I first fell in love with this home belonging to Megan Tagliaferri when her house tour went up on C Magazine, and I became instantly obsessed with every detail. But there was one room that really captured my attention…this glamorous dining room… with a bar!
Whenever I land on a room I love for the Room of the Week, I speculate on how the room came to be – what design challenges were faced, maybe even what I would have done differently. But this time, I went straight to the source for the scoop! Megan was nice enough to hop on the phone with me for a quick download of the project to share all…
I found out – as I suspected – that many of the architectural details in the room were original to the space. The gorgeous floors, the architecture, even the bar!
And that many of the furnishings are vintage pieces that Meghan had refurbished. Yes, including those gorgeous bar pendant lights (I asked!).
Of course, it was all given a complete makeover – from the granite surfaces to the art installation, much care was taken in keeping the original details but giving it a mod-vintage style. One key piece of that being those stunning copper art installations.
The artist is Walead Beshty and, in Megan’s own words, “He is really about the exchange and engagement of the copper surfaces and your abstract experience with the art. It starts from the installers fingerprints leaving their mark on work, then the transformation as each viewer touches! I LOVE his work. It adds great reflection in the interior space.”
I adore the idea of art that grows with you like this – how each person who views it can literally leave their own mark on it if you wanted them to. And how the patina will age with the owners too. It’s so much more than art – it’s a history piece! You can see more of his work here.
As for this room – i think I hardly need to explain all of the elements I love in this space because there’s not a single thing I would change! To see the rest of the home, check out Megan’s amazing portfolio (her bedroom is also a personal favorite of mine!) and get the whole house tour.
