The design team comes up with a plan that not only gives Wayne the functional dining room he needs, but also the Craftsman-meets-transitional style he likes. First, the room will get a coat of rich, slate-blue paint with camel-colored accents around the top. A new, black chandelier will update the space and replace the old-fashioned one he currently has. A round table and square rug will complement the shape of the room, while a new sideboard will give him a place to serve food and drinks when entertaining. Window seating as well as window treatments will be created to make the most of the interesting bay-shaped window area. Decorative, yet functional elements for the walls will include display shelving for dishes and decorative accents. Here's how the Design on a Dime team creates Wayne's new dining room.
