Craftsman Style

A historic cased opening includes two new custom columns handmade by a local craftsman. The columns frame the inviting view into the dining room from the adjacent living room located off the front door of the home.
From:

Eye-Catching Dining Table

A six-foot round wood table with tongue and groove construction sits center stage in the dining room, surrounded by historic windows that bring lots of natural light inside.
From:

Extra Seating

Two classic-style tufted wingback accent chairs with a nubby gray-blue fabric provide extra seating for conversations and larger dining room gatherings.
From:

Coffered Ceiling

Four perfectly symmetrical squares create the dining room’s new 10-foot high coffered ceiling, which adds architectural interest and gives the space a high-end feel. The space previously had a dropped ceiling that was flat and lacked character.
From:

Lovely Lighting

A polished nickel and eight-light pendant casts a pleasing glow over the dining room table. 
From:

Open and Spacious

The round shape of the table takes up less visual space than a traditional rectangular table to help the dining room feel open and spacious.
From:

Touch of Texture

The dining room’s six rattan and wood dining chairs bring in texture and a touch of casual coastal style to the space.
From:

Contemporary Area Rug

A handmade blue area rug sits under the dining table and over the room’s American White Oak floor. The contemporary area rug with tone-on-tone pattern in viscose yarn that emulates the look and feel of silk is one of the soft textures used to make the space comfortable and cozy.
From:

Balanced Look

The curved lines of the dining room’s round reclaimed wood table provide nice contrast for the symmetrical lines of the coffered ceiling above.
From:

Cement Planter Centerpiece

A blue cement planter with Greek Key design holds greenery to create a lovely centerpiece for the dining room table.
From:

Cozy Drapes

Custom drapery panels with flat black hardware flank the dining room’s historic windows. By doubling the amount of drapery needed, designer Brian Patrick Flynn was able to make the space feel cozy and lived in. 
From:

Creative Sideboard Storage

Three identical four-drawer chests placed side-by-side create the look of a long sideboard, offering storage for dining essentials with space on top for the two navy blue porcelain table lamps with crisp white shades that provide illumination.
From:

Chic Chests

The three contemporary chests feature a wire brush-distressed finish, brass-tone hardware and shallow carved front detailing for a chic look.
From:

Inspiring Design Ideas

A selection of design books with ideas and tips sit on top of the chests, ready to help inspire future home projects.
From:

Top Notch Security

The plug-and-play base station for the home’s top-notch security system with wireless technology sits next to one of the two key chain remotes that control the system, with a panic button included for extra security.
From:

Attention to Detail

The home’s original air return vent covers were powder-coated white and replaced where needed to coordinate with the updated color scheme. The vent covers are a lovely detail that reflect the historic nature of this Craftsman home.
From:

Touch of Softness

The lack of sharp edges with a round reclaimed wood dining table adds softness to this dining room with a bit of a feminine touch, and also encourages conversation between guests while enjoying their meal.
From:

Open and Airy Table Base

The pedestal base of the round reclaimed wood dining table, which has a whitewashed look and contemporary urban style, allows for comfortable seating.
From:

Easy Connection

This look from the dining room into the living room and the home’s adjacent front entry shows the easy connection and good flow between spaces.
From:

Motion Sensor

The home’s security system with wireless technology includes four motion sensors like this one in the dining room that detects motion within 30 feet.
From:

Extra Comfort

Blue and white patterned throw pillows add extra comfort to the dining room’s two wingback chairs.
From:

Distinctive Dining

This look into the dining room shows the impressive view visitors enjoy as they enter the home’s front door and living room.
