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