Designer Becki Owens transforms a dark, Tuscan space into a formal, yet fresh dining room with a soft, elegant feel. The room is inspired by a Capiz chandelier, creating an iridescent, beachy focal point that the eye is immediately drawn to. A rustic dining table is surrounded by comfortable, tufted chairs with nailhead trim.
Breezy fabrics, woven textures and seashells work surprisingly well with evergreens, mercury glass and elegant china. With seashells available in craft stores year round, you don't have to live by the seaside to use beach inspired decor when the holidays roll around. Add in favorite pieces beach vacation finds to give the table a personal touch.
