A Window into A Glamorous Dining Room

Marvin is an industry leader in creating well-crafted, long-lasting windows and doors that are highly customizable. The team at Marvin recently reached out and asked me to design a window or door and create a space to go with it. I opted for the versatile Ultimate Double Hung Window and decided to design a glamorous dining room around the windows. In my mind, the room would be quite dramatic– large in scale, with the Ultimate Double Hung Windows on three of the four walls along with soaring ceilings. Because the windows are beautifully constructed and would frame the architecture of the room, I’d actually opt not to do window coverings– just imagine a beautiful, verdant garden on the opposite side!

I would ground the space with a bold, graphic abaca rug and I would keep the palette neutral, but include high contrast. A classically styled Louis XVI-style dining table and side chairs keep the room traditional at its core, while a sculptural chandelier and host and hostess chairs upholstered in Brunschwig & Fils Les Touches add a touch of whimsy. The rest of the elements throughout the room are all rather traditional as well, but are composed with a modern sensibility. I’ve included an ebony buffet with gilded accents and a marble top, chic lamps, a beautiful, antiqued mirror, classic pedestals, a chic settee, and graphic art. The accessories add interest, but lend themselves to the overall spirit of the room– think Myrtle and boxwood topiaries, potted orchids, hurricanes, and a touch of sumptuous Scalamandre Tigre Velvet. The wonderful thing about Marvin’s Ultimate Double Hung Windows is that they work seamlessly with my design and will provide the functionality and durability that I strive to deliver to my clients.
