This elegant seaside dining room is surprisingly suited to the family’s six young children. A hardy trestle table stands up to messy art projects and spaghetti spills. The gleaming white floors were achieved by painting oak floors with stark white polyurethane overlay―the same stuff used on pro basketball courts. Soft damask walls, silk blue drapes, and a crystal chandelier keep the room looking modern, sophisticated, and glamorous.
Location: Pacific Palisades, Calif.
