Paneled walls with a weathered finish give this room a refined feeling. Decorative artists added a mural of native Virginia songbirds. "It's like a slightly folksy version of formal scenic wallpaper," says Mitchell. An oval pedestal table centers the space, surrounded by comfortable chairs. A striking landscape hangs over the sideboard. "The whole room is like a painting, so I chose only one piece of art to make a big impact," Mitchell says. "A dining room is about the chairs, the walls, and the chandelier."
