Our clients wished for a complete room and furnishings update, with the baker's rack as the only item that had to remain in the space. They wanted a formal space for entertaining that was comfortable enough for everyday use.
We added crema marfil tiles to the fireplace surround. We repainted the walls and added a contrasting band of color to the ceiling to break up the wide, flat expanse of the original white ceiling. Long drapery panels add vertical drama to the space. The fact that they are hung much higher than the window is concealed by a mock roman shade. Layers of accessories and art add to the casual elegance of the room.

Do you know the width of the wall behind the fireplace? »
The walls are Benjamin Moore HC-38 Decatur Buff. The dark accent band on the ceiling is Benjamin Moore 1062 Baked Cumin. The center of the ceiling is Benjamin Moore 1044 LIghthouse Landing. The white trim is a custom match to the client's existing trim work throughout the house.
