A Textural Dialogue

Interior designer Chappell Paden sees interiors as a dialogue. In this dining room, a faux finish on the walls complements Cowtan & Tout drapery fabric. Antique French chairs were reupholstered with cut silk and velvet Corraggio fabric. A pair of antique louvered shutters flanks the antique sideboard, and the dining table is a French trestle farm table.

Designer Chappell Paden has created a home with an interior that emphasizes layers of texture. The artistry is in making the final product both functional and aesthetically cohesive. With a variety of textures—from exotic animals and complementary fabric patterns to sculptural artwork and weathered architectural fragments—Paden has woven the influences of outdoor surfaces together to develop a home reflective of its owners.
