Dramatic Dining Room
This dramatic space in a large home features beautifully faux-painted walls in a mossy green tone, with heavy Tuscan plaster effects. A pair contrasting art niches flanked an inset space designed for a buffet or console table. A wonderful chandelier and ceiling spots were available to accent art pieces. Staging the room required appropriate furnishings and table settings. An antique carved table and chairs upholstered in rich fabrics hint at grand dinner parties here. We chose not to place a large buffet in the room, opting instead for a console table with the drama of a colorful tapestry, echoes by a similar floral arrangement. The table setting, while simple, speaks of elegance.
