Evolution of a Dining Room E-Design

Awhile ago, I designed a dining room for an out-of-area client via e-design. Due to various factors (including the fact that the homeowners diverted funds to purchase a vacation home!), the original design plan didn't get implemented right away. Needless to say, a few products went out of stock given the amount of time that passed between when the design plan was initially provided and when the homeowner was ready to make purchases. No problem. I got to work re-sourcing whatever was needed and provided a refreshed plan.

Here's a look at the updated e-design, along with some surface styling ideas for the dining table and buffet cabinet. It's been fun to see pieces arrive!

UPDATED DESIGN PLAN

The updated plan includes a new dining table, chairs, rug, bar cart and wall art option! (Note: Although this is an e-design, part of my design process includes physically visiting showrooms to view furnishings and/or decor, as well as pulling swatches to recommend fabric and wood finishes.)

STYLING EXAMPLES

Tablescape examples were also provided to help the homeowners decorate the surface areas to help bring the room to life. The styling options were intended to be mixed and matched, and for the client to extract ideas they liked from each board.

The client was drawn to elements in each board and purchased a few styling options to start the decorating. Which styling option do you prefer?!
