This traditional kitchen by designer Kerry Fidler sports recessed panel cabinet doors in beige. Rustic lights hang overhead, and a kitchen island -- surrounded by casual, wood and cane chairs and topped by a vase of cheery sunflowers -- provides an inviting spot for dining.
This eat-in kitchen features a charming breakfast nook with a round white wooden table and classic cane back dining chairs. An oversized metallic pendant light hangs above the table, adding an industrial vibe, while a gray and white striped rug is positioned underneath. Picture frame moldings enclose framed photographs.
This open plan living and dining room doesn't get a lot of sunlight, so designer Matthew Cane used soothing cool tones to help visually brighten the look. He also selected items that could do double duty in the multi-functional space: the blue-gray dining chairs work well in the living room when there's a need for extra seats.
The owners' love of the sea and all things natural are showcased in vibrant style in this Floridian dining room. Handmade cane seat chairs and a matching Asian-inspired table provide a fashionable seating arrangement for guests. A shell embellished mirror adds drama and depth to the space.
White is a classic tone often used in shabby chic designs. HGTV fan rnhey wanted to create a light, airy dining room ideal for casual year-round entertaining, so she used this fresh hue as the base for her entire design. The upholstered cane-backed chairs, freshly painted table and vintage marine life prints are reminiscent of relaxed summers and shabby seaside homes. White beadboard walls allow the sand-colored curtains and accessories to act as complementary accents rather than simply appearing in the background. For an elegantly shabby look, combine your rustic pieces with more contemporary counterparts. The white table and rattan chairs feel ultra casual, while the symmetrical prints, pleated draperies and dark wood serving tray deliver a perfect hint of refinement.
