For this apartment renovation, designer Amy Elbaum relied on simple furnishings and neutral colors for the dining area, coordinating with the kitchen and living room in the open concept space. White walls and gray drapes create a backdrop for the modern dining set that features chrome as the tie-in element. A bubble chandelier completes this stylish look.
The design in the living room was kept elegant and simple so as to complement the large space, rather than compete with it. Large sliding glass doors allow in plenty of natural light, while the bookshelves add elegant display spaces. To complement the light walls, designers created a custom patina to paint onto the floor rather than staining it.
The simple color scheme with pure white walls and a combination of natural textures gives the dining room a modern, European-style elegance that fits this extensively renovated urban home, which celebrates the Scandinavian culture of the region.
As seen on Rehab Addict, host Nicole Curtis placed candles in the center of the dining room table.
Elegant Designer Dining Room
Lacquered walls and ceiling set a stunning scene in an elegant dining room by interior designer Suzanne Kasler. The dining table and chairs are from her own collection for Hickory Chair, while the chandelier is regal with its crystal tassels. Instead of the traditional tablescape, she used plaster geometric forms purchased at a Paris flea market. The room was in a Southeastern Designer Showhouse in Atlanta.
Dine in elegance in this gray-blue dining room with wainscoting detail trim. Crown molding with a taupe stripe highlight the architectural detail and relate well to the curtains, rug and natural grass dining chairs.
This beautifully updated estate now reflects the family’s exquisite and renown personal style with elegance and panache. Everything about this traditionally styled dining room exudes sophistication from the chandelier to the curtains.
A contemporary pedestal table and six sleek upholstered chairs create a lovely vignette inside this transitional dining room. Draperies with a subtle sheen accentuate the stunning outdoor view. The ebonized hardwood floor and shimmering walls and ceiling add a glamorous edge to the traditional architecture.
A wrought iron chandelier with candle-like lights accents this English-style dining room. Straffordshire China in country blue lines the shelves of a wide buffet table behind a long dining table and Windsor dining chairs.
Custom draperies are priced with three elements in mind: panel width, pleat style and lining. For rooms geared toward subtle, serene aesthetics, one pair of single-width panels per window often does the trick. Solids work best in achieving a less-is-more look; if you do choose a pattern, limit your selections to patterns with small or medium repeats.
