Dare Devil Dining Room

As I was flipping through the January issue of W Magazine, I came across the home of Agnes Gund, a philanthropist and world renowned art collector. I was drawn to her fabulous dining room with its peacock blue walls and the captivating painting by Roy Lichtenstein. I love the juxtaposition between the contemporary, avant-garde painting with the traditional table and chairs. The blue walls seem to harmonize the juxtapositions into a delicious room!

I dream of having a dining room with walls painted this same blue, and maybe these fun chairs?

Hi Kathryn,

I bought a few pieces from you last year for the Bahamas project--all are great down there. Funny--I was just fantasizing today about my next dining room being a watery peacock blue. Love it.
