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?
