Just a quickie post to show y’all three more shots from the Bronxville Dining Room.

Bronxville Dining Room

Ahhh… remember the before shot? I read what I wrote 13 months ago… about the Calacatta Gold marble and the dark hearth and that’s exactly what we did. Looks like it was always there! The chairs are from Aidan Gray and reupholstered in the iconic Veneto pattern from Quadrille. The Chinoiserie vases are from Bungalow5. The wall paper is from Thibaut. Privacy isn’t an issue and with windows this gorgeous… no treatment is necessary. Likewise, I decided to forgo an area rug because I felt it made the traditional design, fresher.

Bronxville Dining Room


The table was custom-made from Englishman’s Furniture. The cabinet also made by them, was custom-designed by me.

Here is the original sketch.

The sideboard is also from Englishman’s Furniture. The pottery is from various sources. Lamps from Currey and Co. (aren’t they just the coolest buffet lamps you’ve ever seen?) and the mirror is from Horchow. Please note: In the before photo… my little head was poking up in its entirety smack dab in the middle of the bouquet. Yeah… I took it out in Gimp.

    I adore this dining room. It is absolutely perfect. I used the same fabric I found for a fraction of the normal price in turquoise for a bedroom chair. Please tell me what the wallpaper is. I am sure it is out of my reach but I would love to use it in a small entry.

      Hi Karen,

      That paper is from Thibaut. I believe it comes in a Euro sized-roll, so please consult with your paper hanger about how much you would need.

      Thibaut is a trade only source, but if you google it, I’m sure that all of the online vultures, I mean online vendors ;] will pop up. ReplyCancel
