HGTV Smart Home 2014 Dining Room: An Explosion of Color

When you step into the dining room "there is a beautiful explosion of color," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. While red increases appetite, the antique hue "adds contrast and breaks up the white throughout."

While the dining room can be used for occasional dinner parties, it primarily functions as a home office. "We love that it's not a wasted space and can be used all of the time," says interior designer Linda Woodrum.

Stylish Buffet Storage

The buffet offers stylish storage for dinnerware and office supplies. Sleek glass cabinet doors with decorative detail and a black finish make an elegant statement.
