Before the holidays I found this treasure trover of beautiful homes designed by Suzanne Kasler at Winners.
I've since sat down with it several times and find her work inspiring me to create a more timeless style in all my work. The image below inspired me to pair Louis XVI square back chairs with a dining table I'm designing for a lovely couple who are aiming to have a dining room they will cherish for many years.
Suzanne Kasler designed this stunning dining space (and the rest of the home) for a young couple with three kids. She created character and a sense of grandeur not often found in newly built homes or expected of a young family. Suzanne fuses a fun vibrant colour with a timeless look that respects the architecture of the house.
What I love best about this dining room is that it's the perfect example of what I like to call "forever decorating". This is not a trend driven home that will become dated in just a few short years. If in time the couple tires of the turquoise all that is required to create a whole new look is a paint job, new piping on the dining chairs, and reupholstering the settee. No furnishings will need to be replaced.
