A custom rift-cut oak communal table designed by Jasmine Vaughan—formerly of Made & State and founder of Maxwell Gray Interiors—and built by Jewell Hardwoods of Oregon City takes center stage in Dame’s private dining room. To create a “jewelbox effect,” Vaughan painted the ceiling and wainscotted walls Oasis Blue by Benjamin Moore, a rich peacock hue.
designer Jasmine Vaughan’s first hospitality project since she launched her new firm, Maxwell Gray Interiors, this past summer—is a beaut. Though its early reputation was built largely on co-owner/sommelier Dana Frank’s 140-strong list of natural wines, it’s the design that slays us—all moody blues, matte blacks, antique glass accents, and watery Eskayel wallpaper. To escape the dinner-service din, book the private dining room, which can host up to 14 at its custom oak dining table, built extra wide to accommodate the crush of wine bottles that inevitably accumulates in the middle. h
