Project Spotlight: Lovecraftian Dining Room

DiningBanner.png

Alright, this one’s personal - this is my dining room! For those who don’t know, my house is tiny - a whopping 950 square feet, including a third floor. So as you can imagine, rooms are small and entertainment space is limited. My husband is a big tabletop gamer, and I wanted to give him a space to entertain his friends, store his games, but also operate as an actual dining room. We have a small front room that fit the bill perfectly.

He’s a big fan of Lovecraftian lore, so I used that as inspiration. I pulled artwork from our existing collection, and used that as a kicking off point. We picked up a bookcase that could showcase our collection of books and collectibles, while hiding our game collection below. We also brought our record player in and put it on a cube storage unit that could house our records and double as a buffet.

Next we brought in a table that was as big as we could fit! Normally, I would not recommend this, but we knew this was a space that people would be sitting for long periods of time, and wanted to give them a comfortable amount of space. We found some mid-century dining chairs with a low profile that were a perfect fit. Then, we grounded it all with a rug, and some nerdy collectibles and a multi-layered centerpiece - and voila! Our dining/gameroom was born.

Project Spotlight: Botanical Living Room

This project is one that’s near and dear to my heart - it’s one of the first big projects that we completed, and we were given a lot of creative freedom. The client was a big fan of greenery and plants, but wanted a formal space that wasn’t just covered in plantlife.

The living room was covered in a dark red wallpaper put up by the previous owners - and holy moly, was it a pain to get off!

A before shot from the client - we really need to get better at photographing spaces beforehand!

Once the wallpaper was down, we dove into color selection - we came down to 4 colors, and with the client’s blessing, we turned to instagram and let people vote on their favorite choice!

Luckily, our followers have great taste, and a gorgeous shade of green won out. From there, we began curating pieces, both second-hand and from our favorite local vendors. The client was looking for almost entirely all new furniture, but had once antique chair she hoped to find a way to integrate.

We took it to our incredibly talented upholsterer, and picked a gorgeous embroidered fabric. After some reshaping and love, we had a stunning new statement chair!

Next, we brought in a stunning chandelier from Arhaus (which yours truly hung every single crystal individually in 98 degree heat, yikes!) and a graphic floral rug. We were also able to find some beautiful art pieces in the client’s collection that tied the space together.

This project has been complete for about a year and a half now, and it’s still in the same condition as the day we left it. It has a special place in my heart, and will always be a part of my portfolio!

Margot Meanie is synonymous with all things witchy and fabulous - her taste is a perfect balance of spooky and trendy, old school and glam. She inspired me to make a space as eclectic as her wardrobe, with many splashes of witchcraft and magick.
