Dining Areas

Timeless and inviting, this dining room is refined yet approachable. The décor leans toward the grandmillennial style, which shows a respect and love for the patterns of the past but with fresh and spunky new colorways. The Baker Furniture dining table and china cabinet are reproductions of early Charleston, South Carolina, furniture, while the modern still life painting with a gentle nod to Matisse contrasts those pieces. A blend of family heirlooms and newer elements further accentuates the grandmillenial style, where classic and convenient coincide. The room is geared toward functionality and usability – features such as bleachable performance fabric on the antique dining chairs allow for easy cleaning, and that means worry-free use and enjoyment without compromising elegance and sophistication. Plenty of natural light fills the space and draws attention to the luxuriously patterned draperies, the muted blues and greens of which are colors that are repeated throughout the home.
