A Wonderful Mix of Styles in One Room

A Wonderful Mix of Styles in One Room

Recently I visited the exquisite apartment home of Tom Andrews, where during my house tour shoot, I fell in love with his dining room. Somehow, he has seamlessly merged the original old world charm of the architecture with modern industrial surfaces, and finished with organic textures.

While Tom aims to show off the original bones of the building, like the amazing windows, the original doors and built in cabinetry- he also has created modern and organic elements to bring this dining room together. I love how he has matching industrial carts on both sides of the room, completed with stacked mirrors (three on each wall) which he purchased from CSN.com. Combined with the gorgeous windows and natural light, it opens up the dining space so much to create a really bright inspired room.

Tom brings in his love of nature and organic touches with stacking decorative chopped fire wood inside the cart. Also I love that while you see a modern round glass table top, it's base is made of a wide wood root. He juxtaposes the table with modern wire frame chairs by Bertoia. The lovely tall tree that hangs high in the corner provides a softness to the sleek space- also providing some luscious color to the white walls.
