Neutral tones create a sophisticated and calm atmosphere in this dining room. The rectangle dining table is surrounded with light wood chairs featuring cream cushion upholstery and a nailhead trim finish. A white area rug and white molding brighten the room and provide a break in the beige and wood finishes. Antique style garden tools mounted as wall art and a heavy neutral meal chandelier highlight the farmhouse influence in the design.

Pops of red keep this neutral contemporary home office far from ho-hum. A red wire chandelier quirkily lights the space with the help of a red table lamp. On the built-in shelf along the back wall, red accessories pick up the red flowers in the large artwork.
Craig Reynolds Landscape Architecture replaces the interior finish, giving the pool a more natural hue of blue.
