Chic Dining Room

Refinished chairs, a trestle-style dining table and a dramatic-yet-affordable overhead light give this dining room real style.

Stacey Smithers, the H&H Style Editor who helped with this redesign, suggested the deep plum transitional wall as an unexpected touch. For a similar look, try Benjamin Moore's Nightfall (CC-38).
