Dining with Style

Designer Emily Butler transforms a boring dining room into a stylish dining area with panache.

  • Practical and Attractive

    The amber-glass chandelier is the star of this dining room and is functional as well as eye-catching. Replacing the plain, white back door with a striking, dark Mahogany one adds character.

  • Peeking Around the Corner

    The wainscoting detail extends from the dining room into the kitchen for a cohesive look.

  • All in the Details

    The interior of the built-in bookcase was painted blue which made it pop.

  • Colorless and Uninspiring

    Overusing white can make the room virtually disappear. Not having many architectural details in the space adds to the monotony.

  • Blank Slate

    Neutral furnishings and accessories are uninteresting. This space needed some color to add excitement and personality.
