The homeowners’s dining table stays and bulky old chairs are replaced with more streamlined models to make the room look less crowded. The new, contemporary ceiling fan is also less bulky and more stylish. Homeowner Eric and his son Kyle used leftover materials from their molding project to make the centerpiece planter for the dining table. By using the same molding as the rest of the space, the centerpiece ties both the living and the dining room together.

Tip: It's a huge myth that beige is boring. It's not. It all depends on how you use it, the tone of the beige and what else is complementing the color.
