Dining Rooms and Playrooms

One Room for Mom, One Room for Baby

This client wanted a better, but budget friendly, solution to her two empty front rooms. In our walkthrough, we decided that we could achieve a beautiful Dining Room and Kitchen/Adult room adjacent playroom.

Before

We kept this gorgeous china cabinet right in that spot and used it as the inspiration for turning the front room into the Dining Room.

After

The color choices for the Dining Room were taken from that painting in the distance. That piece was one of the few decor elements this client had loved and added to the space before we got started.

For privacy, this client was keeping her front blinds closed all the time, which worked great for privacy, but killed all natural light trying to brighten this space. So we added some simple window treatments – the textured linen sheers allow a ton of light to flood in but keeps the same privacy as the blinds. We anchored the far sides with thick velvet drapes, but limited them to ensure an airy, bright environment.

This former Dining Room is the perfect location for Mom to keep an eye on the little one. With bins for easy toy cleanup, shelves for all the books, a squashy chair for reading, a tent for hiding, and a table with bins filled with legos – this little one can entertain and clean up herself!

We added fun curtains to this room that had a similar design vibe to the window treatments in the Dining Room – side tassels!

Formal Dining Room Update:

A simple dining room makeover with no major purchases (just one lamp and some decorative fillers for the centerpiece bowl). We utilized the hidden crystal collection, the hibernating good china, and decorations pulled out from cupboards and cabinets to majorly update this formal dining room. Now these special pieces can be viewed daily!

After:

The wall this buffet table was originally located was actually in a walkway, making it something you had to walk around. By moving it to this wall – we not only eliminated a blockade, but we increased the depth of the room and added visual interest to this wall and pulling focus to these gorgeous prints.

After:

Shifting the large floral display to the side helped break up wood against wood tone while also lightenting the table and allowing focus to be on the room instead of the centerpiece.

After:

The crystal and china highlighted here was all tucked away in cabinets – now these super special family treasures are enjoyed on a daily basis.

Before:

This lamp and floral arrangement were too high for this area. The lamp was re-used within the room on the buffet table and a new lamp was purchased that was the right size.

After:

This cabinet was also re-worked as part of the full Dining Room makeover. We chose to only showcase white and black china in the cabinet to remain true to the color scheme and to keep it cohesive.
