A large-scale, beaded wood chandelier by Regina Andrew draws the eye to the wide windows in this lovely breakfast space, emphasizing the serene outdoor view.

Houseplants lend to the natural element while a green glass bedside lamp helps illuminate the space and tie in the color scheme. A natural jute throw rug anchors the entire area.
A designer's work is never actually done. For most designers there is always a little something extra that could be done to take our designs to the next level. However, the only thing I could find to do in the Blehm's master sitting area was to adjust the lampshade because the room and its views were flawlessly picturesque. In this space, Angela used one of my favorite hospitality-inspired design tricks. She concealed the drapery hardware behind the crown moulding, thereby creating a clean and elevated look. The moulding becomes the cornice and the pleated linen drapery opens to expose the outdoors like a movie screen. How's that for drama?! My number one pick in this image is the upholstered bench. It manages to be retro, mod, and current all at the same time. Angela's is fearless in her use of white furniture and rugs throughout the family home. She's proof that it can be done, not to mention, done with her three young children and pets!
