Rooms To Love: Renewed Antiquity

Rooms To Love: Classic Dining Room
Image: Sheila Bridges

Mixing old and new pieces is part of the subtle charm in this classic dining room, and reflects the age and character of the homes’ older bones.  The tall ceilings, decorative molding around the fireplace, and the wide pine boards are classic architectural details from older Colonial Revival homes.  Combining the antique demilune console table with turned legs, and the reclaimed barn board dining table, enhance the timeworn appeal of the home.  To update the look, without breaking away from the classic style, introduce arm chairs with simple silhouettes and a more modern beaded chandelier. We love that this dining room can accommodate a small seating area in the corner – just big enough for a cozy place to sit after a delicious meal!  The subtle seafoam, natural stains, and pale blues and greens create an understated and easy-going atmosphere perfect for casual dining.

    Can you tell me what the color of the paint on the wall is in this picture by Sheila Bridges?

      Thank you Bonnie for visiting our blog! I’m not sure exactly what color is featured in that room, but the closest comparison I came up with is the Sherwin Williams 6484 Meander Blue! It is a beautiful blue/green tone that will create a calm and inviting environment.
