Dining Room Make Over

Private Maryland residence dining room interior design by Rhonald Angelo Interiors.  Rhonald on Instagram: rhonald_angelo_interiors .

Rhonald describes his design process and the details: "This design replaced an outdated and inappropriate country French design for the client's dining room which was dark, a north facing room with only one window. Coral was her color choice. This color stands in contrast to light colored walls, a new lighting scheme and Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring. Modern furniture and Asian accents furnish the room. Alabaster urns are antiques, round ebonized mirror, eighteenth century Tang Dynasty Chinese dancer, Chinese Elm-wood stand. Small antique Colombian terracotta vessels hold Bonsai plants. "Ice" serving tray displays live oranges. Antiques, no matter how small or large, infuse soul into any modern interior space".


Ellicott City, MD dining room interior design by Rhonald Angelo Interior.  Photo: ©Todd A. Smith

To create this image I used a mix of ambient, diffused and spot lighting, careful placement of the objects and reflections and post processing in Photoshop including removal of a certain photographer from the mirror.  Photo: ©Todd A. Smith.

Luxury Town Home Master Bedroom Photography

Photographing this master bedroom shot of the Kenley Federal luxury town home model in Ashburn, VA at dusk created a nice mood in the image. I added a bit of extra light to the very dark wooden dresser and night stand to bring out their beautiful details. In addition I placed subtle spot lighting in other areas of the room to keep the viewer's eye moving through the image.
