The dining room's conversation piece, a 4-foot-high triptych, makes subtle reference to Florida’s horse-racing heritage and also serves to cleverly conceal a series of switch-plates that control lighting in the front of house.

Something had to be really bold and really catch your eye because that wall is the farthest distance away from the front entrance. It had to have a lot of strength, and the horse was perfect. That print is so graphic. You really notice it.
The dining room story begins with the massive 9-foot-long table crafted by carpenter David Brown. He fashioned the tabletop from antique heart-pine flooring, old cedar fence posts standing in as table legs. Table-height wicker chairs lend an air of elegant informality, while slipcovered host and hostess chairs are set on wheels to accommodate impromptu furniture rearrangement. A carefully edited collection of tabletop adornments echoes the semi-tropical locale.
