Dine with drama. This space was also designed by Trevor Ciona and Curtis Elmy. "The walls in the house were mostly white, and this wall needed some drama," they say.
The client loves everything black and white, so an easy solution was at hand. "This trellis pattern from Kelly Wearstler has a gloss-black overlay, which provides some depth without being too busy."
Entertain in style. These homeowners had already purchased their dining room table, chairs and buffet before they hired Peggy Scinta of P. Scinta Designs. "The wife loves the color blue and had the room painted a very deep color that made it seem dark and lifeless," she says.
"The goal was to create a glamorous and sophisticated space that would be perfect for entertaining the physician husband’s colleagues. The furniture, a large round table and buffet with mirrored front, was a great start. The wallpaper — silvery blue with a large-scale gold/silver metallic ogee print — became the inspiration for the room. We then selected a small-scale gold damask for the custom drapery and added a soft blue to the ceiling. The room went from ho-hum and flat to soft and shimmery."
She adds, "We use wallpaper frequently in our projects, as it is so in vogue right now and the possibilities are endless!"

Go garden green. The inspiration for this dining room was a garden that's framed by the room's windows. "The clients wanted the majority of the house interiors to reflect the cool blues and greens found on property," says designer Elizabeth Gordon. "The grounds were renovated as well, and I wanted many of the rooms to feel like an extension of the garden spaces surrounding the house."
