Ultimately, the small space didn’t keep Gladys from making her dining room into something special. All she needed was the right statement pieces. The hand chairs were perfect, she says, because they added more than a funky look to the space. “Not only are they eccentric-looking, they add texture to the room, along with the functionality of extra seating for guests.” The chairs contribute to the classic black and white color palette of the space, with the nails provide a striking pop of red that accents the entire room.
“We just had fun in here, we have the mossy green walls and we brought in orange for the accent.

The pool house kitchen often serves as a wet bar and food prep station for the family's pool parties, so the small galley kitchen has been decked out in Ann Sacks tile and custom shelves.
