The Dining Room
For the purposes of this house, I only wanted one dining space. We have the bar area and the island in the kitchen, but this is the only space with a table. I purposely wanted the pallet to be fairly neutral, as I LOVE adding color with plates and dishes depending on the season. The window treatment is a puddled functioning silk drape in a cream color.
I’ve had my plate rack, side board and table (all from Somerset Bay) for about 6 years now. I really do love them. Very french country and charming. Somerset Bay has an array of paint finishes to choose from.
Holly Mathis actually helped me select the fabric for the two chairs on either side of the sideboard, a couple of years ago. They are a sort of seaside blue color in a buffalo check. They still work great in this new space! And again, I’m able to feature my Grandma Emma’s teapot!
This little nook is a perfectly situated (under the stairs) drink station. The left side is a wine chiller and the right side are refrigerated drawers for all sorts of drinks to welcome our guests. The countertop is Carrara marble to match the kitchen counters.
I am a collector of transfer ware and red or pink is of course my favorite. I created two symmetrical gallery walls using my collection and tied in the middle wall (which is actually in the kitchen) with more red and white platters. The chandelier is from Aiden Grey.
The wall color is BM Northampton Putty. I had everything (the trim, wainscoting, and walls) painted to match. I wanted it all to create a soft yet interesting pallet for all the fun collections of dishes and holidays.
It’s relatively small and quaint dining space, however the table seats 10 so come be my guest for a meal! How do you use your dining room to connect with friends and family? Any fun traditions to share?
Thank you so much to Fidelis Studio for there amazing work!
Happy Connection Monday!
