House structure ideas: Bringing daring color and wallpaper to a eating space

Kim Macumber’s clientele, a younger couple with two minor boys, needed a dining home with drama. Not the least complicated feat for a nondescript suburban household in Southborough. “We utilized wallpaper in the course of the residence to produce persona where by there was not any,” the designer states. “It cocoons the dining room fantastically and adds a good deal of color, which they really like.” The energetic wallpaper also resolved an additional tricky request: that she incorporate a mid-century present day hutch that the wife had inherited from her grandfather. “The wallpaper provides harmony so the hutch doesn’t burden the space,” Macumber suggests.

1 Cane-back again chairs are not extravagant but look stunning close to the couple’s table. “The caning adds a purely natural aspect that knocks all that brass and gloss again down,” Macumber claims.

2 The embroidered vine of the Robert Allen material mimics the circulation of the wallpaper, albeit in a a great deal less complicated pattern and palette. Samuel & Sons grosgrain ribbon adds definition to each and every edge. “The drapes are so gentle and ethereal that they needed some visual fat,” Macumber states.

3 Macumber chose the Currey & Business chandelier for its blend of black and gold. “I appreciate the way the arms increase widely, trying to keep it really open, but then stop with chunks of brass.”

4 The couple’s textural brass mirror reinforces the wallpaper’s scenic stylized landscape and echoes the chandelier with out getting a excellent match. “A big mirror would have reflected the storage piece across the room,” Macumber suggests. “This just provides a very little snapshot of it.”

5 The brass Caracole console with antique glass major delivers surface room and bounces mild about the room. “It is effective nicely with the large-gloss finish of the storage piece opposite it,” Macumber claims.

6 The deep teal wainscoting, which experienced been painted dim pink, ties to the teal chairs at the close by kitchen desk. The wallpaper is Thibaut Daintree.
