This open concept living room, dining room combination makes the most of the abundant natural light with a neutral palette. Clear chairs and a small metallic pedestal table provide the function of a dining space without blocking the view.
In the dining room it’s all about playing with industrial elements. The dining chairs are a unique find from a vintage warehouse in Brooklyn. The mix of metal, wood and curved lines makes them unexpected statement pieces in the dining area. Around a lucite and glass dining table, the area is topped off with a vintage green pendant. A photograph by family friend, Renato D'Agostin completes the space.
The kitchen, living room and dining room all open up to each other for a relaxed gathering space. A retro green chair features curved metal legs and is paired with a blue Oriental rug and Lucite coffee table. The mix of styles and eras creates a true eclectic look.
The dining room epitomizes Rachel’s approach to her open plan living and dining area. Modern, streamlined furnishings like the rope dining chairs around a solid concrete table add a textured feel to the space while making it clear that the real visual attraction is the art on the wall. The walls carry all of the color, pattern and energy of the room, while the furniture offers a comfortable respite from which to take everything in.
A marble herringbone backsplash separates the white marble countertops and built in white cabinetry. Lower black cabinets create a beautiful contrast to the white and echoes the thick black and white wall stripes. The black and white creates a light and dramatic look. Clear plastic chairs sit at the modern white dining table decorated with a bright orange bouquet.
A black and white kitchen opens to contemporary sitting and breakfast areas that incorporate colorful accents and varying textures. White waterfall marble counters cover the island’s black cabinetry, as glass pendants hang above. In the sitting area, velvet chairs in a deep cobalt color, accented by pillows with bold geometric prints, sit in front of a trio of large windows. A smooth lucite coffee table is topped with shaggy, sheep’s wool, and is anchored by a neutral rug. Mirrored panels in the nook reflect the room’s natural light, and the white table and mid-century dining chairs add subtle modern touches to the classic space.
