Designer Vanessa DeLeon used plush fabrics and deep gray accent pieces to put an elegant spin on this complete home remodel. The eclectic teal and black dining room features an over-dyed turquoise rug from Creative Touch in Secaucus, N.J., while the table hails from Brooklyn-based artisan woodworker Palo Samko. The neutral walls are complemented by a faux-painted black and gray ceiling and black leather chairs around a rustic hardwood dining table with mismatched candle holders and two brass pendant lights.
In this formal dining room, designer Vanessa DeLeon achieves an appealing balance between feminine and masculine with a pair of romantic Kravet banquettes in black crushed velvet on the ends, accompanied by eight sturdy leather and antique gold barrel dining chairs. A stunning blue velvet rug adds a splash of color while pulling the look together.
This dramatically eclectic dining room from designer Vanessa DeLeon has a rustic wooden table and large windows allowing natural light to fill this space. The handcrafted table by Palo Samko features his signature butterfly joinery. “In this room, the table is the show-stopper,” says DeLeon, who continued the clean, crisp look with lightweight velvet panels in dark gray on the windows. The chandelier from Currey & Company is purposefully understated.
This midcentury modern breakfast nook has red upholstered dining chairs, white tulip dining table, blue upholstered banquette, brass pendant light, black and white modern wall tile, and blue and green shag area rug.
Built-in bookshelves deliver maximum functionality without sacrificing space. A brass pendant light and picture lights above the shelves contrast with the neutral elements, adding warmth and a feeling of vintage glam.
