Fall 2020 Glamorous Dining Room Reveal

You know the expression, “Some things are worth waiting for”?  I  am pretty sure this One Room Challenge glamorous dining room qualifies. My client’s custom table was installed this weekend and now I get to show you the BIG REVEAL. Add to that a modern crystal chandelier, wide plank flooring, and stunning mural, paint and moulding, and gorgeous touches because they make for very special rooms.

Note: Thanks to Cambria, Varaluz, LIFECORE flooring, Fine and Dandy CoMetrie moulding, Farrow and Ball Paint, Lamps Plus,  Cowhides International, Potomac Paint and Design Center,  Candace Heil, Ronnie Logan, Granite and Marble Express, for sponsoring this gorgeous room.  The opinions are 100% my own.

Before Glamorous Dining Room

Two months ago this dining room was anything but glamorous.  Don’t get me wrong, the room was fine, but did nothing to represent the personality of my client.  It was a bit boring and she is most definitely not!

After Glamorous Dining Room Makeover

Now, every time I step foot in her glamorous dining room I think, “Dang, it is sooooo gorgeous in here”.

What do you think?  Not boring, eh?   Rather the room is an example of contrasts that create drama in such an interesting way.

Now let me break down all of the details for you.

Custom Cambria + Stump Table

Going into this makeover we knew that we wanted an organic element as the most important show stopper of the room.  We landed on this design concept of a tree trunk with a marble alternative waterfall table, and I am sooooo glad that we did!

Cambria, Brittannica Gold, countertop, custom table

We opted to go with Cambria because of its BEAUTIFUL design, little to no maintenance and nonabsorbent properties.  We worked with Granite and Marble Express in Chantilly, VA to fabricate this spectacular Brittannica Gold table top.

For the supporting stump we worked with Joe Allen from the Shop in Amelia Courthouse, Virginia. He can ship world wide if you are trying to recreate this table.

This fabrication process was quite the exciting journey and education.  I will be writting a detailed description of  lessons learned on the table fabrication process tomorrow.  Definitely worth reading if you ever plan to create any custom piece….ever.

LIFEcore Floors

GOODBYE ivory carpet and HELLO timeless wide plank hardwood floors from LIFECORE flooring.  These are the exact same, Anton Fresh Aire, floors that I have in my Fall 2019 ORC living room.  I loved them so much I had to recommend them for my client’s home.

Not only are these floor drop dead gorgeous, LIFECORE Flooring Products, are HEALTHY!  They have zero-added formaldehyde and low VOC hardened finishes.   LIFECORE also boast the Indoor Air Advantage Gold and GREENGUARD Gold certifications due to their healthy construction. Plus, they smell like a freshly cut forest💃.

Varaluz Chandelier

I refer to this dining room as glamorous, but if you break down each element, it really is the chandelier that takes it to the next level.  This  Varalux Matrix  is described as a mash up of “70’s glam with a dash of rock-and-roll”. I mean, who doesn’t want that?  

Not only is is statement makingly beautiful, it also has 8 60 watt light bulbs that put off the perfect abount of light for this otherwise dark room.  At 48 inches wide it compliments the dining table perfectly.

Sconces and Picture Light

To add to the mood and styling we installed two Lamps Plus Sconces  Hinkley Bowery 32 1/2″ High Black Steel LED Wall Sconces and a 28 inch wide slim-line picture light  in week 3.

I personally think these Wall Sconces make the feminine paint color feel fresh and chic.  The sconces are bendy and adjusable which could be handy above a night stand.

The picture light is timeless and classic with a streamlined look.  It is a perfect compliment for a large piece of art.

Fine and Dandy Mural

In week 2 I installed this epic Fine and Dandy Imaginarium in Sepia.  I love how it adds instant soul to the room.  I think decorating with murals is fabulous because the mural functions as both wallpaper and art.  It makes designing a room one step easier and a million times prettier.

I added the mirror to layer in the drama and bounce around the reflection of that chandelier.

Glamorous Dining Room Paint

One of the more glamorous elements of this dining room is the sultry paint color, Sulking Room Pink by Farrow and Ball.  You may remember that the original plan was to go with Picture Gallery Red.  Once the mural came in we realized that the red would have worked ok, but the purple undertones would really made the room sing. Plus, my client feels very comfortable in this warmer red color family.  It matches her front door and the wood tones in her kitchen cabinets beautifully.

I have to admit that I was a little nervous to make the switch, but once we did I was in love.  This color ranges from gray to lavender to mauve- depending on the time of day and the corner of the room. I think the black elements  elevate the style in this space.  Farrow and Ball is my very favorite paint company.  For me it all comes down to the rich pigments and gorgeous sheens.

We picked up our paint from Potomac Paint and Design Center.  They always have friendly and helpful service with locations in Alexandria and Arlington, VA. Don’t have a local stockiest near you?  That’s ok, they ship.

Side note:  I will be using Picture Gallery Red in an upcoming room makeover.  Can’t wait to see how this plays out in my daughter’s room.  It’s an unexpected choice for a young girl’s room.

Glamorous Dining Room Moulding

If you have been following me for a while then you know that I am a HUGE fan of Metrie moulding.  I have installed it in almost every room in my home so it was an easy choice to dress-up the crown and floor boards already in the space. My very favorite piece of trim for picture moulding is the 1 1/8th Primed Finger Joint Pine Base Cap.  We also added new 6 1/4 in architraves above her doors and existing casings.

This go-round I tried a new Metrie product, their 1 in half round, to customize a series of Ikea cabinets.  Tutorial coming next week.

We had considered leaving the wood natural, but staining them darker helps the stump POP!  

Glamorous Dining Room Drapes

I sewed these drapes out of a wool blend boucle I bought from my local Fabric Place Basement and added this stunning trim from Stroheim.  The background of the Igot trim is the same as the drapes making it look almost embroidered directly onto the drapes.

Also, I love the play of the more masculine rectangular shapes (waterfall table, buffet, chandelier, Drapery trim) and circular/ organic shapes (chairs, sconces, tree stump, plates, benches) in this space.

Glamorous Dining Room Art/Frames

This was my first time using Frame it Easy frames, but it really was a cinch.  Without leaving my home I was able to pick out a custom frame and mat cut to my exact dimensions and it shipped right to my door.  I selected the non-glare option for both pieces of art.

Both this piece and the one above the stools are what I would refer to as inexpensive “filler” prints that I purchased at Society 6.  I sincerely do love both, but one will shortly be replaced by a personal photo for Christmas, and the other is there until we find the perfect custom piece for this space.  We have decided to save a potential  Rylie Caldwell Art piece for another room so that the movement doesn’t compete with the upcoming table.  Her art is so stunning on its own.

This unique piece was created by designer and artist Ronnie Logan. Her imaginave uses of intaglios is mind blowing. She combines them with gems, art, fabrics, jewels and more.  She is definitely one to follow on Instagram. Ronnie loves to do custom pieces and she ships.

Glamorous Dining Room Details

I am convinced that Candace Heil, a DC based artist, can build or make almost anything!  You may know her from my custom patio table, but she has also crafted this organically shaped concrete planter, the black statue, and unique candle holders in this space.  She ships you guys!  She is definitely worth following on Instagram.

To add texture and provide a little more masculine balance to the dining room we opted for a champaign colored rug from Cowhides International.  In addition to great prices, I love that I was able to see exact images of every single rug I was considering.  It scares me to buy from a big box store and not know what hide I will get.  You can use coupon code “Jeweled15” for an additional 15% off at checkout.
