Much like designing this client’s foyer & living room, the dining room design was approached in a similar fashion. After taking stock of my client’s design q&a (and a deep dive into their shared Pinterest board), I knew that family friendly, casual, yet infinitely elegant was going to be the name of their game in this space. To achieve that exact vibe, I set out on a hunt to find similar spaces that felt bright and fresh, filled with subtle texture and pattern, with just a hint of sparkle. Here are a few inspiration images I originally presented to my client…

Equipped with a solid jumping off point, I quickly got to work sourcing the items that would help translate the vibe into the real deal. Here is along the lines of where we originally began…
SOURCES :: 1) Art Print | 2) Art Print | 3) Art Print | 4) Vase | 5) Chandelier | 6) Blue-Grey Pillow | 7) Black & White Stripe Pillow | 8) Dining Table | 9) Dining Chair | 10) Check Pillow | 11) Light Grey Pillow
Ultimately, this is where we landed. Much like their living room, storage was essential here. With this in mind, we custom built a wall to wall bench designed to match their existing kitchen (seriously – you can’t even tell which came first – my millworker is such a gem). Not only did this addition to the space give us tons of additional storage below, but it also allowed us to tuck everything as close to the wall as possible, freeing up valuable square footage. Pin striped window treatments, a custom bench cushion, built-out in a high performance fabric, and a series of not-too-precious toss cushions added layers of warmth and texture, while the (wipeable!) faux black leather chairs brought in a hint of sparkle, and a dash of masculinity. All in all, I’m so thrilled with how this one came together.
For all of the final sources, in addition to more views of this dining room, head on over to the full reveal post for this project right here!
