Mid-Century Modern Dining Room

Interior Design – Dining Room

This mid-century modern dining room was inspired by the inherited antique credenza and hutch. This piece was originally positioned on the opposite wall, with the table flipped along the window. We moved the credenza to the other wall, and reoriented the table to create an easy pathway into the kitchen. We then dressed up the credenza by painting it Benjamin Moore’s Gentleman’s Gray, and adding antique brass drawer pulls from RH. We polished the original brass feet for a completed look. The homeowners had salvaged bowling alley planks, which were used to build the custom dining table. The Anthropologie yellow leather chairs and white Mackinder chairs added a pop of shape and color to the room. We hung the Pottery Barn Barrett Chandelier over the table for a splash of bronze and glass. A combination of contrasting colors and bold accents give this mid-century modern dining room an inviting feel – great for family, guests, and entertaining.


“Becky helped us put together a basic plan for refinishing and refurnishing the main level of our new home. She was wonderful to work with, patient with lots of back and forth and our changing vision and preferences. We really appreciated that she was able to look past the current state of the rooms and help us picture what was possible! She also gave us lots of tips for small changes that will make a big difference in the overall look of the space. We have our plan now are excited to get started.”

“Becky created design boards for our living room and den spaces, and we were so pleased with the results that we expanded our re-design into our dining room (and eventually kitchen!) as well. She listened to our color and style preferences and recommended pieces that integrated both our style and fit the design of our home perfectly. She worked within the budget that we had in mind and offered affordable options, but also let us know if there was a “splurge” option available that we might like. Becky is friendly, responsive and very easy to work with. The project is still in process but the results so far are amazing!”

“Becky was the best. Smart, collaborative, efficient, with exquisite yet practical ideas that met my sensibilities, aspirations, needs and budget. I highly recommend!!”

“I started working with The Phinery the day before leaving to clear out my childhood home. I sent Becky a lot of photos from the house of all the items we had to sort through. Within 24 hours, she had cropped and sent me all the pieces she thought would be nice additions to my home. I felt relieved, excited and not as overwhelmed with the task of sorting through the many pieces of furniture, art and knick knacks. Since then, we’ve incorporated my beloved pieces from my childhood into my current home amidst all the beautiful updated style and touches with Becky’s guidance. Before I met Becky, I was paralyzed at my process to update my home because I couldn’t make a decision or trust my design sense. Becky came to meet with me and was so patient, personable, and came alongside my design ideas. She helped me feel more confident in my style and had many great ideas about how to enhance or brighten my current layout or idea. Together, we have completed my living room, dining room and my boys’ bedroom. Everyday I come home and feel refreshed at how warm, inviting, and stylish my home feels, It also reflects me, my personality and my style. Becky has been my savior this year! Going through such a transitional time in my life, I was always so excited to work with Becky on this project of making decisions about my home that would brighten my life. I can’t say enough wonderful things about her services and expertise. She is professional, poised, encouraging, enthusiastic and so much fun to work with. I will continue to use her as I chip away at the other rooms in my house!”
