New England style. This photo of a dining room in a historic sea captain’s house on Massachusetts’ Cape Cod looks like it could’ve been shot in a well-curated Ye Olde Curiosities Shoppe. That means it feels full of meaningful family hand-me-downs and classic Yankee style. A toasty fireplace, tongue-and-groove paneling and a coffered ceiling provide a great base, while antiques, artwork and tableware complete the scene.
You Have: Berry BranchesProject: Adorn a chandelier. Give your dining room light fixture a new lease on life by artfully draping it with a few bright red berry branches or bittersweet vines. Just beware of berries falling into the food: Take the branches or vines down when berries start to drop, or use faux plants instead.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Dining room. So I know this looks different because it is rather Victorian but I wanted to include it because I have a lot of eclectic stuff I want to display. I have a lot of art and antiques and many of them are from the Victorian era and I'm very fond of them. So this gives you an idea of how things will look after I start putting out stuff to display. It's going to look kind of like an old lady got at it... After Victorian, the second and third most common genres I've got objects from are mid-century modern and orientalism.
