High-gloss walls find their decorative counterpoints in a dining room by Pappas Miron
Design duo Pappas Miron pairs polish and patina.
WE WANTED TO CREATE A GLAMOROUS SETTING FOR ENTERTAINING BUT MAINTAIN A LEVEL OF CASUAL ELEGANCE.” —designer Tatyana Miron
everything in moderation. We’ve all heard the adage. And it certainly holds true in the decorative world. Just ask interior designers Alexandra Pappas and Tatyana Miron of Pappas Miron.
“It’s about balance—mixing materials and playing up color or texture,” Miron says. “A room should be tranquil and exciting at the same time. There should be moments of rest and moments of wow.” In this sumptuous dining room, a measured dose of sleek and sophisticated melds with textural elements. Robin’segg-blue lacquered walls and gilt chairs find balance when teamed with a patterned sisal rug and an unassuming burlap tablecloth. “The glossy walls are offset by the casual nature of the rug,” Pappas says. “And the gilt chairs are tempered by horsehair seats and an ivory burlap tablecloth.” Gracious glitz practiced with restraint.
