In this 180-square-foot kitchen, Hamilton-Gray Design replaced a built-in breakfast nook with a dining table for two, built around the back and side of the island. Fitting the table-height piece around the counter-height island makes the most of the available space and allows each surface to be at the right height for its designated purpose.

To make entertaining easy, this home has a wet bar with two mini fridges, a prep sink and lots of cabinets space for storing glassware and accessories. The white marble countertop is an elegant pairing with the mahogany cabinets.

A bachelor's request for a dark and dramatic dining room that is streamlined yet traditional and marries masculine and feminine results in this ode-to-blue space with an East Coast aesthetic.

A wall of windows floods this casual dining room with tons of natural light. Traditional black Windsor dining chairs surround a rectangular wood table that is grounded by a pale yellow rug, while a dark wood built-in hutch offers storage space for dishes and glassware.
Like red plates, thanks to the proliferation of Christmas's traditional colors, vintage green dishware isn't difficult to find. Ditto for the glassware: the two patterns shown here are 'Moon and Stars' (bottom right) and 'Park Lane' by Colony Glass (upper left) and they're both available in a variety of other pretty hues, as well.
