Dining on Design
A sophisticated, modern dining room is perfect for this Libra and Capricorn pair.
Hide CaptionShow CaptionTim and his partner, Chris, live on the Upper West Side neighborhood of New York City. As a Libra, Chris loves balance and flow in a room, but he's taken over the space with his own look. Capricorn Tim is ready to get rid of the ceiling fan and window treatment, plus he wants more influence in the design.
Christopher, a Libra, is an advertising man who knows less is more in words and in design. His partner Tim, a Capricorn, is a schoolteacher who feels everything is in the details. They've tried repeatedly to make improvements in their dining room, but claim it's impossible for them to be on the same page. Christopher loves modern design and sleek hard lines, which he says is due to his Swedish heritage, but Tim dreams of a softer, lighter look and a dining room without a ceiling fan. The What's Your Sign? Design team's solution to this dining room debate is a Lucite and glass dining set, sapphire blue walls with a gold ceiling and a floating buffet.
