By simply adding a book tower to one corner for keeping favorite hardcovers handy and on display, and incorporating a rolling caddy to house art and craft supplies, the space is perfectly equipped to be used for creative and work purposes any day of the week.
This casual dining nook features an industrial-style table paired with vibrant patterned chairs and a cushioned bench. The sleek, clean-lined look of the chandelier works well with the dining table, and arched windows add a touch of graceful charm.
The structure merges the desire for comfort, refinement, and modern living with the straightforward construction and materiality of ranch elements like the dog run, carport, cattle fencing and cisterns. The rhythm of wood trusses and purlins in the main living area is expressed to the interior. A “cold roof” of rigid insulation is constructed above these conditioned spaces. The kitchen is conceived as a painted wood clad building inside the larger main volume.
In this elegant lake house, the kitchen and dining room are connected through an extra wide doorway that gives the two spaces an open feeling and allows for people and food to move easily throughout the two spaces making entertainment a breeze.
Natural lighting from the glass patio doors highlights the spacious feel of the open floor plan design. A tall, sleek dining table is lined with matching wood chairs. Metal end chairs topped with whit fur throws add intrigue to the set up. Two large pendant lights hang above the table and tie in white surroundings to the neutral wood tones.
Pink walls bring a girlish feel to this transitional dining room. The large, white pendant light above the dining table echoes the handsome wall sconces while the clean lines of the neutral seating keeps this space feeling fresh and simple.
To create this unique space, designers combined a Mid-Century Modern style with aspects of the ranch style home. Modern chairs add plenty of comfortable seating, and sport muted colors to complement the rustic, live edge, large grain wood table that gets a touch of glamor from its gold legs, creating a rough, yet elegant feel in the space.
White walls and floors set the perfect stage for playing with color in small amounts. Select a large abstract art piece as the starting point to set a welcoming table. Then, use a few of its colors for dishes, serving pieces, placemats, napkins, flowers and even paint on a chair or two.
