Dining room redesign


dining room redesign

This is a project that I loved working on as it involved a room-by-room transformation.  The family was thinking of moving but once they looked at the options and realized how much they loved their home, they decided to invest in a complete makeover. Given the budget involved in such a project, one room was tackled at a time with incredible detail and organization, thanks to my client who was a natural in the process.  My role was to act as a a “design coach” throughout, linking her to resources + ideas, providing feedback throughout and being a sounding board for decisions.

The goal for the dining room was to create a completely new and fresh look, one that felt open and bright with some pops of color.  The dining room is used for family meals, art projects, homework and more so we wanted it to be an accessible space and one that worked for day-to-day use as well as entertaining.  My client found the Louis Poulsen lamp which is the pièce de résistance–and at night the light it casts is absolutely gorgeous.  You’ll see from the photos how much evolved over the process and what a completely different room it now is!
