"Before and After"

A Dining Room makeover!

Just wanted to share a simple room re-do or makeover that is very easy to accomplish.

The main Architectural details already exists. We have a dominating arched way with columns and baseboards and crown moulding. We also have a lighting fixture that needs no replacement at this time per customer's request.

There is a neutral color palette on the walls (Ralph Lauren-Parchment). The room has beautiful wood floors which makes the area more spacious and elegant.

After the makeover, you can see how a simple Black Farmers Dining Table and French chairs were added. A large Round Mirror (36" dia.) fills the wall very gracefully. Next to the mirror are 2 elongated Glass Sconces with fresh green grass.

The table Linens are in a natural texture pattern and the China is all in white. This look is very clean, simple and elegant. Enjoy!!!

p.s. Some other decorating ideas to add if budgets permits:

  1. Add an area rug.
  2. Select a Buffet or Server and place against the wall.
  3. Dress the chairs with seat cushions.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment.
