What Houzz contributors are saying:
3. Get into the swing. Swinging doors have been successfully used for hundreds of years to provide passage between dining rooms and kitchens or butler’s pantries when hands are full of food or dishes. Here, a peekaboo window allows users to see who is behind the door before opening it. The simple door design in a neutral color blends well with the creamy white of the slipcovers and light neutral drapes. This neutral backdrop allows the red accents in the wallcovering and slipcovers to pop.
Here’s a lovely example of how a door with a porthole window can add style to the dining room.
4. A matchy-matchy look. There is something slightly unnerving when everything matches. Perhaps it’s the lack of soul or just the lack of confidence shown.Why break this habit? There is a charming insouciance when the carpet doesn’t match the drapes — or, in this case, when the slipcovers don’t match the wallpaper. This dining room exudes a casual, welcoming air.
