Exotic Dining Room
These homeowners have a dining room disguised as a playroom. The Design on a Dime team transforms it back into a formal dining room that can still function as an open space to play.

Although this room is the dining room, the homeowners use it mostly as a play area. Drums, toys and a lack of a dining table define this space. The room has good bones and architectural details. Design coordinator Kahi Lee is happy to see the homeowners are not afraid of bold colors; they do like jewel tones and shiny things that reflect light. What they would like is to have a proper dining room where they can eat together as a family and entertain guests.
