Hide CaptionShow CaptionInterior designer Lee Snijders and design coordinators Summer Baltzer and Charles Burbridge bring New Orleans architecture and design into the room using wooden appliques and wrought-iron accents.
The Solution
The walls are primed and painted a rich, two-tone Merlot color. New Roman shades cover the windows, and a custom suspended wrought-iron light box hides the unattractive fluorescent light. The last project to complete the transformation involves stripping out the shelving in the cabinet underneath the bay window. A faux brick interior, new paint and new barstools create a mini breakfast bar with a stunning view of the backyard.
