Hide CaptionShow CaptionTheir plan is to create a sophisticated room that the family will want to use daily.
After looking through the three designs, the homeowners decide to work with Francie Prince and Mark Mueller. A new distressed dining table is surrounded by chairs in a mix of styles and fabrics. Two chandeliers in the same design motif add lighting to the space, and silk plaid fabric covers the windows and helps soften the room. The couple wanted to do something interesting with the ceiling, so Prince and Mueller came up with a unique idea. Wood beams, which have been painstakingly hand-carved and hand-distressed by a local artisan, are added to the ceiling. In the alcove, they design a custom high-low table with host and hostess chairs for the couple.
