Some people equate "traditional" with "matching" and "boring" -- but it doesn't have to be the case. This unexpectedly diverse dining area is classy but diverse enough in design to make it a stand-out eating area. An upholstered crushed velvet bench breaks up an expanse of wainscoting, and mimics ever so slightly the curves in the other upholstered chairs. Dark accents, from the table and chair legs, repeat in the frames and in the outlines on the mirror. Robin's-egg blue on the walls as well as the pattern chairs supplies a complement to the rich gray of the bench.
