Modern Monday: Green Drama

Modern Monday starts with my kind of action; dining room drama. A long table with plenty of seating is a perfect invitation for harmony, discord, laughter, tears and sometimes song all revolving around human connectivity during meals.

This wood and stone table is dressed with identical green chairs and tall vases of flowers that touch the whimsical white floral chandeliers that dance in a uneven line of light. A gigantic piece of art and a greenery coiffed fireplace set the mood. Notice the grey walls and light wood herringbone floors. Via AD.

Modern Monday: Powerful Pink Pastel

Modern Monday features this contemporary pastel dining room. Although the main color combination is white and pink, the dynamic custom mural with periwinkle, sage, yellow and black brings depth, excitement and strength to this space.

Coffered ceilings are often in traditional/transitional homes. This design details is an elegant feature that provides depth and also signifies a level of grandeur to a room through the illusion of visual weight.

This spacious room gives the large wood table with elegant two-tone fabric chairs (with contrasting textures) in teal and aqua plenty of breathing space. Space to layout a spread amongst loved ones. It balances intimate exchanges between guests and hearty exchanges across the table.

Did you notice the flowers hydrangeas? That lush flower symbolizes heart-felt gratitude for some cultures and for others a note of boastfulness. It is your decision. Just give and receive with style and soul.
