“We opted for a durable, solid wood dining table from Crate & Barrel for this casual eat-in kitchen nook. It’s perfect for family meals and works equally well for homework or crafts,” says the designer of this project. When matching table and chairs, she says, “always consider the leg finish of your dining chairs: They should be in the same tone family as your dining table. A few shades lighter or darker is fine, as long as the underlying hue is similar.”
A large accordion door with turquoise door frame adds a touch of color and opens this sitting room out to the backyard patio. Gorgeous wood chairs create stylish seating under a mushroom pendant light and exposed ceiling beams.
Concrete strips separated by stripes of small natural rock create a textured look to the wrap around patio bordering this modern home. The design descends featuring patio areas after each set of steps. A small circular table and warm wood chairs create an outdoor dining space.
Coastal wood chairs with bright blue seat cushions are the perfect brightening element to surround the dark dining table. A centerpiece of white flowers adds natural texture to soften the look and add a personal touch. The open connection to the kitchen gives a spacious look to the room.
A large, bright chandelier features long, decorative streams hanging over the double story foyer visible from the upstairs hallway. Dark hardwood flooring, cable stair walls and modern wood chair create a simple and sharp design for the hall. Bold all art draws the eye and pops in the light of the bright foyer.
Bold art prints pop against the white walls of this modern sitting space. The simple design allows the eyes to be drawn first to the art rather than the room. A black leather bench sits below the hung artwork nearing a wood accent wall with red lit squares displayed. A minimalist, three-footed wood chair sits alone in the open floor space.
French doors on either side of the room open up this beautiful dining space into the sunny outdoors. A long black table is lined with contemporary wood chairs. Built in window benches are decorated with an array of colorful throw pillows.
The cherry red bed frame stands out against the white walls and black and white bed linens in this bedroom. A black and white striped rug compliments the bed linens. A simple wood chair is finished with a fish scale patterned throw pillow. White roman shades provide natural light control.
A pergola provides partial shade over a row of wood lounge chairs sitting poolside in this bright backyard. Vase-like end tables separate the chairs and add a functional decorative touch to the patio. Vivid grass and healthy plant life create a bright frame around the water.
A watercolor canvas gives soft decoration to the pale blue wall color. Vintage light fixtures frame the painting adding a warm glow to the cool toned design. A wood table is set up as the working desk with space for a laptop, books and personal decorative touches. A white chair is upholstered at the seat with a soft floral fabric while the back opening displays a gray plaid pattern.
A wavy track supports the pendant lights hanging over the polished wood modern dining table. Sunlight from the large windows streams in to highlight the brightness of the design. Wood chairs with brown woven seats and backs surround the table and face the gorgeous lake view.
The beautiful high ceilings of this rustic dining area create a gorgeously spacious feel for the design. A wood paneled ceiling, decorative marble flooring and natural rock walls combine for a great textural surrounding. An antler chandelier provides lighting above a large, natural wood dining table and red wood chairs.
The friendly and inviting feel of this southern colonial home is seamlessly carried into the kitchen. The rich umber of the ceiling beams, walnut island top, and quarter sawn oak floors combine with details like the bronze lanterns and bridge faucet to create a classic cooking and gathering space that is at once familiar and unique.
