Sit-down meals with extended family or friends occur quite often with this busy family. The clients wanted a dining room that could feel formal and contemporary but at the same time they wanted easy care and maintenance. The parson’s chairs are upholstered in micro-fiber, the draperies are polyester with the weight, feel and look of silk. Cotton roman shades were installed to keep the intense sun out during the day. Mark wanted to bring an element of surprise so a soffit was constructed with the recessed ceiling draped in a chocolate brown and ice blue polyester fabric and highlighted by a contemporary crystal chandelier that was hand made in the Czech Republic. The two custom built sideboards are topped with onyx and were stained to match the dining table which can accommodate up to 12. The custom frameless beveled mirrors hold crystal wall sconces to add more light when needed. The window treatments are examples of the design style that Hermogeno Designs offers to their clients while fulfilling a client’s needs. The window treatments are clean and simple and very functional. The fabrication was also important. The drapery is lined in cotton canvas material rather than traditional lining material that help keep the sun out during the summer and retain the warmth in the winter.
There are so many gorgeous yellow flowers - they're a perfect way to brighten up a room. (In fact, right now, Trader Joe's has Irish daffodils for $1.50!) I love how this staid, traditional dining room is made cheerful by a simple vase of flowers.
