Dining Areas

Photography by Sarah Unger

Eye-catching accents put a contemporary twist on this refined dining room. Selected with comfort and style in mind, eight chairs featuring a soft, inviting patterned fabric encircle the glossy dining room table and set the stage for the rest of the décor. Overhead, an exquisite Schonbek chandelier showcases 18th-century style while lending timeless grace to the space. Further brightening the room are modern wall sconces that frame the heirloom china cabinet and create a simple symmetry that’s pleasing to the eye. A pair of metallic, elongated oval mirrors not only continue that symmetry, but also move light around the room for a stunning effect. These mirrors are set against Keystone Gray walls embellished with traditional wainscoting and punctuated by two windows clad with plantation shutters – an elegant addition. Complementing the shutters, the linen drapery features banded edges with shades of warm taupe. These textiles act as the finishing touch and allow the room’s iridescent elements to really shine.
