Seamless Shimmer

by Lauren Setum

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve shared design ideas for the Master Bedroom and Kitchen (complete with a custom cabinet) in a friend’s new home. From those posts, you might have gathered that the dining room is semi-open to the kitchen. This means that whatever is done in the dining room will need to acknowledge and flow seamlessly from the kitchen.

The Dining Room (and staircase to the basement) is just behind this (in progress) wall. Goodbye, green!

That being said, the existing layout infers that the Dining Room is still a ‘special place’. It is a destination; the area in which guests will dine and the homeowners will entertain. The design of the space should convey this. So, with that in mind, I present you with this shimmery Schumacher wall covering. Oooo…Ahhh…

The wall covering in this colorway works with the Kitchen paint color but still serves to distinguish the dining area as a separate destination. The shimmery design would read as more of a texture than a pattern so it would provide a nice backdrop for other wall hangings without stealing the show. Plus, my friend had pointed out to me that she liked the subtle gold shimmer in curtains that the old homeowners had left behind; this wall covering speaks to that aesthetic preference. Check out the other fabulous colorways that this wall covering comes in…
