Feminine Friday: Soften a Dining Room

Dining rooms can become sort of cold and stark.  I guess it's all of the wood pieces that we typically place in the room; table, chairs, hutch & buffet, servers, and reflective items like mirrors, lighting fixtures, and shiny plates.  We've seen the trend over the past few years to add upholstered parsons chairs to the set, adding some softness and even pattern...and what a difference it makes.

See what a set of upholstered chairs can do to warm up a room?  These are gorgeous chairs to begin with in a small, warm hounds tooth pattern.  But it's the finishing details such as the nail heads and tufting that really make them and this room special.

 
The tufting adds a feminine softness to the entire room.  Paired with gilt mirrors and luxurious draperies, this room is rich, warm, welcoming, and extremely feminine.
