Grey Dining Room with a Pop Purple
There’s nothing we don’t like about this grey dining room project. From the coffered ceiling to the gorgeous table base, this room screams style and class.
When we entered this space, this was an empty room, but the grey color palette had been set. Our client had recent removed the wall between the dining room and kitchen to create and open concept, but needed help creating a defined dining space in the new open concept.
We achieved that delineation by anchoring the room with an area rug and light fixture. The drapery panels provide ceiling height, but also because they treat the dining room window differently than the kitchen windows help to mark the dining room separate from the rest of the house.
While our client’s home featured a beautiful grey and white palette, which was carried into this grey dining room, she wanted help introducing a bit of color. The dining room boasts a subtle pop of purple that was inspired by the piece of abstract art hanging over the buffet. The purple is picked up again in the welt on the chairs, the lamps, subtly in the area rug and then again in all of the accessories where we also introduced teal that is carried over from the living room.
We kept the dining table simple with only a small vase in the center as not to distract from the beautiful finish of the table and the chandelier above. The place setting are simple for the same reason.
The buffet is dressed with a few small accessories, but the focal point is the art and lamps. This vignette provides a lot of color in this otherwise grey dining room.
