Dining Room Round Up River Green Project

by Nicki on November 20, 2017

Did somebody say, Bermuda Blossoms?  This Schumacher Fabric is a billowing floral that makes a bold statement.  We love when our clients are willing to go bold!


The dining room table and chairs belonged to our clients. We had the chairs reupholstered to a more neutral color so that the fabric could steal the show. Combining the sophisticated table with the modern chandelier was a great way to mix up styles to create a transitional dining room.



The shell mirror hangs on the largest wall in the room and gives a nod to coastal and is highlighted with a pair of white White Glass Star lamps from Regina Andrew Designs.

Dining Room Roundup Gardner Terrace Part 2

by Nicki on November 7, 2017

The kids table never looked so good!  Our clients wanted a functional space in their kitchen that fit both their everyday use as well as overflow on holidays.  This banquet we designed is one of our favorites and has been approved by this little princess.

Dining Room Roundup Ralston Creek Project

by Nicki on October 24, 2017

Some houses call for a more casual dining space where our client’s can still host large groups but the table also functions on a more day to day level then the special occasion room used for holidays only!  This dining area in our Ralston Creek Project combines a causal-elegant perfection.


Here are 5 tips for making your dining space come together…

  1. Choose a table and chairs that reflect your style

  2. In a high traffic dining area skip the rug but in many dining rooms a rug  adds warmth

  3. Add statement lighting .. an amazing light makes all the difference. Be sure it matches the scale of the table and the room

  4. Personalize the room with Art.  Friends and Family gather here so add art for color and interest

  5. Style the table.. a simple arrangement or a row or something monochromatic will do the trick

Dining Room Roundup Gardner Terrace Project

by Nicki on September 28, 2017

With Thanksgiving and the holiday season fast approaching we will be highlighting some of our dining room projects over the next few weeks.  This space was part of our Gardner Terrace Project in Massachusetts.  The mix of polished and refined pieces in this room help create a show stopper of a dining room when you enter this home.

The Atlantis dining table is  quintessential mid-century modern and we love the dark walnut starburst base.  Hanging over the beautiful table is the George II Large Chandelier and is the perfect mix of form and function.


Our attention is drawn to the Monterey Buffet with its concave front and Greek Key accented foot detail and the pair of Raven lamps are hand-blown cased glass with shadow gray layered finished on a clear acrylic pedestal base.

This dining space is anchored with a geometric rug and custom Kimberly Chairs which help create a big personality in this modern traditional dining room.
