Embracing Neutrality and Elegance

The starting point for the makeover was to establish a neutral color scheme that exuded elegance. A lime wash paint was chosen for the walls, providing a subtle and moody backdrop for the room. The ceiling, painted in SW Urbane Bronze, added a touch of drama. However, the only cosmetic changes made were the addition of two sconces on the wall. The rest of the transformation was achieved through careful selection of lighting and decor.

From Before to After

To achieve priority number one – moving the chandelier to the center of the space – a creative solution was employed. A swag hook was installed, making it easy to swing the chandelier into position without the need for an electrician. The chosen chandelier was the Stiffel Hartley 35" Ring Chandelier in an Antique Gold finish. Its exclusive design, found only at Lamps Plus, perfectly complements the size and style of the dining room.

The Greta Brass Wall Sconces were the ideal choice to complete the lighting ensemble. With clean lines and a stunning antique gold finish, they effortlessly adapt to various design styles, ranging from traditional to transitional and even more modern aesthetics. The addition of sconces not only adds elegance through accent lighting, but also contributes to the overall visual appeal of the room.
