Create a relaxed dining room that blends classic details with a cool island flair.
What Makes It Work
Because this dining room is in an island retreat in the Bahamas, the designer/homeowner chose to surround the table with slip-covered chairs, introducing a cool, casual note. Interesting contrasts fill the bookshelves, including silver serving pieces paired with seashells. Fine china dresses up the table, but a sea grass rug underscores everything with simple texture and balances out the formality.
