Architectural details add elegance and sophistication to the NJ Dining Room

Adding wood moldings three quarters of the way up the walls is the beginning of the elegant look in this dining room. French doors replaced a narrow, single door and opens the way to present this beautiful dining room. A chrystal chandelier illuminates the beautiful woods of the dining room furniture. The table was purchased as new and the six chairs are three sets of different antiques chairs which were refinished and re-upholstered. The window treatments were custom made from a historic patterned toile named, "Mt.Vernon"

Great dining. Love the look and the wall treatments - How did you tie this color combination to the adjoining room as it appears this room flows into another. Thanks for posting this beautiful room.

This view is looking into the dining room from the kitchen. To the left and rear is the front of the house and you are looking at the foyer. Neutrals always work! The fabric is a Brunschwig & Fils Historic print called Mount Vernon, it is a toile which is a fabric that is printed to depict elements of everyday life. Its classis and will always work. mw

Hi all, I am hoping to address a couple of questions from the above discussion. The ceiling color is BM Linen white which is one of the standard white colors with Benny Moore. It is classic and lends itself to having a pinkish hue as opposed to navajo white which leans more towards yellow/orange hues. The carpet is pastel shades of greens, creams and rusts. It is a hand knotted carpet made of wool and silk. With all better quality hand knotted carpets the tighter the knots meaning the more knots per square inch, the tighter the weave. Regarding the window treatments. All of my window treatments are custom made. This fabric is a toile which is a print depicting elements of everyday life. I purchased this fabric through my company from a company called Brunschwig & Fil now owned by the Kravet company. It is an historic toile called "Mount Vernon" and shows scenes of George Washington and Mt. Vernon/ Trims make any custom window treatment and these trims are no exception. Hardware is hand painted to match with all other colors in the room. All designs, materials and finishes were purchased custom through Interiors By Design, LLC. I hope this information lends itself to viewing this photo with a sharper eye! good luck all. mw

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Tasteful Ideas for Traditional Dining Room Floors
Oriental rugs are a classic choice for a traditional dining room. This rug is hand knotted with wool and cotton fibers, making it a one-of-a kind addition to this home. Be careful to choose the right size: Your rug should be large enough that when you push every chair back from the table, all the legs stay on the rug.
