Jennifer and Michael Green didn't know where to begin to make their personal styles work together in their drab dining room. They approached designer Tobi Fairley to help them reach a style compromise in time for holiday entertaining.
Knowing she had to mesh the Greens' his-and-hers styles into one cohesive look, Tobi replaced the room's boring paint palette, mismatched furniture, small ho-hum rug, and ornate chandelier with a vibrant color scheme, timeless and cohesive furniture, and a lively mix of accessories.

Knowing how much Michael loved the room's architecture, Tobi chose to enhance it with a classic chocolate brown color on the walls and crisp white to accentuate the existing millwork. She also added strips of molding above the chair rail to provide more architectural detail.
