This loft-style dining room features an eclectic vibe, blending a rustic farmhouse table with traditional brown leather armchairs at either end. Wicker chairs are positioned on either side of the table, while a vibrant yellow art canvas adds a modern touch. A mini lampshade chandelier finishes the look of the space.
In the kitchen, large windows and French doors with oversized transoms allow plenty of natural light into the kitchen, making the space feel bright and open. The white walls that anchor the space reflect the light, continuing the open design. To add warmth and color, red and white patterns were introduced into the space, creating a classic, space that is light and casual.
“All the trees outside this lakeside home inspired me to choose a leafy color for the kitchen cabinets that paired beautifully with a sky blue oven and hood. The look is a breath of fresh air!” — Kristina Crestin, Kristina Crestin Design, Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA
“Blue is always a crowd-pleaser. This particular shade may be dark and moody, but there are bright undertones, so it’s more exciting than classic navy. Paired with metallic accents, it’s extra dramatic.” — Michelle Thomas, Michelle Thomas Design, Austin, TX
“We get a lot of gray skies in Oregon, and I wanted my dining room to have a sunny-summer-morning feeling all year long. Golden yellow did the trick — even friends who don’t like yellow like this one.” — Hannah Hacker, Adapt Design, Portland, OR
“Playful dog wallpaper kicked off the redo of this bathroom, designed for a young girl. The black-and-white pattern paved the way for a big pop of color on the vanity. Fuchsia is vibrant and hip, and it’s a shade she won’t outgrow.” — Shannon Weller, Tracy Lynn Studio, San Diego, CA
“Here’s a color that’s fun but still a neutral. It’s spa-like when paired with white accents, but you could easily dial it up by adding poppy coral accessories.” — Marika Meyer, Marika Meyer Interiors, Bethesda, MD

However, the designers knocked down several walls, opening up the floor plan and adding functionality and flow. Thanks to the new open floor plan, the kitchen and dining room are seamlessly blended to give the space an elegant, appealing look.
