Whoa busy, but so productive! Client dining room sneak peak...

First things first I have to apologize, it has been a long time since I've posted. But being a very busy mom during the summer...well that pretty much says it all. However I have actually just finished up a gorgeous dining room. 

This couple have been such a pleasure by far to work with. They were willing to a little outside of their comfort zone. (And you should have seen the look on their face when I told them they needed 2 chandeliers). The rest of their house they have done very well but were just stumped when it came to the dining room. They had already purchased the Restoration Hardware monastery table and ordered all matching grey velvet chairs including arm chairs for the ends. I am definitely a fan of different head chairs. 

So we were off and running. My client and I were searching Craigslist for days for just the right arm chairs that I could customize from my great upholsterer. So he found some (from another designer...still need to send her the redo). I found a really cool modern fabric in teal and navy diamond pattern that we could tie in with the gray velvet. It worked perfectly! 

I then had to convince the homeowner to move his audio control system so we could add some drama to that main wall. Luckily it went off with out a hitch and I found these beautiful sconces. And how can you not pick your jaw up off the floor with those TWO gorgeous chandeliers! They were way out of their comfort zone but now wouldn't change a thing. I'm so glad they trusted me!

To top it off we added shadow box moulding to all the  upper walls and a beautiful Modern Masters Metallic  paint on the ceiling. It's such a deceptive color it changes with the day!  And the wife wanted COLOR, so I threw in these gorgeous Peacock blue stationary panels. I can not say enough how much fun this project was! Pro pix coming soon, these don't do justice!
