It's only fitting that a Hollywood home have a theater for screening films. Velvet curtains, ornate sconces and sixteen seats give the space a hint of glamour that feels true to the Art Deco time period.
This outdoor dining room has treehouse charm, looking out into the forest surrounding Minnesota's Lake Minnetonka. Metal louvers and automated screens keep the space well protected from weather and bugs.
Giving the dining room a private, intimate feel, a screen separates it from the front door and hall. A built-in sideboard makes a helpful buffet space in the back and a delicate lantern adds to the meditative serenity of the design.
Originally, this dining room was blocked off from views of the lake by a wall with only two tiny windows. Reworking of the home's design opened up the dining room to a screened porch on one side and a new, improved, more scenic sunroom on the other. Let there be light and lake!
A few walls and doors were reconfigured to create an enclosed media room in the basement. An open basement plan was slightly reconfigured with the help of an engineer, and the final product is a cozy media room with seating for 12.
