Stenciled Dining Room
A client had beautiful dishes from Eastern Europe that she inherited from her mother. These were on display in two china closets in the dining room. The dishes were beautiful patterns with vibrant, intense colors. The re-decoration of the dining room needed to be a good background for these prized pieces and also be a good transition for the kitchen and foyer. A soft gold base color was selected then a damask stencil was applied in full pattern under the chair rail, then softened with a tangerine strie. Above the chair rail, sections of the same stencil was used and applied in a shaded, random pattern, then a colorwash was applied over all the walls to soften.
