from. She took the fabrics home and lived with them in the space, but knew right away that the green option was the way she wanted to go. For the walls, we had her contractor add wainscoting below the existing chair rail and painted it to match the trim. Above the chair rail, we selected Sherwin Williams’ Comfort Gray SW6205 which worked great with the rug and fabrics. I am nor a fan of chair rails but I am a fan of wainscoting in a Dining Room. All of the white trim color lightens up a room and allows you to do a strong color above it without overpowering the room. The fabrics really are showstoppers in this space – I adore the velvet on the parsons chairs, the embroideredlinen is perfect to frame the window and the crewel pattern on the decorative pillow ties all of the colors together. Her existing artwork and lighting are highlighted more with the new color scheme. And hats off to the homeowner for being open to a unique centerpiece – 3 green glass globes with gold detailing paired with a long bronze leaf bowl. Stunning!
We love being able to work with a homeowner’s existing pieces and make them feel fresh with color and fabric. Enjoy!
