DINING ROOMS - BEFORE AND AFTER
Amherst, NH Dining Room
When I first visited this home in Amherst, my clients asked what they should do for their living and dining room as these two rooms were connected. The first thing that came to mind is to lighten the paint color and update the furniture and lighting. We ended up literally getting rid of everything and start from scratch. This included new upholstered furniture, rug, tables, lamps for the living room and a custom-built round dining room table, new dining chairs, lighting and custom draperies for the dining room.
All of the artwork is original. My friend and photographer, Celeste Guidace and I collaborated on selecting her work for the images over the sofa. We decided on the scale and layout and framing. It is quite a show stopper when one enters the room!
I was commissioned to paint the abstract floral painting for the dining room. We selected the hand-blown glass pieces to accompany the painting.
Notice how much lighter and airy the spaces are as well as how much larger the rooms appear. The home owners and I are very pleased on the outcome!
Dining Room in Needham, MA
This was a room that need a lot of attention. The easy part was that it was in a gorgeous turn-of the-century home with great traditional bones. The home owners had taken down the wallpaper but then stopped as they were paralyzed on what to do next. That’s when I was called to come in and help.
My crew of talented contractors helped me transform this space. We installed the beautiful grass woven Thibault wallpaper. We installed crown molding, painted all the trim and I designed and installed all new window treatments.
