Alliance Sotheby’s International Realty is excited to welcome our new guest contributor Anne Anderson Home. Anne is on a mission to make decorating fun! Her posts here will show you how good design doesn’t have to break the bank, and how a little creativity goes a long way. In her opinion (and we tend to agree), the best houses are the ones that have evolved over time and don’t take themselves too seriously.
Anne’s inaugural post features her own personal dining room…..
I am so thrilled to share my finished dining room with you. The biggest challenge I faced was that I wanted to make the room special without it being the only thing you noticed when you walk in the front door. This house is an open concept and the star of the show when you walk in is the view. We are on the Tennessee River and my goal has always been to make that the first thing noticed. So the dining room was a pickle, because I wanted to elevate it’s formality without making it overbearing. I first started with a clean slate by giving everything a fresh coat of white paint.
Now I started adding color gradually. I painted the ceiling a light blue and at first thought that might be just enough color…
I still felt like something was missing…after looking at several different wallpapers and considering stenciling the room myself, I decided to call a professional and have the walls custom painted. It has turned out to be one of my MOST FAVORITE things in the house.
The finished product is a soft, beautiful room that flows with the rest of the house.
