A Sophisticated, Transitional Dining Room




This client moved to a new home through a job transfer. While their home size doubled in the move may be seen as a challenge, it was not a challenge at all. In the end, we had to fill the home with new furnishings since they brought very little with them.

The challenge with this space was the high ceilings. Our client wanted a space that was comfortable and welcoming without feeling too large. She wanted to use the existing chairs that she brought with her move. She wanted to use jewel tones in emerald green and deep blue.


The dining room was spacious enough to reuse two of the chairs that the client brought with them in their move. We created a seating space with the two chairs and a console in front of the large high wall that greets visitors as they enter the room. We used a large mirrored console to reflect natural light. We added jewel tones through the addition of artwork, the area rug, and reupholstered chairs. The large design on the inside back of the chairs gave a pop of colour and design to the room.
