Eclectic in a Traditional Home

We love these fun, eclectic homeowners for so many reasons. One of which is that they are not afraid of showing their playful personality in their home. Our challenge was to help transform their dining room into something fun while still using traditional pieces already owned. The walls called for something special. Imagining a look and then choosing paint colors, we decided to make our own wall treatment. Calling in our favorite muralist, she painted a very long piece of canvas that when stretched, took up almost the entire length of the driveway. After choosing favorite parts of the piece, we made the cuts and had them placed exactly where we could see each section the best in the room. The space was instantly transformed, but a few details were still needed to give the room its zest.


On the dining table, a mounded floral with light colors and rounded leaves was designed as a soft transition. The seats of the existing chairs were reconstructed and upholstered in a vibrantly colored striated velvet. The taller floral on the cart was designed to have muted shades of orange and cream elements. The floral reflects back beautifully in the textured framed mirror which emulates the pattern on the chairs and has a lovely curve to the top. It feels traditional, but still works well in the area. Pulling the elements together helps add interest.



While we were at it, several fireplace surrounds needed a punch, too. The master needed a more elegant look so we went with a very subtle marbling. In the living room, the surround was aged so it goes better with the details already on the piece.


These rooms were such fun to help transform. We can’t wait for the next one!
