Luminescent – Artist Retreat, part 3

Welcome back to the Artist’s Retreat. Today in part 3 we have a few gorgeous images of this glamorous, modern meets Asian-inspired dining room. A rich wall color plays the perfect supporting role for blending different wood tones in the furniture pieces, and sets the stage for perhaps my favorite chandelier in the whole wide world. I know white rooms are all the rage right now, but sometimes when you’re throwing a fabulous dinner party, you want to create a more intimate setting to allow the conversation and spirits to flow. A deeper, more saturated wall color will do the trick. This wall color was selected to bring the blue tones from the living room into this side of the house. With a bit more sheen to the finish than your basic eggshell, the light reflects more off the walls. We added a lighter rug on the floor to compliment the lovely moody blue on the walls.

One element that is often overlooked in design is lighting – especially different levels of lighting. This Johnathan Adler Meurice Rectangle Chandelier was chosen as a perfect compliment to the dining chairs, adding drama and multiple levels of light to finish off the space. The brass details have a bamboo vibe that tie in with the other Asian-inspired pieces in the room.

Bold, abstract art work, and luminescent grey velvet curtains frame the room, creating the perfect backdrop for the seating area to shine. Add a non-traditional styling moment with this floral arrangement, and we have a great space for a sit-down meal.

PS. Did you notice the vintage banjo in the corner?  This is an artist retreat after all, and you never know when the fun and funky couple who live here, along with a few of their friends, will break into an impromptu jam session!
