This room was so fun to do! My client knew what table, chairs and buffet table she wanted to use, but then gave me free reign to do whatever I wanted...all with in budget of course but you get the idea. So I did! I just love dining rooms, especially ones that are their own separate rooms, like this one is. I wanted the general colors to match the rest of the home, but wanted it to make its own statement as well. This room needed some architectural detail first so I had some paneling installed and LOVE the way it turned out. Adds so much character and interest to the room rather then just repainting the walls. I went with the "board and batten" style paneling, and went high up the wall to make a big impact. Then had the walls painted a deep peacock blue color to match the accent color in the living room that is right across the way. Also, had a chandelier installed as well. Not as easy as it sounds... given this room had no "J Box" for one. But had a wonderful electrician install what we needed, picked out a beautiful chandelier and we were on a roll!
Love the big difference of the before's and afters of this room...hope you do as well!
