Accessories make the room! Here, an antique English dessert trolley is used to house a collection of silver meat domes -- fun when featured in a dining room. An antique Gustavian clock is hung above and neatly tucked around a collection of antique portraits and art.
A gorgeous black and white chest wows in this room with white walls and a black floor. White stripes on the black rug run perpendicular to the exposed beams in the ceiling. A collection of distressed frames breaks up the stark wall. Fresh, bright greens add gorgeous color among the decorative trinkets including books and an array of vases.

On loan from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., a portrait of former President John F. Kennedy by Jamie Wyeth hangs above the mantel. The room's bookshelves are filled with photos of the vice president's home from years past to celebrate the theme of "Holidays Past and Present."
A perfectly balanced arrangement of antiques adorns this French country chest. In addition to the antique portrait -- which makes a strong impact -- antique art items include bronze Blackamoor hands holding boxwood balls and an antique Imari charger. A tassel adds the finishing detail to the storage chest.
