Spring Lake-Dining Room

New window seats add seating and storage to the space. We added thick new moldings for architectural interest; dark hardwood floors provide additional warmth. The vintage chandelier draws color from the nearby ocean and adds a spark of color and interest.

Solid wood Parsons dining table and the Wishbone chairs provide an interesting mix of geometric shapes, styles and textures. The sisal rug grounds the area and adds another natural element.

Window seats were added to create much-needed additional seating and extra storage space.

The window seat is the length of the wall, about 10' x 18". The drawers open for extra storage.

Flooring, table and blinds are luscious! Would love information about all 3 as I'm in the process of doing those 3 things in my home. Thanks for any help you can give.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: Rich believes that in a successful room, no one piece sticks out. Case in point: the successful mix of styles and textures in the dining room. She used the same fabric and color palette from the rest of the first floor. A rich mix of textures and styles includes a vintage Moroccan-style glass chandelier that her client found, a solid wood parson's dining table, Danish Wishbone Chairs with woven seats, a sisal rug and a potted plant.Storage was also a priority. "We created much-needed storage space as well as seating with this dining room window seat," says Rich.
Choosing bulbs. By mid-October it's advised to purchase bulbs that are not prechilled. If you're starting in September or early October, purchase the best-quality prechilled (prepared) bulbs you can find that are large and blemish free. Make sure they're firm and free of mold. Storing bulbs before potting. Handle bulbs carefully at all times. They should not be dropped or subjected to extremely high or low temperatures. While it is preferable to pot newly purchased bulbs right away (especially prechilled bulbs), bare bulbs can be stored for several weeks in cool, damp sand until you are ready to force them. Keep the bulbs in a spot with temperatures between 45 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperatures above 63 degrees should be avoided at all times before planting, so depending on your climate and time of year, refrigerator storage may be the best way to go. Place the bulbs in a mesh or paper bag with holes for ventilation. You can store them in a vegetable or crisper drawer in your refrigerator, but don't store them in the same drawer as ripening fruit or vegetables, which give off ethylene gas that can harm the bulbs. Check them periodically to make sure they aren't molding or drying out. Warning: Many bulbs, including hyacinth, are poisonous, so the refrigerator storage method is not recommended for households with young children. Also, hyacinths contain oxalic acid, which can cause skin irritation for some people. Before planting, be sure to thoroughly wet the bulbs to reduce the effect of the oxalic acid, and wear gloves for protection.

Hyancinth The water method. Use forcing glasses, containers or vases that will hold the bulbs just above the water and allow room for root growth below. Pick vases that won't tip over when the large flowers bloom. Place a bulb in your vessel and add water until it just reaches the bottom of the bulb. Change the water once or twice a week by tipping the liquid out and replacing it with fresh, lukewarm water. Put the bulbs in a place that's cool (40 to 55 degrees) and dark until the roots develop and leaves begin to sprout. Bulbs that were prechilled will show growth in roughly three to four weeks, whereas regular bulbs take eight to 16 weeks. Note: The temperature during this rooting period is critical: 40 to 48 degrees is ideal. You could theoretically root bulbs in your refrigerator if you have a thermometer. Basements and garages often provide the ideal conditions. Once the foliage begins to develop, move the bulbs to a warmer spot (65 degrees). Some growers recommend a sunny north-facing window, while others specify bright light but not direct sun. Turn the vases daily to prevent leaning, and change the water regularly. After about two additional weeks, you should have gorgeous, fragrant flowers that will last another two weeks or so in a cool spot. Once the blooms have browned and died, throw out the bulbs. Water forcing uses every scrap of energy a bulb has to offer, so the bulbs will not rebloom.
