Using the design of the Inspiration room as a basic framework, the design team successfully transforms a plain dining room into an elegant dining oasis.
One need only take a look at the "before" image to gain a full appreciation of the dramatic makeover results.
- The transformation began by adding a cranapple tone to the walls ("Cranapple Red" from Pratt & Lambert) to the walls. A 1960’s style sideboard perfectly replaced the designer oak sideboard found in the inspiration room. A pattern framed mirror was placed above the sideboard to add dimension to the room. The sideboard was dressed with skylar style paper lanterns and a grass plant which added an organic feel to the room. A modern abstract reproduction print was placed in the room to simulate the look of the oil accented print from the inspiration room. A vibrant orchid situated on a wooden and wrought iron shelving unit was a mirror image of the cymbidium orchid and glass shelving unit from the inspiration room.
