Before and After: A Real Housewife's Dining Room

Before and After: A Real Housewife's Dining Room

Jill Zarin of The Real Housewives of New York City redecorated her family's Upper East Side apartment with the help of interior designer Brad Boles of, not coincidentally, Zarin Fabrics, her family business. The makeover was featured in Traditional Home. I'm not going to lie: as dreary, new money (sorry), and dated as the apartment was before, I'm still not keen on all of the updates. But I did see a major improvement in the dining room, which previously had elaborately swagged draperies, heavy mahogany woodwork, and a Venetian/Tuscan theme gone wrong. See how she changed the look, and the mood of the room, when you

.


Jill replaced the ostentatious drapery with pleated roman shades, making it instantly more modern and fresh. And, she chose a beautiful sea-foam green color palette, which brightened the room up and made the city views the spotlight. As for the furniture, she went with quiet, understated pieces like white-tufted chairs and a round glass-top table. A few stylish accents like a set of Foo dogs and an art-deco chandelier made it seem a bit more of the moment.

Way to go, Jill! I applaud you. What do you think? If you love it, it can be yours: the apartment is for sale for $3.2 million.

I don't care for the seafoam green color or the roman shades. Other than that, I love it. I love the bright blue foo dogs and that chandelier is gorgeous!
