If there was one room in our new house that I wanted to go for a full over-the-top vibe in, it was the Dining Room! Since we had our breakfast nook already, which fit our entire family for meals, I had the luxury of making the dining room a destination-type room. I wanted it to make a statement, and have it feel like its own little world. I wasn’t aiming for “fancy” necessarily, but one of my favorite things is sitting in a dining room for meals that feels like it’s transporting you someplace. I’ve really been loving the abundance of 80s and 90s aesthetics that has been permeating pop culture lately. For our dining room, I thought it would be so fun to really tap into the spirit of the 80s and 90s.
For a super bold look, I knew I wanted to do a matching drape and wallpaper pattern. And for that, the only place to turn was obviously Kravet! I mentioned a lot about what I love about Kravet in my Formal Living Room Reveal, but for those of you who don’t know the brand, Kravet Inc. has led the design industry in quality, service, and creativity since 1918. They’re my go-to for sourcing wallcoverings, fabrics for draperies and upholstery, and super special trims. One of my favorite things about Kravet is that there is something for every single style.
Since this project was a lot bolder than the Formal Living Room project, I wanted to scour the Kravet site for some of my favorite, “edgier” designers. One of my all-time favorite designers is Kelly Wearstler because I love her bold and eclectic style that feels like the perfect mix of masculine and feminine. Kravet carries Kelly Wearstler’s line for Lee Jofa, and it felt like the perfect fit. I was especially drawn to the “Graffito” print because it comes in both paper and fabric– and has that fun and funky quality.
I decided to go with paper on the ceiling, and the matching fabric for the drapes. Then, Supreme Home Finishes helped me take the pattern to the next level by framing it out with a glossy, bold charcoal trim for the ceiling, baseboards, door and window frames. Once this was done, I knew I wanted to go a little deeper with texture. Fabricio of Supreme Home Finishes suggested that we do a lime wash, and I’m obsessed with how it came out. It’s so subtle but really helps make the pattern pop in this room. Adding trees, bold artwork, and a fun strip on the chair cushions really brought all the vibes together. I love how this room turned out, and we absolutely LOVE entertaining in this room. It feels like such an escape every single time!
When I set the table, I love really going for it…and this room called for something special and unique. I went into Zafferano in New York City to pick out some pieces. For those of you who don’t know Zafferano, it’s an Italian brand known for their cordless lamps. The lamps are totally fabulous and are perfect for entertaining, both indoors and outdoors. They also make the most insanely gorgeous glassware and tableware! I totally fell in love with this pink and green color scheme in this room. It is so perfect and feels playful but also elegant. I really just can’t get enough of this room. It speaks to a part of me that has been dying to come out.
I’ll put all the design sources below, but feel free to ask more individual questions if there’s something that is left unanswered!
