Casually Upscale

In this stunning sunroom turned dining area, a cozy take on traditional styling has created a welcoming gathering space. A long, burnt umber trestle table serves as the grounding focal point, and modernized traditional chairs are covered in the room’s blue and white color scheme. Blue and white evokes a traditional, Southern, elegantly upscale ambiance, while the arrangement helps keep the space approachable and functional for a large family. A large cream-colored area rug covers the porcelain tile for a more comforting foundation; above, the ceiling is painted in a faint blue to continue the sophisticated color palette. Upholstered, patterned parsons chairs head each end of the table, while custom window treatments with blackout liners help the room feel complete and provide versatility for the room’s functions. To one end, a gorgeous white china cabinet in a primitive finish elevates the area, displaying blue and white china, a classic inspiration piece for this dining area.
