Dining Room From HGTV Smart Home 2013
Open to the kitchen, great room and back deck, the dining area transforms to a cozy cocoon when linen drapes are drawn. Formal furnishings in a dark finish elevate the design, while a graphic-print area rug grounds the space and lends a contemporary element.
Most of us have lost our dining rooms, which is fine, but sometimes you want that formal, intimate space. That's what the drapes do: All that wonderful fabric creates the feel of an intimate party without losing that open-living concept.Interior Designer Linda Woodrum
