Denner Project: Dining Room Reveal

One of the most asked about rooms from the Denner project is easily Daryl-Ann Denner's dining room. Walking into the nuuds founder and Dallas influencer's house, this is the first area you see, and man oh man, does it make a statement! Custom commissioned furniture and art made this a one-of-a-kind space. Keep scrolling to see!

Daryl-Ann Denner's Dining Room

This dining space is all about texture. Since we were working in a space that doesn't traditionally have textiles, we used the furniture and lighting design to achieve this look. We enlisted brilliant local craftsman, Willie Graeber, to build this custom table (actually several tables throughout the home). It's got a fantastic base with a reeded detail and is long enough to seat up to 12 people. Daryl-Ann and Dan already owned this set of dining chairs, and there was no question that we should keep these in the design! We hung a gesso plaster painted chandelier above the set.

The star of the show is this gallery wall of custom commissioned art by L.Adorah. The artwork features the couple's vows and Psalm 91 made to look as timeworn letters. They are so beautiful, so textural, and so very personal, and we think they're the absolute perfect finishing touch on the Denner's dining room.

Arched Entry

If you haven't caught on yet, every aspect of this home needed to feel organic from the moment you walked through the front door. We were inspired by things that come from the earth, so we've got a lot of texture at play in a layered, neutral color palette. This theme paired with modern forms, like the round-top front doors and archways, set the backdrop for the design.

Black windows complemented the Benjamin Moore White Dove painted walls for this neutral interior design.

Modern Minimalist Powder Bath

The powder bath, tucked just off the formal living room and dining room, kept the textural theme just as strongly as the other rooms. We added the most incredible travertine sconces along with a pill-shaped mirror above the reeded oak floating vanity topped with a black stone vessel sink. Not shown: the toilet with a heated seat. I now need one in every bathroom in my home – ha!
