Sophisticated Country Dining Area

This lovely dining room is very functional and cleverly designed. Although this dining room is country style, one may also find that this dining area is a fusion of styles. The wooden dining table and benches looks so natural and yet so chic with a bit of leather upholstery. The elegant walls and ceiling looks contemporary with the framed arts neatly placed to add interest and beauty. The wall and ceiling paint colors and the functional fireplace also gives off a warm and comfy feel to this dining area. The charming candleholders and other decors and trinkets on the table and on the mantlepiece and above the small cabinet are delightful home treasures. The expansive rug, window treatment and the pendant lamp completes the setting to give this dining area a nice sophisticated country look and feel.

Designer: Tom Scheerer

What a lovely long Porch

I love this lovely long porch. I am actually into outdoor spaces these days and I find this porch is such a sight to behold. From its white posts to the table, to the view of the garden and the old carriage house, to the beautiful table setting, I really really love it. The place looks so peaceful yet cheery, calm yet blissful. A wonderful porch like this is perfect for al fresco dining among family and friends. It can also be a place for good times and good conversations. It can even be a place of relaxation for lazy afternoons. The expansive lawn/garden adds to the beauty of the place and can be a good area for summer picnics and get-together. Oh, and the outdoor table and dining chairs gives this porch a really cozy and homely ambiance.

This porch is from Candice Bergen’s East Hampton Country House featured in Architectural Digest.
