Centuries collide to yield a jewel box of a dining room in this New York City apartment designed by author Maureen Footer. A large Aubusson tapestry from Galerie Perpitch & Bringand visually enlarges the tiny space, and provides old-world contrast to the sleek Saarenin table and Brno chairs from Knoll. The walls are clad with a Lee Jofa silk velvet, and the Louis XV-style chandelier is from Nesle Inc.
Elegant style takes a laidback turn in this New York City dining room designed by Ashley Whittaker. A woven rug from Serena and Lily sets a casual tone for the bold Prussian blue Gracie wallcovering and a slew of antiques, like the table from Christie’s and the chandelier. Whittaker also shook things up by upholstering the dining chairs, from John Rosselli & Associates, in two fabrics: the outside backs are covered in a floral Muriel Brandolini fabric while inside backs and seats in a plum Global Leathers leather. Silk curtains from Scalamandre plus an antique mirror from 1stdibs play up the room’s height.

Liven up your space by featuring pretty prints on rugs, window treatments, pillows nad more. Block print dhurrie rugs can command a pretty penny. To get the look for less, use a pretty wall stencil to apply a pattern to a large piece of artist canvas or drop cloth with a foam stencil brush. For an 8' by 10' rug, you'll need about a quart of standard interior paint in a satin finish. Wash stencil every other use to keep paint from clumping and elaving unwanted marks on the rug.
