This room… I want to spend all my days in this serene, ethereal space. An extension of the “formal” living room in our Moore Residential project is the formal dining room. In the last post I talked about the original fireplace and how we had it restored to show the original copper finish and now we get an even better look the beauty. It is the showpiece of the living room and dining room along with that brilliant built-in planter that further blurs the line between the outdoors and indoors, like the brickwork I mentioned in the living room post as well.

We all instantly fell in love with the idea of a burl wood dining table so the search was on and when AllModern got involved we found the perfect one. The chairs, also from AllModern, are a gorgeous ivory complement.

And lest we forget, here is a peek at the before…



The color palette came together rather magically for this space. We had the burl dining table, the chandelier, and the fabric for the blush drapery all chosen as we started to look for art. My friend Lou Mora later sent me an email with a line sheet of his latest pieces, that would soon be available for purchase, and I couldn’t show Mandy fast enough. The colors, the mountains, the dreamy layers, we were all sold right away. We had him print a custom extra large version of the artwork and once on the wall, it tied the colors of the space together just right.

  • How did they clean the copper there? Did it have to be ground/sanded or was a chemical cleaner used? Did they then treat it with any sort of coating?

  • Sarah! Everything is incredible, it’s been so fun to watch from the beginning! Question, in the Architectural Digest video there is a little bar cart in the dining room, do you know the source?

    This is absolutely gorgeous, but what happened to that beautiful old monstera? I hope you found a loving home for him 🤞

    I LOVE every inch of this house. I know the drapes were custom, but can you share the fabric details – it’s beautiful!

  • Megan

    Love the Lou Mora print! What size is in the dining room? 30×45 or 48×72? Hard to tell how large that table and wall is for scale. Thanks!

    Hi Sarah!
    Wondering – there doesn’t appear to be floor trim in the house now? If not – what would you call that? I’m interested in knowing more about it.
