Although my last Swell Shopping post was a Parisian dining room, I can’t help but share another French dining room today, especially since I’m starting a big dining room makeover this summer! This space is more traditional, but the brilliant gold chandelier immediately caught my eye and brought the space to life for me. The pale blue walls (reminds me of Suzanne Kasler’s dining room in the Southeastern Showhouse), the mirrored wall, and the pale neutrals on the chairs and fireplace balances the heavy dining table and gives the room a contemporary air with the lighter colors. The architecture is incredible, of course, but I also loved the detail of the color on the backs of the chairs, the sconces reflected in the mirrored wall, and the carved fireplace mantel. I loved recreating this look, and discovered the huge selection of Renaissance art prints on Art.com. When you can’t have the real thing, a canvas print of these old pieces brings a similar feel with an interesting subject matter. Click through to shop the look!
