What once was a boring, blank slate of space is now a dining room dripping with divine detail thanks to Joni Spear of Joni Spear Interior Design.
“The overall feel of the room went from a bland 1980s white box to a space filled with warmth and elegance,” Spear says. “The mood shifts when you enter the room and you’re transported to a state of elevated relaxation.”
To inspire relaxed conservation, Spear selected a beautiful blush color for the ceiling and decorated the walls with vivacious cut velvet and metallic animal print wallpaper to give the space a nostalgic ambiance. The millwork, meanwhile, was freshly painted in a semi-gloss alabaster to offer relief from the contrasting colors.
“Linen drapery panels seamlessly silhouette the cozy window seat,” Spear continues. “Cleanable-yet-regal velvet fabric upholstered cushions, ornamented with a braided trim, add a final pop of elegance.”

Spear adds: “As a practical trend, formal dining spaces have largely become obsolete in favor of great, dynamic kitchens,” Spear says. “However, bucking the movement, my young but highly traditional client wanted to enjoy evening meals as a routine [after] the family’s scattered and hectic days.”
