dining room delight {renovation house}

Welcome back to our home tour!

Today, we'll get up-close & personal with the dining room. Originally built in 1956, this room of the home was used as a formal living area until the renovation. Our designer raised the ceilings, knocked out a wall, stained the floors, and changed just about everything to transform the space into a glamorous yet practical dining room. Come take a look...

This stunning vintage Italian chandelier is sixty inches in diameter and really highlights the spacious feel of the room. The table is a favorite of our designer, Cathy. It's constructed of simple plywood and stays draped in different fabrics seasonally. Currently shown with a neutral linen. At seven feet round, it's perfect for both family dinners or large gatherings. 

Here you can see that the dining area opens up to the family room and breakfast room. The walls are a Venetian plaster (and we think the pictures don't do it justice, if we do say so ourselves!) The hardwoods are original to the home, but have been stained and sealed to update the look.

Houston artist Greg Budwine's "Falling Leaves" hang above matching iron and marble antique console tables on either side of the room. The artwork and tables are both for sale; if you think these are a must-have for your own home just shoot us an email. renovatecrp@gmail.com

A night-time view - we love the custom linen drapes, and the mirrors added above the windows. 10 foot ceilings really open up the space. 

Thanks for touring with us!
