We love an inviting dining space. It just makes you and your guests feel welcome. And this dining room project that Houzz featured in one of their articles evokes a cozy, enveloping atmosphere. It’s an eclectic mix of styles and pieces (new, old, vintage and second hand) that weaves in pops of bold colors and patterns in a contemporary way while simultaneously honoring the period of the home, which dates back to the 1700’s. The result is a modern, comfortable and up to date space where you’ll want to hold lots of gatherings!
Behind the Room’s Design
The owners of this Warwick, New York Airbnb called Warwick’s White House wanted to create a space with high impact and lots of color – which tends to be a frequent request that we’re happy to deliver on.
We’re fans of bold hues that make a statement, which you can tell just by scrolling through our Facebook, Instagram and Houzz pages. And our wallpaper selection hit the mark for this project. The organic pattern and color breathes life into the room. This bold wallcovering choice is not only right on trend, it also resembles a style that might have been used in the 18th century, giving a nod to the 1767 Georgian home’s history.
“Colors in England, which influenced the Colonies, were often bright because of the rainy and cloudy climate,” says Marina Case, The Red Shutters principal designer. “Also, color was harder to control because of limited supplies, so often it was a bit more intense than the many options and more subtle shades that we have today.”
We also honored the owners’ request for a more eclectic style that looks like it has been curated over time by layering the room with a combination of vintage and new furniture and accessories. The design truly marries history with style, which is a hallmark of The Red Shutters.
