Behind The Design: A New England Family & Dining Room

POSTED BY DECORIST EDITORIAL TEAM
MAY 9, 2017

PROJECT DETAILS

The Project: Transforming an outdated space into a casual but sophisticated family and dining room

The Clients: A young family with a toddler (and a cat!)

The Designer: Amanda Wegwart, Decorist Classic designer

The Budget: $10,000 furniture budget


"We spend 90 percent of our time in this room so it’s important that it’s functional, comfortable and looks great.”


CLIENT REQUESTS

  • The room should reflect our casual but still sophisticated style
  • We prefer a natural and neutral color palette but we're open to antique items and pops of color accents
  • All furniture, design and fabric choices need to be toddler- and cat-friendly
  • Lighting! There are only two small recessed lights in the entire space above the dining table so we’ll need additonal lighting to keep the space well lit at night

AMANDA'S DESIGN NOTES

  • Sleek black dome pendants above the dining table, table lamps and a classic floor lamp will ensure the space is bright at night
  • A soft and comfy sectional in a neutral color and with clean lines anchors the space well (the good news: slipcovers can be easily cleaned and replaced if necessary)
  • The bold striped area rug grounds the room and adds pop, while a mix of neutral and pastel-patterned pillows infuse that a subtle sophisticated eclectic aesthetic
  • The ornate and solid-wood coffee table is functional and adds a welcoming organic vibe to the room
