Get the Look: Black and White Dining Room

Get the look of this black and white dining room from our Winter catalog

In an ever more complicated world, sometimes it’s nice to take things to a simpler place. But of course here at Ballard, we still want simple to be stylish! That’s why black and white is one of our favorite color palettes. It’s classic, easy to coordinate pieces, and can still deliver a dramatic focal point.

In this black and white dining room, we chose all white pieces, then created a silhouette by using a dark wall color, Sherwin Williams Urbane Bronze. We started with a whitewashed pedestal table, chinoiserie chairs, a beaded chandelier, and we brought in our favorite Louis chairs in gray fabrics. The wall color certainly turns what would otherwise be a lackluster dining room into a space with personality and style.

Shop all of the pieces in this room:

Andrews Pedestal Table in Whitewash
Dayna Side Chairs in White
Cara 3-Light Chandelier
Luisa Ceramic Vases

    I love the style of this dining room!! If one already have similar chairs how many yards of each fabric would you recommend for reupholstering 4 chairs like this?? Also, do you have any other recommendations for 2 end chairs in a different style than the ones pictured? Beautiful design again!!

      An upholstered or someone who can make slipcovers would be able to tell you exactly how many yards they’ll need. Every craftsman is different, so check with them before you order fabric!
      Happy decorating,
