One Room Challenge Part II: Inspired By Art

by Nicki and Teresa on April 9, 2015

Welcome back everyone! We welcome you again to our journey on the One Room Challenge  part II: Inspired By Art With this dining room remodeling makeover and see how this room evolves. And in case you missed (or forgot) last weeks post-here’s a little refresher for ya: 

~Our fabulous client has asked us to redecorate her dining room area.  She doesn’t know how she wants to change the room, so currently it is just being used as storage. Our client requested that it to be a “grown up space”  where she can have her whole family for Thanksgiving.  She has a lot of pieces of art that she wants to incorporate, but she doesn’t know how or if this is the right space for placement.~

Now that you’re caught up-This week our client has fabulous art work and want to see if we can somehow put it to use:

  The art work that has been collected over time is the inspiration for the color scheme.    The dining room is the first room you see when you walk into the house and so we are choosing a color scheme that will pull everything together.

When decorating a space we like to think of the 60-30-10 rule: Divide the colors in the space into components of 60 percent of a dominant color, 30 percent of a secondary color and 10 percent of an accent color. The walls will most likely be the majority, the upholstery would represent the secondary color and accessories. The colors are properly balanced and there is a shot of color (the 10 percent color) for interest. Since the art work was very colorful we didn’t want the room to end up being “too loud” so to tone it down, we used the Aiken Ivory DCR002 from Sherwin Williams– a neutral wall paint color.

 We are off and running with our color scheme- using five of  Lacefield Designs fabrics: Matlo Apricot, Stone Linen, Trevi Apricot, Kai Apricot,  and Isla Apricot.

We are also  incorporating a silver leaf Greek key pendant light Nova S Chandelier from World’s Away
