While this Mexican restaurant's dining room feels rustic and aged, in truth it was created new in just 90 days. The authentic and homey environment is derived from keen attention to detail, such as the traditional wood whisks hanging from the ceiling. Adding old to new, existing tables in the prior restaurant space were repurposed, cut up and reformed into both intimate and communal tables.
The spindle posts of this beautiful white bed pop against the creamy taupe walls, while indigo accents complete the Southern coastal palette. Also charming: a small grouping of brown glass bottles on a round wood side table.
If you can't afford a new farmhouse-style table, the same look can be achieved by mixing salvaged pieces to create your own table. Find an old tabletop, then add old or new spindle legs. If you paint the table and other outdoor furniture all white, it creates a modern and sleek look, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta.
Two midcentury modern style accent chairs covered in a linen fabric provide some of the stylish seating in this well-detailed library. The accent chairs have padded slope arms and tall spindle legs with a semi-attached back cushion. A pedestal side table offers a spot to rest a book or drink.
