Step into the dining room, and you quickly realize it's for so much more than just eating--and there's nothing formal about it. Cozy wing chairs flank a rustic console table. In the front corner, a comfy daybed (a fun Paris find) is ideal for a quick catnap or for reading a good book.
A large, round gate-leg table sits front and center. Surrounded by a collection of rich red-leather chairs, it anchors the perfect entertaining set-up. The chairs are comfortable, and a round table promotes conversation.
Even with the neutral walls, there is no loss for color in the room. A multicolored Herez rug and a vibrant painting add splash to the space.
