Coastal Farmhouse Dining Room

my workIsabel MeloComment

One of my clients recently purchased an old farmhouse near the water in Quogue, on the south shore of Long Island, and is doing a complete renovation. Their taste is eclectic—a combination of coastal design with traditional flair.

Pictured here is the dining room that I designed for them. The space has 10-feet coffered ceilings with wainscoting panels on the walls and beautiful wood moldings painted with Benjamin Moore's decorators white paint. The rich, dark indigo walls are a custom color mix.

The focal point of the space is the chandelier. Layers of hand-forged wrought iron circles are finished in a complex annatto antique silver and attached at varying intervals. The chandelier achieves a breathtaking quality in both the form and finishing of its frame. On the wall we hang two tree wall sculptures crafted of steel with a polished nickel finish. The window treatments are 94-inch box pleated panels in a linen trend fabric with a contemporary pattern. They hang from a 8-feet long and 2-inch diameter driftwood rod with 6-inch finials. The massive driftwood table and side board are from Ethan Allen. 

This was a fun project. I think it worked out beautifully! What do you think?
