Last week, I mentioned that I was decorating a client’s dining room in blue grasscloth and I shared some gorgeous inspiration photos. Well, here’s the plan!
The grasscloth is by Seabrooke. It’s a gorgeous navy and the weave and slight color variations give it so much depth. The drapery fabric is Lacefield’s Mubai Indian Blue and it looks gorgeous against the grasscloth. We’ll also add these bamboo shades.
I’m custom framing a series of Audubon bird prints from Art.com across the long wall. I love the large scale and realism and their strange, graceful beauty creates a lot of drama. The colors really pop against the navy grasscloth.
The chandelier is the Soho from Shades of Light in lacquered brass, chosen for it’s simple elegance.
The lamp is also from Shades of Light and we’ll be placing it (or something similar, possibly vintage) on the buffet. My client has some chinoiserie pieces in other rooms and I’d like to carry a bit of that over into the dining room. Over the buffet, we’ll install the Rosamund mirror from Ballard Designs in brass.
The seagrass rug is also from Ballard. It’s a bargain, I think, at only $399 for a 9×12 and I love the texture it adds. Seagrass is naturally water resistant so it’s a great choice for dining rooms.
The client’s dark wood, slightly rustic dining table will stay, but we’ll probably choose new seating to lighten things up. These slipcovered chairs from Pottery Barn will lend a relaxed vibe to the room.
The wallpaper will be installed next week. Can’t wait to see the finished space!
