I thought you all would enjoy some before and after shots.  I just finished helping a young couple get their new dining room ready for the holidays — and what a difference a bit of decoration makes!  I’m not talking about the red and green kind, I’m talking about the canvas on which these go. Here is the same dining room before, no wallpaper, no drapery.

Lots of potential, but a bit sad.  I love her use of  mirrored picture frames and the delicately lit chandelier.  I suggest wallpaper and draperies in very neutral colors to preserve the simplicity and quiet elegance of her space.  Wallpaper went in first — it is a fresh, current print from York.

More lovely and closer to the potential, but still a bit bare and lacking warmth.  The simple, clean-lined, traditional window treatments complete the space.   Ready for the holidays!

So lovely!  Although I expect the design and decoration I recommend to be lovely, I often take as much delight in the finished room as my clients.
