Dining Room and Nook
The dining room is part of an updated 80's contemporary mountain home in Vermont. This client favors a white palette for her walls and ceilings as well as light color floors. This sets up the furnishings, art, and accessories like the foreground in a painting.
In the dining room I incorporated the original table they purchased. I found light airy ebonized oak chairs made in France. I covered the seats with charcoal vinyl for easy care. Though minimal looking, the seating is very comfortable.
The sideboard you can see pictured here is an important piece I commissioned from a Vermont women. it functions to hold items that dress the dining table. The chandelier over the table was handcrafted by a Rhode Island artist.
I assembled a casual, morning breakfast - snack area next to the dining area. There is an updated cabinet seperating the nook from the dining room. Originally it was covered with white melamine. Instead of replacing it, I commissioned a local Vermont artist to paint the existing cabinet. In addition, I replaced the solid doors with sandblasted glass to complement the overall look and feel.
This was part of a home renovation that included a Living Room with the same white background palette
