Love you chairs!!! I'm wondering if your ceiling lt might be hung a titch too high...should be 30-36 over the table. I can see 2 fabulous sculptures on pedestals on either side of your draperies to add some drama,The mirrors should be more glam in gold. A sheepskin rug (or 2) under the table???

I am laughing because I just got rid of a large sheepskin rug in the living room. It she'd as much as my large beast. I do miss it however. I do have a gold mirror and coffee table in the adjoining living room. I think painting them may work. I have one pedestol that is a dark traditional wood that I hate. do u think I should bring it in and paint it? If so what color should it be. when I originally started doing the house years ago I started off liking mission and have since got over that. (And the marriage that came with it). I will lower the lighting for sure

Philadelphia. We have had a winter for the record books here. I guess that is why we are so interested in decorating, spending all of of free time indoors. I think I will get the bf to paint the table.

I like your mirrors, but wonder about the amount of chandelier light being re-directed at guests, so am throwing in a wall screen as a way to bring in some of Jan's gilt preferences. It also looks as though a rug will interfere with your registers; if so, I would concentrate on adding some beautiful vases on tall pedestals ( higher than the table) to the corners for now, and beefing up the chairs,( which I like but think need carpeting for balance, as Oasis has suggested) in a regency style for later on.

Good bones to your room, and I like the style. I am slightly confused by the 2 mirrors, although I understand 1 large mirror could be more expensive/heavy/etc. I would see consolidating the 2 mirrors into 1 large mirror and adding a thin console table, vase with pink blossoms (cherry tree branches with blossoms). You could use a pop of warm color in here. If you have more room to push the table away from the wall, I would consider a buffet below the mirror. The shelving with pottery looks a bit too stiff, and could use some playfulness (like the playfulness your chairs are giving off). Maybe some colorful cookbooks on 1 or 2 shelves or some item food related would be nice...or even more colorful/playful tea cups/tea pots/etc.

Loved all the comments. I agree with the discussion about the two mirrors . Saw one large quatrefoil one in gold I liked and now cannot find it! It was gold and very large. The shelving with pottery is very stiff, I have no idea what to do to do on there. I love the idea of a cowhide rug.. Would that be overkill as I have a black and white one upstairs. My only concern with that is my odd loved it too much! The screen is beautiful and in the adjoining living room I have used turquoise as an accent and would love to pring some of this color in the dining room. Turquoise rug? Turquoise on the shelving. Someone was correct in saying a rug may cover the registers. Back to the cowhide rug...maybe one in color!

Adrianne I don't think having a cowhide in two areas is an overkill. I have a black and white cowhide in the bedroom and brown one in the sitting room. Just to give you an idea? ;-)

I like the room! I wish I had that space! I do enjoy my hide rug in our dressing room. We have it next to a huge silver mirror. From restoration. I also like that the cow hides are irregularly shaped. So many squares in a row home. Also thinking of an overdye turquoise rug

If a rug will fit, an overdyed one would be beautiful.
Saw this on etsy, and think the shape (and colour !) suits the direction of your style nicely. If you are a DIYer, this is a style that you may be able to find on consignment locally.

I don't think the pair of mirrors are adding the glam or unexpected you need. They need to be painted high gloss black and hung in a vertical stack, from the baseboard up. Use the outlet there, which will now be behind them, to ad some tiny twinkling lights for more sparkle and drama. They will show off your chandy better than with the gap in between them as they are now.

I had hung them vertically and a friend of mine talked me out of it. I am so upset with myself . I saw this huge gold quatrefoil mirror and was thinking of putting it in my living room.. Now with everyone's help . I think it would have been great in the dining room. I am over this pair and am constantly moving mirrors. We have over 17 in the house. Studio 10001, I rally like the photo of the piece you posted.!

Add a silk fern on top of the black unit. The chairs are great fun and add a modern element to the room. I would continue the modern element with more modern artwork and modern frames. I would replace the mirrors with a modern piece of art and pick up a color fr the artwork for a silk runner on the table. Add some chunky candles on the table. I would introduce silver metal to go with the pewter drapes. I think you could improve the white pieces in the blank unit. Perhaps some shiny silver things and some colored pottery would work. Somehow, I see shades of purple with the grey. Good luck--elegant room

Ok. I love the Ghost Chairs but I would ditch the seat cushions and instead find a zebra striped rug to go under the table. This room has the feel of over the top sexy so be sure that you start to layer it on. If you stop and leave things as is, it will appear unfinished. So... Think Martyn Lawrence Bullard who does his rooms OVER THE TOP but you so want to lounge in them.
Why the two mirrors? I think you would benefit from one mirror with a big pow to it.
I would probably lose the corner etarge. The lineup of coffee pots screams old lady and not sophisticated lady. Maybe add a mirrored buffet table to give the room a little sheen and drop the height of the light fixture. Then begin to add in colors that pop. Red, orange, purple, tealy-sea blue a Ju-Ju feather headdress would work nicely in the space. You also need to figure out a way to add some additional seating, maybe in the form of a short bench in a luxe but understated fabric. It would also help to see the other entry points in to the room and what this room feeds on to. More pictures coming.

Great bones! If you choose not to have a rug I would consider painting the table white to create contrast. Although, it looks like a good quality piece.

Perhaps a more unique light fixture would create a statement. I like the idea of mirrors in a small space such as yours to reflect light and make the room appear larger. Have fun!

Adriane you said you have black and white cowhide rug elsewhere. Why don't you try to remove cushions from the ghost chairs and try that rug in your dining room as cindy suggested? The first 2 pictures are from houzz which I took as an inspiration when furnishing my own room. If you don't want cowhide there are some great B&W rugs around.

