Coral + Blue Dining Room in Ada: #adanewtrad

Hello there!  I know, this week has been design boards a plenty.  Just remember that this means more before and after posts to come later. ;-)  Earlier this week I shared our plans for their "Girly Loft" space, fit for two daughters.  Today I'm sharing our plans for their dining room.  

We're starting here.  This is the wall opposite their bay window with a beautiful view of their backyard with a pond.  My clients are professionals and enjoy entertaining in their custom home, but it just needs a little finishing.  They are ready to make the space their own, and that's where I come in.  I love helping my clients hone in on their personal style and making it beautiful!

This wall will house a buffet, sconces, and art.  They really need the extra storage and the right piece of furniture will add some weight to the room and dress it up a bit.  The reality is that we're turning their eat-in kitchen into a dining room.  The buffet will help with that.

We need a larger table, new light fixture and fabric to soften the windows and add a little pretty.

I chose this fabric for the roman shades, from Tonic Living.

Because the whole room was based on this painting by Christina Baker...
Sadly, it's already sold, so we're working with Christina on a commissioned piece.  Beyond excited about working with her.  Can't wait!

We're doing the Louis XVI Square Back chairs around the table, with two round back chairs flanking the buffet.  The gray fabric is indoor/outdoor material for durability, and then I'd like to use this geometric print on the backs of the chairs.

Here are some examples of dining rooms done well with contrasting fabrics on the backs of the chairs.

My clients have traveled to all over the world visiting restaurants they love.  They've brought home menus from each of these restaurants, and that will make our symmetrical wall behind the dining table.
I love making a room personal and functional along with the pretty.

What do you think?  Is this a dining room you could love?
Whether you're near or far, I would love to work with you to create a home you love.  Email me at abbyminteriors@gmail.com for more information on my local & e-design services.


  1. Now THAT is a beautiful scheme! Can't wait to see it finished!!!

  2. Yes, it's a dining room I could love! The color choices are very fresh. I think coral should be the new red for dining rooms. And framing favorite menus is a clever idea. They will be a nice conversation starter.
    Once again, another beautiful room.

  3. Love all the fabrics :-) and the plan will definitely take that space into dining room status!
