This Savor Sunday

See What We Love About This Design

Each Sunday we’ll share a design that caught our eye and we took some time to savor.  With the Easter holiday coming up this week, let’s look at this dining room shared via house beautiful .  At first glance we see the amazing lacquered walls.  With a closer look, we also see all of the carefully chosen details that make this room so attractive.

We Spy With Our Designer Eye….

  • shining, multi layered lacquered walls that remind us of the Aegean Sea
  • a crystal chandelier dripping with baubles
  • hidden, oversized walnut doors with gleaming brass handle plates
  • deep walnut wood floors peeking out from under a natural fiber area rug with a canvas edge
  • hurricane wall sconces to hold tall, tapered candles…let’s be sure to light them every night!
  • perfectly detailed, snowy white, cove crown moldings that lead down to deep cased doorways and wainscot wall panels
  • a mahogany traditional dining table wide enough for the entree’ to be served
  • a finely detailed, half round small console with collector plates and more hurricanes for additional mood setting candlelight
  • the colorful oil painting on the adjacent hall wall just yearns to be part of the experience
  • oh my these chairs!  Parisian in nature, patina just perfect, with perhaps a soft velvet, almost animal print seat cover
  • lets look at the colored glass, rose and gold goblets and a cobalt vase with the softest florals…peonies?
  • grandmother’s linen napkins to mix with the black and gold trim china, both on standby
  • bet the silverware is a beautiful mix of history from a weekend flea market
  • empty nester mom waiting to have everyone back home for a Sunday brunch
  • dad fussing in a button down oxford mom insisted he wear for a few hours
  • a son, and his girl you love, driving in from the city for the day
  • a daughter with her young family teaching the little ones about family traditions
  • the table scattered with the remnants of the wonderful meal
  • a seldom used room in our homes loving every minute of the day!

Savor This Sunday!

    1. As a client in the Chicago area reminded me the other day, we did this to her walls in a dining room and ceiling in the living room years ago. It has been a staple of classic designers for years. A bit of a pain to get it right but when it is…oh it’s so right!
