I am giving you a peek at my previous home and my affection for interior design. In this room, I have created a bold graphic area at one end of the Great Room and a subtle dining space at the other. The room is united with a wall of white linen panels. I chose to contrast dark furniture with the light wood of the floor. The focal point becomes this red in the painting while the black and white sing and dance together.
What you see: Ethan Allen Emerson side chairs and Lewis ottomans, in white leather. The luxe depth sofa is Restoration Hardware in addition to the white linen panels. The stunning rug is by Flor in Turkish Blend. These striped curtains are from Ikea while the lanterns are Pottery Barn. I found this original painting of a peony at a local home consignment store. The table underneath is something I had purchased years ago at an auction. It was black and now needed to stand out, so it got a coat of Regal Red spray paint. The side table, which is probably from the 1970's, was also a find from the consignment store. I stripped it of the old brown stain and thick varnish and gave it a fresh grey color and wax finish, which makes it feel like satin. The lamp was in Ethan Allens' clearance room and had an orange shade.

The dining table and chairs are Restoration Hardware in reclaimed Russian oak.
The outdoor chairs, rug, and pillows are Target; 2017. The table and stools are handed down from my husband's grandfather, who had modified the original surface by replacing it with teak. The planters and palms are from the local Green Acres nursery, Roseville, CA,
which is, hands-down, the place to go.
