Pull Up A Seat... The Dining Room is Complete

 The Hip Family Dining Room is complete and I am so excited to share the pictures with you!   It is an elegant and fresh space where the family can entertain and a jaw dropping first impression since it is the first room you see upon arriving to the home.  I kept the color scheme monochromatic using different shades of silver but in a variety of textures to keep it special.  By introducing pops of color in the art, center piece, and flower arrangements the room gets a little spunk.  

Thank you Andrew Slaton Photography for the great shots!
 The polished table top and metal tones contrast beautifully with the rich velvet and silk tones to keep your eye interested.  
 The drapery tassel is the beautiful chain I salvaged from the decorative light fixtures!  Since the ceiling height is 8 feet, it couldn't be used.  Instead they were re-purposed as an unexpected element in the space.  For the center piece and art I added a little bit of fun and punchy color to keep the space from feeling too serious.  After all this is a REAL family and it needed to reflect the hip youthfulness they exude!
The family wanted a space they could use without worrying about the occasional spill, so everything had to be durable and cleanable.  The table top is made out of white quartz which is completely stain/maintenance free and the chairs are covered in a stain resistant fabric that has a rich texture.
Another great pop of color is added with a floral arrangement standing out against the elegant collection of silver, crystal and wood candlesticks.  A beautiful multifaceted mirror sets the perfect backdrop while reflecting more light into the space.


  1. Love it Bonnie!!! Those light fixtures are to die for and I love how the the room looks totally hip and current but still seems warm and cozy!

  2. GREAT job Bonnie! I love the entire room and would kill for that table! Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving :)
