Nights at the Round Table
Since this room is the first thing you see when you enter the home, it needed to be striking and project a gracious mood that was both stylish and comfortable and just a tad unexpected. So, NOT a room of brown furniture. The table had to be the gathering place for the family and so the choice of a large round trestle table in a light finish made the most sense. Adding tailored chairs with dressmaker details gave a little fashion flare to the room. Brass and metal became the other element that unified the design. A graphic brown and white carpet brought the space together nicely.
The large cream matte around the small images of the art is as important as the image itself as it provides contrast with the dark walls and a clean, contemporary feel. I liked the mix of a traditional brass framed mirror with the more contemporary art. Other art not seen in the pictures are colorful abstracts.
