pulling together a cohesive look for a new build can be a bit of a process. I met Kathryn today, who is working with Tara to transform a dining table and chairs for the new space. When I asked Kathryn what the overall look she wanted to achieve was she answered with a mix of hollywood glam, kelly wearstler, mary macdonald.. but it needs to be practical for a young family and cost effective. Here’s the inspiration I put together for Kathryn to narrow down her look-
The chairs in this next photo are similar to Kathryn’s ( shown )..and I love them in this grey. The seats..how about a rich hued velvet. It would add an unexpected touch of glam-
( This color is just off the top of my head, in the morning I’ll have a good look at my BM colors and see if there is an even better fit! )
Something like this will play gorgeously off the white kitchen, ginger island and dark floors. I love this color and this color from Lauren Lane Decors new Annie Sloan collection. Wouldn’t the paler grey look incredible with a hint of gold around the edges?!
So I’ll run all these thoughts past Kathryn and we’ll carry on from here..either with more details or back to the drawing board. All good design has to start somewhere!
