Dramatic Dining Room

The ceiling molding pattern was inspired by Karen's past work in theater and set design. "Only later did I realize why it was so familiar," she says. "The design is in almost every theater I've ever been in!" She chose the wood and leather low-back chairs to add some masculinity to the room.
