Dine By Design East 2015: MODERN CHINOISERIE

Attica’s dining space boasts elaborate hand-painted garden scenes and custom furniture.

By |

Intricate chinoiserie garden scenes were the inspiration for Attica’s colourful dining space. “Gardens are universal and our room has a joyous, festive theme because it’s so colourful,” says Christopher Joyce. Joyce and Suzanne Saul pulled the space’s vibrant turquoise and orange palette from the peacock artwork in the space.

The duo spent days handpainting the elaborate floor-to-ceiling paintings that depicted birds and plants on an illuminated silver leaf backdrop. “It’s more of a mirror and it reflects any colour in the room,” says Joyce. “The antique finish makes it more painterly and heirloom-like.”

Joyce built the striking dining table, which features a peacock-feather motif steel base with mirrored inlay and a Carrera marble top. “It’s a modern take of the peacock feathers,” he says. He also constructed the classical Asian grid patterned ceiling.
