These doors provide a farmhouse vernacular detail on the bottom, and the glass on top allows the away room to share natural light with the dining room. When necessary, they can close off the away room, but they can be opened to make both spaces feel larger.Kauffman Tharp scored the candle lanterns from Vagabond Vintage and gave them a makeover that began with "a paint wash that looks like zinc," she says. "We tied them with thick, rough manila rope to plumbing pipe that spans between the ceiling beams (I did a bronze paint wash on the pipes to match the curtain rods). Battery-operated pillar candles from Restoration Hardware have built-in timers."Tip: "Hang natural linen draperies high and wide at the windows to add verticality to the space, while blocking none of the natural light," Tharp advises.
