A classic formal dining room with built in corner cupboards and wonderful light. The challenge was to preserve the natural elegance of the room but infuse it with a casualness that suited the clients’ lifestyle.

Warm gold walls and bright white trim lightened and brightened the formality of the room. Used the clients’ existing dining set which, with its touches of sage worked so well in the room. Added a sisal rug with sage trim and wall decor. Voila!

An antique (replica) chest was topped by a great antique (actual) mirror. Topped the chest with some fun and inexpensive decor items and the result is a lovely and functional serving corner, Hung the adjoining wall with some big, bold plates to add a bit of dash to the room.
