dramatic dc dining room

project type: complete design

 

For this project, the client was looking for a clean and simple aesthetic with a dramatic twist to liven up a completely empty dining room.  To create this perfect marriage of simple, modern, and dramatic, we knew we had to focus on one thing: contrast.  Because the space had a lot of architectural interest but not a lot of natural light, we wanted to find a way to highlight the drama in the ceilings and moldings without making the room feel small or closed in.  Painting everything a bright white created a monolithic appeal to the walls while still having a lot of texture and visual interest, and opting for dark but simple table and chairs created a focal point  in the space.  To anchor everything, a beautiful transitional chandelier sits above the table, while gray velvet curtains with white linen shears add a bit more softness and additional texture to the space.  The room needed to feel elegant for adults, but be durable enough to withstand the antics of a toddler.  Ultimately we landed on a design that was timeless, chic, and perfect for a party or everyday use.
