I decided to add a few elements in the room that would bring King’s vision full circle. I replaced the existing curtains with gorgeous organza silk blue panels. I replaced the existing wall art with a custom made abstract painting of an ocean view and I put a WOW into the rambling landscape centerpiece by adding submersible LED lights to the orchid arrangements so they would really glow during the dinner. I also used real tropical leaves instead of placemats or a table linen. I used the existing lights in the informal dining room and wrapped them with a cool blue grass paper so they looked like I had made custom tropical lamp shades for the lights.
This must have been a difficult decision for Rocco to make on this episode. Both chefs had major passion for what they love to do and their styles were completely different which was a real blast for me!
Bring the party on people!!! I am looking forward to many more challenges out of the kitchen and into the dining rooms!!
Feel free to ask specific questions regarding the creative process for these rooms and how I got to the finished product.
