White is a classic tone often used in shabby chic designs.

White beadboard walls allow the sand-colored curtains and accessories to act as complementary accents rather than simply appearing in the background. For an elegantly shabby look, combine your rustic pieces with more contemporary counterparts.

My practical approach to dining room design is to choose amazing chairs with an understated table or just the opposite so that they aren’t competing to be the focal point. Here we selected a classic double pedestal table to compliment ten plush chairs with metallic woven interiors and soft white leather backs. The drapery is as clean as the chair’s design and the bar cabinet is intentionally white to allow the 72”x72” abstract painting to become the star of the show. It was one of the pieces from our client’s existing collection that I insisted we keep. This room is also an example of how well classics and contemporary marry. The chandelier, inspired by the painting, mimics the repetition in the panels and is shaped like the table to which it’s perpendicular. Harmony is a key ingredient to successfully designed rooms.
