This windowed dining alcove brings a lot of visual interest to a small space. The reclaimed wood table is surrounded by rattan chairs in neutral tones on the sides. At the head and foot of the table are slipper chairs with green and white patterned backs and white leather seats, with wooden legs and nailhead trim. The most eye-catching element is a pair of artistic metal chandeliers on chains.

A blend of contemporary and traditional pieces come together to create a welcoming dining space. The home's architectural features like the arched alcove and French door lend a cottage-style vibe to the space while the upholstered chairs and elegant light fixture give it a touch of formality.
"Existing in this condo was this strange alcove adjacent to the dining room," said designer Debbie Perez. "Knowing our clients love eclectic, reclaimed and funky things, we designed a custom dry bar to look like it was made from salvaged metal and old drawer pulls."

Contrasting bright white molding and light green beadboard walls bring a touch of coastal flair to this traditional sitting area and adjacent kitchen.

Tucked behind the foyer of a meticulously modified Mediterranean home, this elegant powder room is just what the client asked for – a “pretty little jewel box” to help visitors feel pampered. The 24-square foot space was carved out of an inefficient pass-through once connecting the kitchen and dining room. The designer created an alcove to accommodate the sink area and a vanity cabinet. The jewels include faceted crystal cabinet knobs and a sparkly chandelier for just the right amount of bling.
