Neutral yet rich colors and simple patterns boost the effortlessly elegant and comfortable design aesthetic in this dining space. Both pattern and profile boost the traditional feel of the chairs, and lend a counterpoint to the rich dark shade of the window treatments. Rich wood tones on cabinets, floors, and chair legs also maintain a formal feel. For a touch of the eclectic, the light fixture is a DIY solution -- an upside-down laundry basket draped with linen and hung with rope. The result? A reminder that statement-making decor is not always the most expensive, high-end product.
