Elegant Dining Room
The following idea came to me from shopping at Sephora. I have seen plenty of girls post their room tour videos on social medias like YouTube and Pinterest. You can find Victoria's Secret inspired bedrooms, as well as Sephora inspired bedrooms.
I love the idea of the horizontal black and white striped-design you see in all of the Sephora stores. However, I have a slight issue with these colors. Their walls seem, to me, somewhat ... sterile. (I can just hear the gasps of shock coming from the design community!)
Now before I get ousted for condemning the use of pure black and white striped design, I want to offer my point of view.
Nothing says elegance in a room like an accent wall of horizontal stripes, matched up with hardwood flooring. Yet choosing the wrong color combinations can take your design from fab to drab, or in Sephora's case, to sterile.
Notice how the accent wall is striped with a muted grey/taupe, and a hint of white?
By adding just a touch of white, and keeping the taupe as your primary accent stripe, you instantly go from feeling like you're visiting the pharmacist, to feeling like you just stepped into an upscale 5th Ave. penthouse.
Some may feel like this choice of colors may be a bit too dark to bear. I want to point out to you, however, that the white on the ceiling, with the hint of white on the walls, and the blonde hardwood flooring, and your choice of light color curtains and area rug are enough to bounce off any light you have going in the room.
Take a look at the furnishings. The use of glass, gold, silver, and white are enough to bounced off any light coming to this room. With the right furnishings, and the right amount of lighting, this room should have an elegant warm glow that will make anyone feel like they have just stepped into their private dining room of a 5 star hotel.
