We designed this modern classical dining room a while several years ago. The client was more into the elegance and sophistication of tradition style but would like to have a more modern and clean-lined look. Besides choosing simplified classical furnishings with modern twists, we kept walls as clean possible to provide a perfect backdrop for all of the traditional furnishings. And we added same wall-color wall trims to create depth and dimension. Continue reading →
One of the fun things we love to do at home is to sit around the dining table with candles on and soft music on at the end of the day. We feel we really need this to wind down each day and to get ready for a good-night sleep. we also love to put up a festive themed tabletop on each holiday since we celebrate almost every holiday as much as we can. Besides kitchen, a dining room is the place where people get together with families and friends for formal parties or casual gatherings all the time. So, the design of a dining room is really important for you to enjoy by yourself to the maximum and nourish your loving relationships. And you want this space to be unique and reflect your own personality and of course well designed. Today we are going to talk about 12 ways to devise a one-of-the-kind dining room.
1. Decide function first. Before you start the design process, you need to know how you would like to use this space—a formal dining or a casual gathers only? The way how you want to use the space will set the foundation for the design process.
Although the dining room is getting more casual and relaxed, still, most of home owners still want to make their dining room very formal with a big wow factor. If this the case, the striking artwork, unique wall-treatment, flooring, right light fixtures, one-of-the-kind furnishings and upscale custom furniture might be the options for you to consider. In this New Yorker Designer Alex Papachristidis designed dining room, the light-grey-colored hand-painted wallpaper is one of the key features for this stunning sumptuous dining room. Also the gilded Louis XVI dining chairs really stand out from the muted almost monogram color palette. The crystal chandelier, the gilded clock further emphosis the wow factor and luxury feel. So our suggestions here to crrate a formal dining room: invest in a good-quality dining table setting and choose furnishings to compliment the dining table setting.

2. Have a focal point.
The trick here is to make the table the center of attention, so that your guests are compelled to take a seat and dinner companions are the main focus. Once the table is situated, arrange all other furnishings and accessories so that they complement this focal point. Also read this article on tables-capes.

3. Gold bold with colors and surface treatments.
Unique colors and textures completely transform a space by creating interesting textures and surfaces in the major horizontal planes: the floor, the table, and the ceiling.
4. Mix and Match.
Mixing and matching furnishings, lighting, or artwork is a fun part to design your dining room. It often creates unexpected result and makes the style of the space timeless.
5. Always looking for custom furnishings.
We assume you want to have a dining room unlike any other. So please always look for custom furnishings. A one-of-a-kind table or unique chairs will help a dining room stand out. The custom, live-edge wood table is the focal point of this space

The theme behind our Home for Holidays 2019/2020 is being festive yet without being too much traditional and ornate. We stay with a neutral color palette like pearl white, white-on-white, cream, various brown shades, wood tones while incorporating gold, silver, crystals, muted fashion-forward colors to light up the spaces. The flowers and greenery definitely make the spaces alive and cheerful.
For the dining room, we use light lavender hand-painted Chinoiserie wallpaper to create a very relaxing, calming and feminie feel which is balanced off by masculine dark brown upholtered dining chairs. Also we use a lot of large-scale sculpture-like vases and urns to mix and match with small delicate Christmas ornaments.
We use high and low items for this year’s Home for the Holidays. For the designer pieces, you can order through us and there some decor items you can order through Amazon.

This contemporary wingback chair has pulled up to the table in style. Its dramatic upper rail features softly curved Sepia Burl that has been edged in glistening Harvest Bronze. Fully upholstered in a luxurious smoky grey faux dupioni silk, the svelte back is narrower at the top than at the base of the tight seat. The chair’s exposed wood base, front tapered legs and rear sabre legs have been finished in Harvest Bronze.
In case you don’t have that much natural light in your dining room, it will be a perfect time to create an intimate dining space with an enveloped jewel-box specially when the chill weather is coming. We did the exact same thing for the dining room in the hill house in Orange County. Here are the 3 tips how we did:
Here are the 3 tips how we did:
Have a dark monochrome color platte on the walls and flooring.
Use crisp white marble and cream upholstered chairs to create a nice contrast.
Have a good lighting design: the over-sized drum chandelier is the focal point of the whole room.
Have a jewel-tones tablewares and decor objects to dress up the table—we use some glass pumpkins for the seasonal fall decor.
Use upholstered folding screens to invite warmth.
Have a touch of gold like the way we use on the picture frame and brass candle holder.
Hi, guys, Happy Saturday! As usual, I love to work in my garden a little bit earlier in the morning just to refresh my mind and feel good. My backyard garden looks so green and lush now.
So, today, I would like to share the recent makeover I just did for my dining room– new blush draperies, re-upholstered blue velvet French dining chairs, some fresh tabletops, please have a sneak peek:
Spring makes us feel cheerful, fresh, hope, and upbeat. The design of this dining room drew inspiration from nature. Lavender, pink, blush, green and red are all colors we find from spring gardens. With a touch of French sophistication, we celebrate spring in this elegant and feminine room.
Elegance is in the details— the subtle shades of pink, lilac, yellow, the craftmanship on the carvings, the finish of the wood surface , the sophistication of each object and the way how they relate to each other. When we finally put these together, it is a big wow to the client.
