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.
