Dark Sophistication

An elegant black theme was the inspiration for this sophisticated dining room. Building on the red, green, and black in the tulip drapery fabric, interior designer Marsha Yessick created a space that is cohesive throughout. Though a different pattern, the rug complements the colors and design of the drapes and dining chairs. The chairs, once mahogany, are painted a striking black to carry out the black theme. A dramatic black chandelier was specially made for the homeowner and ordered from Texas. Raspberry red paint makes the walls pop with personality, and a hand-selected poppy painting above a buffet table is flanked by two tall shaded lamps with a bit of dangling sparkle.
