This gorgeous dining space was designed by Paul Corrie, who is also the homeowner. He beautifully transformed this row home he shares with his partner, Steve Ewens. This home and dining space has a soothing, neutral color palette, yet stays very chic and stylish. In this space, the side chairs have a rustic finish, which works well against the formal, crystal chandelier. The dramatic, oversized mirror has a more casual appearance when it is leaned up against the wall. The light colored walls work well with the dark stained floors and dining table. The room appears formal with the detailed crown molding and nailhead arm chairs, yet also casual with the informal table setting of fresh picked hydrangeas and bowl of fruit. To me, this room works! It has the perfect blend of rustic elegance, traditonal with modern and chic with casual. To see the entire remodel with all of the before and afters, go here.

Happy Friday! I'm back with the series Why This Works... where I find a designed space and describe why (I think) it's perfection. This week, the room of choice is a serene, chic dining space. The slightly monochromatic color scheme works well with the abundance of texture in the space. Enjoy!
