If you haven’t been following along our tour through The Junior League of Boston’s Decorator Show House, you’ll want to start from the beginning! Click here to see our first post about Gerald Pomeroy’s stunning receiving room, then click here for writer and magazine editor, Beth Daigle’s take on the beautiful sunny Morning Room, designed by Theodore and Company. Finally, prepare to be wowed by Vani Sayeed’s red kitchen, covered by interior designer Kim Macumber.
Onward! Today I’d like to draw focus to The Grand Dining Room that lies in the path between the kitchen and the morning room. There are a lot of things to love about this room, (the horse art piece for one), but my favorite is the walls! The woven silk sky-blue wall treatment adds texture, light, and contrast to the existing mahogany. Yet again, we are seeing hints of gold detail come out in this room, and I am loving the Chinese accents, like the porcelain vase shown below.
I am not an interior designer, nor would I ever think of putting an art piece smack in the middle of a window, but to my surprise, it works! If you look closely, you can see the spherical balls reflecting the entire room over and over. The cozy sitting area, perfect for daytime tea, or evening cocktails, is made all the more inviting by pillows and many textures. Can’t you just imagine a modern Chinese tea party here?
And look, it leads you right into the kitchen! (kitchen photo here)
