Finally, here are the before and after photo’s I’ve been promising of a fabulous dining room project I have been working on over the past year. Yes you read that right, one year for one room. The whole dining room came together relatively quickly, however, the chairs took for-ev-er! The dining room was pretty bare bones to begin with when I got there. There were yellow walls with no moldings other than the crown and fireplace trim. They had one giant chandelier which was a great fixture but the scale was way off for the space so we relocated it to their breakfast nook. We opted to go with two chandeliers instead which works perfectly being that the dining room is so large. Since the room is such a long room I wanted to give it some architectural detail, so we added a chair rail and picture moldings to frame out the Portobello wallpaper scene by Paul Montgomery we chose. Not only are these particular client’s fun to work with, Paul Montgomery Studio is also amazing to work with. After several weeks of tweaking the scene to fit our room and the frames the carpenter and I drew up, they were able to lay out our paper so that the scene lines up perfectly all the way around the room. The buildings do not repeat, the people are the perfect scale, and no one is cut off half way down their body, it’s perfect. I absolutely love the way everything turned out!
