Hi, we're Jake & Sarah

This week, we flew to New York for a dining room makeover! Our client had a beautiful home in a quiet part of Long Island. Her dining room is spacious and filled with lots of natural light, it just needed some color and texture to make it feel more intentional and warm.

Before

After

We started out by painting the main wall this green HGSW color, “Time and Space.” Then we added some 3.5 inch mdf trim vertically. We wanted the door to flow with the overall design, so we went ahead and painted it as well.

We swapped out the light fixture for this black textural pendant, and added a jute rug. I love how it ties the space together and is perfect for a dining room since it’s really durable and hides stains well. We used the client’s existing dining set, but just rotated it to help highlight the length of the room.

We assembled this beautiful buffet table from World Market, brought in some quaint lighting through this table lamp and some pillar candles, and secured a large ornamental mirror to the wall using a hook and wire. We added this faux olive tree into this ceramic pot, and I think this is the best faux olive tree I’ve seen yet!

After all this was installed, I felt the room was lacking some pattern. So we headed to Lowe’s and found these subtle plaid curtains– viola! They were truly the perfect finishing touch.

Our client wanted a small Puja corner (prayer corner), and I wanted to make something custom for them. We installed this black hexagon tile on top of this shelf so it would be easier to clean with oils and incense and also just look custom. We hung some religious art and bells around, finished off the area with this beautiful sconce, and the room was complete!
