Refined Modern Dining Room

Crystal, crackers tied with Christmas ornaments and magnolia-leaf floral centerpieces add sparkle to an already polished space.

Luxurious silk taffeta drapes balance an off-centre window in designer Colleen McGill's dining room. An oversized paper lantern and a seagrass rug are simple counterpoints to the room's more formal elements.

See more photos in our Christmas decorations gallery. Enjoy more shots of McGill's space, also, or view her entire house in our November 2008 issue.
