What Houzz contributors are saying:
One way to liven up a darker panel is to choose one with a print — preferably one that incorporates a lighter color. At a glance, the panel contrasts against white walls, but upon closer inspection the print brings pattern and interest to the room.
Lots of time is also spent in the breakfast area, where the children do their homework. Hallberg had the clients' existing chairs reupholstered and had a custom table top made for the pedestal base. The banquette on the right was covered in ultrasuede, which stands up well to wear and tear. The chandelier combines old-world iron, beads and some fun deco waves appropriate to a 1929 home.
