A 1960s light fixture found on eBay (see enlarged image) (www.ebay.com) keeps the dining area of this Venice, California bungalow
from feeling fussy. Wallpaper with a chinoiserie pattern is framed with black molding and hung against a more somber gray
wall. Louis XV reproduction chairs echo the baroque mood, but are upholstered in black faux-ostrich hide for a contemporary
feel. The Burke tulip table adds lightness to the mix.

Year-round Garden Room
This garden room is a Northwest take on the lanai. It's open on two sided and provides flexible options for outdoor living. The architect conceived it as a summer deck that would "float" in a sea of salal, but it was transformed into an all-season outdoor room when he and the owners decided to add a roof, a fireplace, and walls that slide closed in stormy weather.
