Dining Room in Tudor Home Blends Modern Colors with the Home's Traditional Style
A light, yellow color and the new, open concept floor plan helped to modernize the dining room of this historic home, but the exposed beams and traditional furniture in the space maintain the integrity of the home's Tudor design. This elegant blend is highlighted by the natural light that pours into the home from the large French doors at the back of the space.
The drama in this keeping room comes from the sum of the parts. Together the Gothic-inspired frames on the bookshelves, medieval-style chandelier and details on the chair backs create intrigue. The dark mantel contrasts against the bright-white wall and anchors the space.
Tudor Family Room Blends Old World and New World Style
The exposed beams and pale yellow wall color extends into the family room that rests just off the dining room, connected by an open archway. Leather sofas, wood furniture and an Oriental rug help to highlight the home's traditional style, while the space is lightened by the natural light that enters the space through the double windows.
Covered Patio Area Offers Spot for Outdoor Dining, Entertainment
A round dining table offers space for additional guests and takes advantage of a covered area of the patio -- a perfect dining spot, even in the event of rain. A large lantern-style pendant light fits with the era of the home and matches sconce lighting near the exterior doors.
Neutral tones are used throughout this elegant, Tudor-style dining room. Fabric-covered chairs in muted patterns surround an oval table, while textured curtains and a lantern-like chandelier complete the look.
