Ask the De­signer

Mix Up Din­ing Spa­ces

The Sentinel-Record - HER - Hot Springs - - In This Issue - Sandy Sut­ton

I re­al­ize that Thanks­giv­ing will be here be­fore I turn around, and it takes time to get things done, so I am an early bird with my ques­tion.

My din­ing room is spa­cious and I re­ally love my clas­sic cam­paign style din­ing ta­ble but I want to up­date/re­fresh my room with ex­cit­ing new chairs. I fa­vor soft tones of cream, whites and blues, but I'm will­ing to go more dra­matic with these chairs. I also have a nice col­lec­tion of blue and white ginger jars on dis­play in this room.

I have seen your work and I can't wait for you to help me and I can also say “Sandy Sut­ton de­signed this room!”


Hello Nora the Early Bird,

Thank you for your ques­tions, and it is not too early at all.

So you are for­tu­nate to have a large space and a clas­sic cam­paign din­ing ta­ble (one of my fa­vorites). This style of­fers clean lines and it is easy for us to mix in other styles to re­ally glam it up.

I am crazy about this sap­phire blue but­toned-up chair. It is just the op­po­site of the straight lines in the ta­ble and you know they say that op­po­sites at­tract!

This punch of color and ser­pen­tine curves in the back and in the legs cre­ate a per­fect vintage mid­cen­tury look. It will cer­tainly re­fresh and up­date your din­ing room.

The sap­phire fab­ric will en­hance all your blue and white pieces and I know your guests will feel they are din­ing in Old Hol­ly­wood. Dim the lights and light the can­dles — it's show­time!
