design plan: chinoiserie dining room 2 ways

sometimes even tiny tweaks in a room can yield big results.

here are two plans that i did for an e-design client that contain the same core elements:
*an existing traditional wood table
*matching chairs that will be painted 
*existing set of pagoda mirrors
*existing oil rubbed bronze chandelier that will be painted gold
*new end chairs 
*dark walls + new wainscoting + black ceiling tray

the big difference between the two plans is in the rug and accent fabrics. 

with this plan, an over dyed teal rug is paired with a chartreuse pagoda print and a geometric black/white fabric.

and this plan (which was the final look the homeowners decided on) has a more colorful rug, with fuchsia, eggplant, tangerine and mint. the new accent fabric picks up on the mint in the rug and adds another dose of geometric pattern.

interested in working together to create a more beautiful and functional space?

  1. Your client has a great taste for color, Autumn! The fuchsia rug is, indeed, much better than the first one. I'm sure they're on the process of renovating their place now. Will you be able to post the output once it's done? Thanks so much! :)
