Howdy . . .
Mixed a little work and pleasure with one of my favorite clients over the holiday break. Maggie and I got together with Susan for a little holiday Thai, when we got around to talking business I was thrilled she gave me the green light for her new dining room design. Thrilled because I have wanted to use this wall paper from Phillip Jeffries from the moment I saw it !
How gorgeous is this grass cloth !
We have worked together over the past couple of years transforming her town house. We started in the back with her great room, moved to her home office, into her upstairs landing and now it's time for the dining room. This space is a bit on the awkward side in that you step into the space from the front door and the "hall" to the main living room cuts right though it. In an effort to avoid jogging around the dining room table my thought is to move the light fixture off center and create a banquet in the corner offsetting the dining table and chairs.
A corner banquet and three of these silver leaf side chairs surround a wood dining table with lucite legs all on top of a Stark jute rug. It's now the type of space you can just hang out with a cup of coffee and a lap top or have dinner with friends. The best part of it all, the drama you will see right at the front door ! Love it and can't wait.
Take a look at the other rooms we created in this fun and unique townhouse . . .
