HGTV Smart Home 2013: Dining Room Tour
A formal entertaining space infused with mocha and sea-blue hues, the dining room opens out to the back deck, with boundaries defined by sheer linen drapes rather than solid walls.

About the Dining Room:
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," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "That's what the drapes do: All that wonderful fabric creates the feel of an intimate party without losing that open-living concept."
