Love the light fixture. Where can I purchase it? - Love the not so "hotel wedding ballroom" disco-ball look of this light fixture against the traditional dining room. Great mix. I must have that fixture. Gorgeous!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Book Tour: Katie Ridder Rooms
Dining rooms. This Arkansas dining room is a great example of several techniques that Ridder commonly uses in dining rooms: strong colors, two-toned chairs, a unique light fixture, and a little bit of sparkle. Antique Swedish bird prints arranged around a pair of mid-century Italian sconces break up the apple-green wall.Today, most people decorate their dining rooms with evening meals and special occasions in mind. However, Ridder insists on keeping these rooms alive during daylight hours too. Her dining rooms burst with bold colors — from the paint, to the textiles, to the wallpaper. While many dining rooms become an overwhelming monochromatic mess of brown wood, Ridder limits her dining rooms to one major piece of brown wood — usually the dining table.
Becky Harris added this to Give Your House Some Natural Curiosities
Katie Ridder used antique Swedish bird prints against this bright green dining room wall.More about Katie Ridder Rooms
Here is a great use of color that is bold without being over the top. The bright yet soothing green on the walls is a beautiful choice. It is almost a neutral, but interesting enough to not be boring. This color goes with anything and everything while giving your space a punch.
Put a bird on the wall. These vintage nature renderings have enduring charm.See more natural curiosities in décor
Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist added this to Mood Makers: Make Your Home Inspiring
Using bold paint colors and unexpected color combinations can embolden you to take risks and step out of your decorating comfort zone. Think of the exhilarating conversation that must take place in this dining room. As my mother always said, there are no decorating police, so don't handcuff yourself by making the same color and decor choices as your neighbors.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Test-Drive a Touch of Neon
Give neutral upholstery a dose of neon in your piping. This is definitely a more permanent application, but the color feels classic in such a small quantity.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Chartreuse
Chartreuse on a wall in a very traditional dining room. It's not outrageous, but it certainly isn't stuffy, either. And see how beautiful it looks with the blues and purples here?
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Plum
Yet more plum with chartreuse, blues and pinks. Be still, my heart.
Elements of Style added this to Bold Decorating: Be a Color Block Connoisseur
Analogous color blocking. Using colors that are next to each other (analogous) on the color wheel produces a smooth and soothing interior scheme. This green wall harmonizes perfectly with the blue sideboard and purple upholstery. Tip: Pick one color as the primary color and use two others for elements that pop.
Sarah Burke Design added this to 7 Ways to Play With Symmetry for a Dynamic Design
3. Interrupt symmetry to provoke. It's easy to spot the symmetry in this dining room, because the middle of the dining table serves as the centerline for the furniture layout. The chairs and china around and on the table are the same; the purple hyacinth bouquets in vases are equidistant from the table's centerline; the white birds sit symmetrically on the buffet; the wall sconces sit at equal points from the middle of the chandelier. But the photo layout on the wall is where we see this pattern of symmetry interrupted — the frames and mats of the outermost bird artworks are different sizes, adding a fun twist.
Create an instant art collection. Color plates from inexpensive vintage books are a great way to have an instant collection. Try a book with bird, shell or botanical illustrations, or a vintage atlas. One great source for stunning images all gathered in one book is The Cabinet of Natural Curiosities. Shop around — I scored a rerelease a few years ago for $19, and I noticed a German version on Amazon today for just under $26.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Collective Wisdom: Display Ideas for Collections of All Kinds
Bird prints are a popular collectible. They bring the outdoors in; they offer charm and color; and you can indulge in them without investing megabucks. This lively green wall is the consummate backdrop for them, while the similar framing gives them a unified look.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Fill a Blank Wall on a Beer Budget
And then there are bird prints. Antique, new or pulled from the pages of a book (just imagine finding a volume full of Audubon illustrations in a thrift store) and framed in simple black, they are absolutely stunning. Using a sizzling green wall paint as the backdrop doesn’t hurt a bit, either.
