Dining Room Dilemma!
stlacyJanuary 15, 2013
I want a dramatic, somewhat glam look with a dash of urban gypsy. I saw on Houzz.com the wallpaper that looks like cement and went wild for it! But it's very pricey and I recently renovated my entire condo. Would love your thoughts on my latest plan: paint walls under the soffit a cement color. I textured the wall with joint compound several years ago (you can't see it in the photos). Maybe I could shade some of the texturizing and make it look slightly cementish. Cover the long wall with artwork in fold frames (love the gray and gold). Then silver leaf the tabletop (paint base?). I would love to reupholster the chairs in something with lots of texture e.g. faux python or alligator - velvet? Colors I'm considering: persimmon, rust, bronzy something. Also would be interested in doing something fun with the underside of the soffit. I've been pushing furniture and artwork around just for effect so accessories are not carefully placed. Would love to hear your suggestions!!!
