When I first met with my clients last year they were wanting to do away with the dark brown walls and outdated light fixtures. This space was from a previous home owner and did not reflect their style at all. We painted the entire downstairs and upstairs Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter. The only item that stayed in this space was the dining room table and the large arched mirror was moved to the living room.
We added wall sconces on either side of the mirror for more light and the sisal rug gave a great contrast to the dark wood table. The gray & cream striped fabric used on the custom side chairs was also used on a custom settee set under the stairs across from the dining room. The upholstered nailhead trim end chairs, mirror and console are from the local design center here in Houston. We used Currey & Company lighting throughout the house.
For the powder bath we kept the mirror and switched out the countertop for a beautiful carrara marble. We added a vessel sink and chrome fixtures.
But by far the greatest transformation of this space was the Schumacher wallpaper! Its a beautiful trellis pattern on a silver foil background.
