Contemporary Regal Dining Room

An early-19th-century portrait by the French artist Pigalle overlooks this table.

Interior designer Scott Yetman believes that every room should have black in it, and there isn't a room without it in the Knowlton, Quebec holiday home he shares with his partner Jean Michel Lavoie. In the dining room, a contemporary light fixture combines with a Regency-style table and retro white chairs upholstered with black leather and blue gingham fabric. A mix of modern and traditional keeps the look current.
