Sunken Seating Area
A pop of natural red offsets paler tones.
Built-in cabinets topped by Tuscan columns separate — but don't visually close off — the kitchen and dining room from the great room in this weekend home. Soft green chenille armchairs enlivened by crisp white piping create cosy seating and the striped throw pillows are a pale palette pulled from the floral rug. A cluster of brass candlesticks and a crimson-leafed maple branch clipped from outside are simple decor touches that lend impact.
