Contemporary Dining Room With Rustic Chic Chandelier
A dramatic 51-inch-high Empire-style light fixture fashioned from wrought iron and washed wood is the focal point in this formal dining room. Semi-sheer linen drapes can be pulled around to create privacy in the dining room from the kitchen and living room, transforming the space into a cabana-like retreat.
A streamlined wood fireplace with flat screen TV serves as the focal point for the sitting area. A glass coffee table allows the tropical blue hues throughout the space to stand out against the natural wood grain of the fireplace and hearth.
The navy walls in this transitional living space highlight the unique shape of the leather Restoration Hardware chair and curved design of the chest of drawers. The lack of pattern and minimal decor allow the bold wall color to make a statement without overwhelming the space.
