BEFORE: The décor and furnishings in this kitchen dining nook have a definite country flavor that lacks universal appeal. Dark blue wallpaper makes the space appear smaller than it really is, and heavy curtains block both the light and the view outside.
AFTER: Country-style furnishings have been replaced with a round glass-top table and chairs more proportionate to the space. Cream-colored walls brighten up this kitchen nook considerably. The rug was removed to reveal hardwood floors, and an updated light fixture replaces the tin candelabra. Removing the window grilles and changing the valances allows light to come in and accentuates the beautiful view. For a pop of color, a vase of red flowers adorns the table.
