THE SILVER LINING ON A TRADITIONAL DINING ROOM

I'm not a total traditionalist when it comes to decor...not traditional at all. BTW, When COCOCOZY has been written up, my style has been called "eclectic"..."eclectic" to me always sounds like a bit of a kooky descriptor...doesn't that just mean "all over the place" when it comes to decor? Hmmm....

I think though I do like a mixture of classic and modern - a blend of sorts.

This dining room is totally traditional but I like it - it doesn't adhere to my decor preference of "blending" styles and leaning a bit more towards the bold and modern. It caught my eye though as I was looking through the portfolio of New York interior designer Meg Braff. She is known for making traditional feel young. This does feel like a fresh version of traditional!

Love the silvery greys in this space...I love the rich grey chairs with the white trim and I LOVE THE CHANDELIER!

  1. What a gorgeous room! It is bright and airy, perfect for a champagne brunch, but I bet it gets glamorous when the sun goes down, making it the perfect locale for a sexy dinner party.

  3. I really love the size of that table. Hoping I have one like that some day. Actually, round is great for I big table, I think, but the dimensions of this one also seem good for the space.

  6. Who says grey is boring!? This room is gorgeous. I agree with you Coco, it has a lot of traditional elements to it, but I think the grey makes it appeal to the classic modern style I love!
