Kiawah Family HomeBeach Style Living Room, Charleston
To take advantage of the view, the designer offset the dining table to the right to enable a pair of spool chairs and ottomans on the left. The trestle table can receive two-24" leaves and the table is pulled to the center of the room for holiday meals. With the business of the room and its variety of uses, tone on tones of grey and blue keep the room calm and sophisticated.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
If bold color under oot is not your thing, then go for texture. A textured rug can add just as much dimension to a room as a bold color can. Notice that a similar texture to this rug is repeated on the ceiling.
If you have a particularly stunning shell, display it on a sideboard. Its natural beauty is unlike that of any man-made art, and it has an intrinsic understated elegance.Margaret Donaldson Interiors found this authentic fossil shell at a showroom at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center.
An offset dining table opposite a pair of spool chairs and ottomans keeps the view to the water open, while a fossil shell statement piece on the console roots the space in coastal style."Tone on tones of gray and blue keep the room calm and sophisticated enough for a casual summer meal or a Thanksgiving dinner," Donaldson says.
