Silk was my fabric of choice when I first began looking at options for this dining room window treatment. The issue was going to be finding the right icy blue-gray to complement the different shades of both colors found in this room.
Fortunately, I found the perfect fabric. A smooth, icy blue, silk called Patiala that provides just the right balance between blue and gray.
You might think this color scheme is just for the fall holidays but in Cheryl’s home that’s not the case. This beautiful combination of gray, ivory & orange is the color scheme for the main living area, dining room and kitchen in this new home.
The walls are Worldly Gray by Sherwin WIlliams and the dining room window treatments are made from a damask like pattern called Dreamer in Gray from Interior Fabrics.
My friend Jan has one of the warmest, most inviting homes I’ve been in. Several years ago she had these cotton sheer panels made for her living room which include a cord trim along the upper edge that forms large loops from which the window treatment hangs.
Know what the key ingredient was for updating this Fall centerpiece?
Spray paint! Specifically several different shades of metallic spray paint.
My friend Jan has a large Fall centerpiece that I have admired for several years. This year I went to her home and it was completely different. Gone were the oranges, reds & yellow golds and in their place was this shimmering neutral beauty.
In fact, that wasn’t the only thing that was different.
My SIL Gina’s entire home is filled with eclectic details and her dining room is no exception. But here you will find plenty of shabby chic details as well. Literally. There are several elements you may recognize from the Rachel Ashwell’s Shabby Chic collection.
Gina’s dining room sits directly across the entry hall from the Parlor.
