A Touch of French Country
The renovated dining room is illuminated with a metal chandelier and staged with bright, comfortable chairs and a dining table set with blue plates and French country accessories and greenery. The new French doors open to the backyard and offer additional natural light.
When they remodeled an older family home with French architectural details, kitchen designers Marvin Daniel and Brian Pilgrim of KDW Home wanted to give it an open and airy look that still felt in keeping with the style of the home. Roman shades in a French provincial fabric added just the Old World accent the updated space required.
The French Country-style family room features windows or French doors on three sides of the space that open up to the wraparound garden and ocean view. The garden is filled with edible plants and show flowers, including cutting beds and climbing roses, citrus trees and lavender bushes, grape vineyards and raised vegetable beds.
French doors were added to create an airy, yet private home office. The walls were painted a medium gray and bright linen window treatments create soft, natural mood. The room is staged with a traditional desk and chair. Topiaries, old books, and a map set the mood for creative exploration.
French Country Dining Room with Updated Table and Chairs
The owner of this house asked for a redesign that is classy and bright with lots of girly touches, so a sleek, white table was added to this space. The traditional chairs at each end of the table were covered with pink fabric to bring in the girly style that the homeowner was looking for, while the other, more traditional chairs were replaced with clear chairs. A classy, elegant chandelier hangs over the dining table for a special touch.

Rustic Chic Living Room With Natural Wood Paneling and Exposed Fireplace
By removing a wall, what was once a small room feels much larger, offering a comfortable flow between the living room and the dining room. In the process of removing the wall, Chip Gaines found the original fireplace and decided to keep it as a unique design element. Original shiplap paneling was revealed and kept as wainscoting around the house, and natural wood cornices were installed around the windows. A large, Art Deco style light fixture illuminates the room, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
