Glam Farmhouse Dining Room

This family is always on the go and for years has eaten around the bar in the kitchen, from breakfast to dinner. In fact for years the dining room housed a pool table and not an actual dining table. It was time for a change, and the couple decided that they could simultaneously redo their home, and support a charity that is near and dear to their hearts, Alzheimer’s TN. As part of the local Show House, Alzheimer’s Tennessee Designer Home & Garden Tour, we selected the dining room to design for them. This couple is very laid back and down to earth, with a country farmhouse aesthetic, but wanted to dress it up and make it more adult now that the children had moved out. It’s a small space, but they wanted it to feel spacious and be able host formal parties, but be comfortable enough for breakfasts.

The dining room was designed around the client’s lifestyle and combines rustic and glamourous. We took an intimate and holistic approach to designing this functional and stylish space.
From floor to ceiling, this relaxing, yet elegantly designed room sits upon a wool and silk hand-knotted area rug – not to be missed! The round to oval, rustic java finish dining table sits casually upon the rug. The time worn finish brings the warmth of rustic design paired with a timeless transitional design. The chairs have a thin cane back, French linen seats, and black vintage tacks. The Italian Demilune chest features an artisan finish on hand carved mahogany with antiqued hardware.

Two pieces of “jewelry” in the room are the polished chrome chandelier wit individually dressed crystals and drum shade; as well as the custom window treatments on an acrylic rod with metal accents and glass ball finials. Nestled in between the window treatments are three antique styled pulleys from a horse drawn carriage to add a rustic and unexpected touch. The ethereal watercolor “Wild Horse” piece of art is an equestrian nod to the estate. To keep the space feeling open and bright, we opted for a neutral and light color palette base with high contrast on the wood finishes and crisp white accents to give it a more modern feel.

We wanted to design a space with casual charm that immediately feels comfortable and familiar, mixed with a touch of glamour to indulge in a little bit of everyday luxury, and the clients love it.
