How To: Create an Eclectic Dining Nook (From an Art Industry Insider)

As the cofounder of The Tappan Collective, a site that connects up-and-coming artists with aspiring collectors, curating effortlessly cool environments is something that comes naturally to Chelsea Neman. Still, she tends to follow a foolproof formula when decorating her own space, and she applied this philosophy when designing her dining space. "I love mixing old and new while trying to stay clean and minimal. I think the combination of the two elements helps to personalize a space," says Neman.

One of the most striking elements of Neman's dining nook is her use of a family heirloom. "The settee was my grandmother's. When she passed, I kept it along with her whiskey glasses; she loved her black label," says Neman.

Vintage seating and a table complete the furnishings, while two abstract paintings (remnants of Neman's art-school days) dominate the wall. To top off the look, Neman places two rose bouquets of varying heights in vessels: a simple cylindrical vase and a white pitcher.
