Midlevels, Hong Kong - When the clients, already parents to a four-year-old, had newborn twins, all glamour went out the window. There was, however, one place we could bring it back without changing anything structural in their renovated rental - the dining alcove. A vintage Hollywood Regency style six-tier acrylic chandelier hangs above a custom 8-person Chinese jade marble dining table and a durable sisal and jute rug. The un-moveable built-in sideboard was given new life with a coat of rich black paint, then topped by an agate printed wallpaper back, and illuminated by battery operated buffet lamps, ensuring no landlord backlash would ensue. Wipeable acrylic chairs with custom removable leather seat cushions ensure all members of the family, including the sticky-fingered ones, can eat together. Bon appétit!
