Copy Cat Design: Celerie Kemble Dining Room

Friday, March 23, 2012

I'm so thrilled you guys seem to love these copy cat posts from Colleen as much as I do! Colleen has the best eye and knows when to splurge and when to save. She also is a FANTASTIC flea market partner in crime. We always find gems together. My favorite find was these midcentury chrome and brass coffee tables for Colleen's living room. So gorgeous!!

Here's Colleen with an amazing dining room redux:



I'm so excited to do this reader-requested Celerie Kemble dining room; I worked on the issue of Lonny in which it was featured! It was absolutely my favorite interior.


If this room were for a client, I'd trawl the flea market and Ebay for a vintage option, but I'm quite enjoying this new chandelier that nods to the original Murano. For a different but still lovely Murano-style look, try the Calais Chandelier from Z Gallerie.

Celerie used shagreen chairs of her own design in this room. Grey chairs with Mid-Century lines are still faithful to the look. Another option are these Klismos chairs from West Elm.

Complete the chairs with plush mohair in a chocolate hue.

I've been dreaming of this flatware for months now. It's on my "when I'm rich and fabulous" list. Target fortunately has an interpretation in stainless.

One of the Jonathan Adler decorating tips I've taken to heart is to replace your hardware with lucite. It's instant glamour!

To keep window treatments from being over the top, pair the lucite rod with linen drapes.

These ceramic artichokes would be cute on a mantel too.

The art in the room is by Alex Timchula, but framing wallpaper is a great option. You could also get botanical prints from Etsy.

Most lightly-stained farmhouse tables would do the trick here. Top with simple glass plates.

This pale peachy-pink evokes just enough glamour.

Spray paint the hardware a brass shade and you'd be good to go! For something a little more Regency, try this buffet from Home Decorator's.
