Does anyone remember the Southern Accents Old Dominion Showhouse in McLean, Virginia done a few years back by David Mitchell? It was extraordinary. One of my favorite rooms was the dining room. Mr. Mitchell had the paneled walls painted to resemble de Gournay hand painted silk wallpaper. For more of the house, click here. As Mr. Mitchell says, " a dining room is about the chairs, the walls, and the chandelier." Stay tuned later this week when I reveal my own dining room makeover that I am just putting the finishing touches on.
