Hilary's design for this traditional dining room incorporates a bold wall color and polished accents to compliment the rich design of the dining room table. The brass picture frames, mixed metal candle sticks, and fresh exotic flowers add to the luxuriousness of the room.
To help the home feel more open, designers installed archways, which, in the dining room, complement the windows that allow in natural light. The windows and archway help this space feel more functional, but also help make it a part of the rest of the house, instead of tucked away as it had been previously.
The homeowners wanted a space that held to the traditional design they love but was also a bit more updated, so designers used a neutral color palette with touches of blue to create a warm space with a traditional character.
Varied fabrics and textures in shades of blue come together to provide a look of beauty and feeling of peace in this open dining space.The ten-light chandelier casts a warm glow over the eclectic mix of seating.
In the formal dining room, the foundation of the room started with an incredible handpainted wallpaper in rich olive greens, silvers and cranberry tones. A large walnut table pairs with upholstered chairs in neutral green, while a soft orange sofa adds extra comfy seating.
Luxurious tapestry in rich shades of forest green, chartreuse and burgundy adorn the walls of this dining room. The cotton velvet curtains tie in the red from the berries within the wallpaper pattern and match the velvet finish of the upholstered dining chairs. A traditional crystal chandelier completes the composed and beautiful design.
This interior dining space gets a grand treatment, with seating for 14, along with dramatic lighting in the form of a spindly chandelier that creates interesting shadow play on the molded ceiling. An arched fireplace follows the room's uniquely curved lines. Meanwhile, arched doorways lead to the home's wine chambers.
The formal dining room features a barreled ceiling painted in 24k gold leaf and depicting a scene of Alexander the Great conquering Persepolis by Henry Wadsworth Moore. A musician’s balcony overlooks the space and is accessed by a glass door.
Coffered ceilings and a beautiful chandelier add stately presence to the formal dining room. The color palette again takes its cues from the seaside setting, on full display outside the bank of windows.
