Lots of good things came from the process of compiling a list of the area’s talented Black designers last month — mainly, the ability to meet new people and see some seriously great work. One of my new acquaintances is Brandi Wilkins of Three Luxe Nine Interiors in Frederick, Maryland. We got to talking about the beautiful images on her site, and she agreed to do this guest post on a dazzling niche in a client’s dining room in Laytonsville, proving that a single strong vignette can absolutely make a room.
I’ll let Brandi take it from here:
I’m so happy to have been invited to share a before-and-after project here. I thought that it would be great to share more details about one of our most favored spaces on our Instagram account. I affectionately named this space Our Happy Place. You’ll see why:
This project was a custom new build for a family of four. These clients began their project with a clear vision for what they wanted in their home and found a builder that could deliver their dreams. Three Luxe Nine was brought in to help with material selections, aid the clients in visualizing the finished spaces and, of course, to make it all look beautiful. And that we did!
Storage throughout the house was a big factor for the homeowners. Their desire was to maximize as much available space as possible to add functional storage, and the dining room was no exception, especially since the family entertains regularly, and this space is open to the family room. The clients knew immediately that a built-in dry bar was the answer for their dining room. CGC Builders built this piece to perfection — it was a treat watching it unfold.
Once complete, we swooped in with our signature styling that made the space what it is today, especially with this amazing sputnik pendant from Build.com. All in all, a wow-worthy open-concept dining room made for endless entertainment.