I love all the comments and am afraid of going with black and white because i think it will clash with the adjoining rooms. I will take and post photos of these. I agree with everything everyone has said , especially Christine. If I lose the corner piece, what else should I put there? The room is a challenge as it is so darn tiny and narrow. Philly row home. I said it was a challenge! The cowhide rug pictured below is upstairs in our dressing room. The artwork with the oversized frames on the wall opposite the shelving unit. The kitchen shown is alongside the dining area. The living room opens onto the dining room. I think the photos will give everyone an idea of my space , or lack thereof. Also I have been eyeing those African headdresses for years! I like the mirrored console. Where would I fit one??? Help!

I had the mirror in there for a long time and really thought it was big but too narrow. Thought I may have needed something wider and probably gold. The rug? The bf loves that rug and mirror in the room that the photo barely shows.. Thinking of a zebra patterned rug and removing the cushions? I need to get a new mirror, I am not sure ..the mirror you see in the dressing room is a giant one from restoration hardware

You mentioned that you already have done mirrors in the house 17 times, so why not take this opportunity to do something less expected? You have room for some beautiful wall art, a wall hung console,and a pair of lamps or candle sconces. In the corners, you have room for a wooden screen and small table for drinks, the aforementioned pedestals, and sculpture.

Skins under the dining room table make it difficult to maneuver chairs, and will collect debris from the table. Your overdyed idea is perfect; if one fits, I suggest pink, as the contrast will show off the table area better than blue. Save the turquoise for small amounts, elsewhere. I found one for you here:
http://westofhudson.com/
As to changing the table colour, if you liked that idea, I suggest a backpainted piece of glass in whatever shade you choose - NOT painting the wood. I like your table, as is.
I agree about removing the zebra cushions, so that your room can head 'uptown'.
Look for gold pieces and glass in accessories for the console, think overscaled where possible, and if budget allows, consider a wallpaper mural for the long wall.
If the room will not accept a carpet, look for new chairs with more visual mass and colour.
Painting out the baseboards will look more finished, as will adding molding to the ceiling.

Loved all your suggestions..there is a thick crown around the room . The photo I took really did not show this well. I was thinking about staying away from a carpet but I think It may be necessary to instill some warmth or pattern into the room. I liked the one your have shown here but I also liked one I
Saw on gilt.com. It had a reference to a zebra print. I have not figured out how to upload it here as I am computer illiterate. I will remove my cushions and I love the wallpaper suggestion. Can you suggest some? I have abstract art in the living room and would consider an oversized piece on that big blank wall. The biggest thing in the entire house, other than the finished basement
art would be a refreshing change with all the mirrors. Thank you.

As studio said, I also think grey rug will be fine if you go for bold colourful art and accessories. Otherwise zebra cowhide. I have 2 cowhides in my flat and find them extremely easy to care for. They have very short hair so no problem with collecting debris :-)

I think this is the one I was looking at online! I think in my effort to make the room look clean and streamlined, I made it look sparse And unfinished .. I like the above piece and am always challenged by this last space in our house! I may put one of the leaves in the table to make it an oval, then try to see if I can work a straight bench. The room is longer than it is wide. Not sure safai may be right!?. I guess this is the reason it is not finished and I posted it as a challenge. I appreciate all the advice. It is helping me process this space.

I know my style is totally different than yours, but I painted a stenciled "area rug" under my dining room table and am so happy with it! It brought color and design into the room and is so easy to take care of. You can look at Royal Design Studio stencils and use any pattern or colors that would be suitable for your room.

I like it a lot! So creative. I would have thought it was a rug . A very unexpected touch, adds whimsy to the room. I also need what you said..color and design. My space is so blocky. I like the light and style of your room ..that piece on the side looks like it was made for the space. This dining room is my last spot ..easily decorated the other spots. Horse was not exactly an impulse ..have been looking at oversized horses in art sine I saw a beauty in one of Ralph Lauren's houses in a magazine . Not even my style but love the beasts! I am hoping this will work...I like the unexpected and your rug is!

Honestly, I wasn't going to mention it, but that very reason is why I went for his option. My two dogs had peed on the area rug I had under the table and I couldn't see it on the rug, so didn't find out till I took up the rug to have the floors refinished. By then it was too late- Awful brown spots that couldn't be removed. I painted the stenciled carpet right over it, then put several coats of clear sealer over it. It wears really well.

I love the room. I think I have this strange attachment to all of these horse photos. Do you think there is a way to use the horse and not scream traditional? Nothing in this tiny house is traditional. Some of my things are mid century modern. Only art is abstract. I guess I am struggling as I want to use this beast in a modern setting and am not sure how to execute this. I take that back what I said about traditional. The kitchen looks a little craftsman. I love the above room you sent but yet I say I like modern? Can we really have it all?

Yes. It is not the subject, but the treatment of it that determines its fitness for a modern setting. I think the juxtaposition of it against modern furnishing ( and your table and chairs count) will keep it looking current. If there is any doubt in your mind, look for a bigger horse, or one that faces the camera. There is nothing traditional about an oversized or direct stare.

I love the room pictured and I thank you for holding my hand through this! I have one of those chairs in my dressing room. Love it! I do agree with you about the direct stare . I may keep looking at horses. I did not realize it until you mentioned it. Thanks. I will post my wallpapers when I get them

Wild horses of sable island. Great photos of the horses. On exhibit in soho. A print of one of those is really what I want!

Evolving. No wallpaper yet. We are snow covered and I am headed to Miami. I hope I can get some inspiration there
