Rustic Glam Dining Room Update

Hello, hello!  How was your weekend?  I enjoyed a full day of relaxation yesterday while it poured rain outside.  It was nice to just lounge and recharge.  We need those days every once in a while, don't you think?

Today I thought I'd share a few updates on my rustic glam dining room project.  If you want to see the beginning, feel free to catch yourself up here.  My client and her husband have a love of elegance and classicism, and wanted to create an inviting dining room to host guests in their home.  However, they felt their current dining room was lacking a bit of color:

This was the original design board I created for my client.  I felt darkening the walls would give the room a little definition.  I also suggested adding a sideboard lined with lamps and an abstract artwork above to add in a little color and interest:

I recommended Black Fox by Sherwin Williams for the walls, a few double gourd lamps from Robert Abbey, a Bliss Studio mirrored buffet, a Surya flatweave rug, and a soft abstract artwork.  And... here's a little progress!  We laid the rug and moved the buffet in along with the table lamps:

And then the artwork and a few accessories joined the party...

Even these small changes have made quite an impact! Next, we are adding silk dupioni drapery and a few boxwood topiaries to line the table.  I promise to provide better photographs when we have completed the room!  ;)

I hope you like! Have a wonderful Monday!!  Today I am also guest posting on Laura Dro Designs... pop over and check out the post!
