Take this room- send me pics!

Thursday, May 14, 2009 | Category: Design Inspiration, Dining Rooms

So, I was looking through some old files I had on my computer of rooms I had put together a few years ago when I had just started my business. They weren’t for anyone in particular. I was just anxious to start creating beautiful spaces, and I guess I must have been a little bored. Two kids and two businesses later, I can’t even remember what “bored” feels like.

Anyway, this was one of my favorite room designs that I came across. It is for a dining room concept. So take it, it’s yours! Put it to good use and if anyone actually does it, just send me a picture please!


Oh how I do love YELLOW! Any bold graphic wallpaper will work in this room!

Dining Chairs:

These weren’t in my original design, but a client sent me this photo the other day of two chairs she found in Soho at Penine Hart Antiques but they had been sold so she wanted me to reproduce them. It was love at first sight for me! I told her that even if she doesn’t order them I am going to make them for myself!


I love a good zebra print rug! Nothing like a nice bold graphic pattern to make a statement in a room! The Rug Company also make a gorgeous uber-expensive zebra print by Diane Von Furstenberg. (Why do all designers have such cool names except me…Hilary Mary White…BORING! And if I take my husband’s last name it will be Hilary Mary Mayer! Oh, hell no! But I still love you sweetie, just not your boring last name!) xoxo

Moooooooooooooi Chandelier:

Available at Unica Home, but there is a cheaper knock off sold at Modani in Miami, but be careful with Modani, two of my client’s complained about their customer service. Apparently they are a little snooty (DON’T BE SNOOTY! WE HATE SNOOTY!) …but their furniture is so cool and their prices are great too!

Dining Table by Oly Studio

I’m a sucker for a claw foot and a good lacquer!

Lamps by Barbara Cosgrove:

I saw these first a few years ago at the ICFF in NY. I’m sure they aren’t cheap, but they are really a showstopper! Very Kelly! (Oh, you know who I mean!)

Buffet by Vanguard Furniture:

They are really starting to get trendy with their pieces! Of course, you can’t go wrong with black and white!

Then I would accessorize with a funky mirror over the buffet. Maybe a starburst ( I know, they are so overdone, but I love them anyway!) or something ornate. I’m not sure what color drapes I’d do…any suggestions???

I love those bold wallpaper prints and the color of the first one as well.
