A little add on to the last post...being it is the same house and all! We also completed the dining room in the Arts and Crafts house where we redid the living room and made the cocktail table with the 19th century Turkish platter. Below is the finished design. My client already had the table and chairs, chandelier, and corner buffet. We added window treatments and a focal point to the table. We also added small turquoise glass tealights from Pier 1 on the plate rail for ambience during dinner parties.
Isn't it warm and welcoming? We made absolutely stunning table runners from a Cowtan & Tout embroidered fabric called Castello in Celadon/Toffee.
Close up of the stunning Cowtan & Tout fabric. The fabric was not cheap, but the colors and design could not have been more perfect. We both knew it had to be!
My client wanted a centerpiece that she could keep on the table during entertaining, would not block dinner guests from seeing each other, but would also look good for an everyday table centerpiece. (Sorry didn't light the candles as they were brand new! Thought I'd save that for her!) The Chinese antique wood tray is from Zachary, and the mosaic/crackle glass hurricanes are from Pier 1.
Beautiful silk draperies using Pollack's Silk Route in Teak.
Fabricut's Quatrefoil trim adorns three sides of the drapery. Sorry for the blurry pic. The trim has a tad of blue in it to tie in with the table runners.
It makes for a very lovely dining experience!! Don't you think? I'm getting hungry already!
