Before And After: Modern Elegant Dining Room


Looking back on the before photo even I can’t believe the transformation of this dining room. Our client was incredibly open to stepping outside the box of basic and adding elements of interest and individuality while maintaining an elegant approach to modernizing their dining room.


The first order of business was to lighten the room. We used Pratt & Lambert Feather Grey on the walls while the trims remained the same. We approached the ceiling with something a little more unexpected and dramatic… wallpaper! New drapery, wall sconces, chairs, lighting, area carpet and artwork all carefully selected to create a sophisticated and comfortable feel for entertaining guests. We were considerate of the existing dining table, sideboard and table lamps when choosing the new items to maintain a cohesive feel and understated elegance.


Looking for a dramatic change to a dreary area in your home? We’d love to help transform your space!
