In this fabulous dining room, we mixed the traditional with contemporary design. Yes you can mix it up. We chose to anchor the room with a color pallette of blue white and orange. The rug is a chain link design with a background of orange with blue as the chain link. We duplicated the design onto the ceiling. We chose to drape the table in a custom tablecloth in an overscaled floral pattern in navy and white. We drew from the navy and painted the walls using it. The table cloth fabric was also used as the drapery fabric. The table is set using a blue and white color pallete as well sprinkled with the orange from the rug. We chose to mix up the plating using a white dinner plate, blue ikat patterned salad plate and a sorbet glass to add height. The napkin is an orange and white egyptian pattern. Every table should have a center piece so we chose a pair of white lacquered urns which we filled with a white orchid ball. The center of the table has a white porcelian horse to provide interest. Over the dining table, we chose this beautiful orchid chandelier from Austrialia. It is made of mylar and is spectaclur. A true focal point! At the opposite end of the room, we placed a pair of silver chests with a pair of bulbous lamps in white. Centered over the top of these chests is a flamed mirror in chrome. You don't have to have a single long chest as a console, a pair works just as well and is also unexpected. For the artwork we chose a series of three long painting which we selected not only because of their beauty but for their shape. One is an original from an artist that we admire, the other two are images we found captivating and placed on lucite. Enjoy!
