WG Holiday House Tour – Dining Room – Before & After

WG Holiday House Tour – Dining Room – Before & After

As you know, I was asked to assist a homeowner in decorating her home for the Webster Groves Holiday House Tour this year and I am positively ecstatic at how her house turned out, especially this knockout of a dining room!  Who wouldn’t want to host a dinner party in this space?

Here are the before photos…we had a great palette to start with and unique features like her carved table and antique chandelier.



Her dining room table is complemented by a beautiful buffet with silver accents.  Immediately, we thought of doing a gilded metallic theme for this room.


We went shopping for a few items and we also raided her china cabinet to set the dining room table…


Luckily, she had beautiful gold rimmed glassware and plates and they looked great with the silver accents, like the stunning Smith & Hawken wreath from Target!  We also added a crisp white runner and napkins (great deals at Pottery Barn) while moving her existing runner to the buffet.


One of the days we were decorating, it started snowing huge fluffy snowflakes which really put us in the holiday mood since it was still 2 weeks until Thanksgiving!


We wanted something spectacular for the dining room centerpiece and I really just fell in love with this concept.  When our floral designer for the tour fell through; I was able to call on Patti Porter of Rusted Chandelier to make me a fabulous arrangement in a hurry!  Here’s our concept photo…


And here’s the amazing arrangement by Rusted Chandelier!  It really makes the room!


Here are photos of the completed room! Love how it turned out!





For the buffet, we used her original linen table runner and added Mercury elements, lovely silver reindeer, pine cones along with leftover pine roping and battery LED lights.


Some close-ups of the table settings & centerpiece…


We added a bit of glitter ribbon, ornaments & gilded chargers to complete the look…



Huge thank you to Julie Tesson of Tesson Interiors for helping with this project and for all who came out for the tour! Happy Holidays & Happy Decorating!
