Although we have shown other spaces in this Transitional Edge Home (including the powder bathroom, kitchen, and teen bedroom), this is one of the first spaces Lauren started working on and has had a hand in every design decision from start to finish.  It is truly one of her favorite rooms she has ever designed and you can see why. It’s unique, dramatic, edgy, and gorgeous.

The existing furniture in this dining room was Tuscan in style and not in keeping with our new design. We decided to keep the table but completely modernize the seating. Our very talented dad (Jackie Bitton Fine Woodworking) built chairs for two of the sides with lower backs, simple legs, and a classic striped fabric and stark white leather benches for the other two sides with a mid-century modern leg for a unique twist. We kept all of the furniture low and simplistic so as not to overwhelm the space.

Our fabulous faux painter, Angel, created a textural wall treatment which is even more beautiful in person. It’s uneven, vertical stripes are painted silver. It has the most amazing highs and lows and can almost pass as wallpaper. We decided to faux paint the ceiling as well in a dark finish to give the room the drama it deserves. When we were all done, we replaced all of the ceiling lights so that they cast just the right glow to show off these finishes properly and put in all new stainless steel recess cans for a modern touch.

We wanted to keep the custom made draperies feeling not so heavy but still tailored. We opted to go for a sheer fabric in a similar color way to the walls with a striped linen texture. However, this room gets an exorbitant amount of light and can get very hot in the Summer months which created a challenge. We decided to line the draperies to help avoid this issue and went for a white lining option to showcase the texture of the fabric.

This light fixture, which was designed and created by Gali Art, makes for a very interesting focal point in the room.

Lauren worked with Angel again to create this incredible piece of custom art. We just love how it turned out. More details on this service to come.

A room is never complete without the perfect accessories. Our client selected these pillows herself. The color of the suede they are made from does a great job of tying in the warm elements from each adjacent room.

Lauren and her client hand picked each of these centerpiece items. They make for such an interesting cluster, and the different silver textures as well as the awesome shaped pitcher by Georg Jensen really helps to complete the space.

We had our amazing florist, Kayla of House of Magnolias, fill each of the vases with a modern arrangement. We can’t wait to share more about our new home floral service we are offering on Wednesday.

We still have lots to share from this Transitional Edge Home. We are working away to complete each space, and can’t wait to share it all with all of you.
