Southern Comfort: The design contains a convenient open living area anchored with comfortable upholstered pieces and light sisal rugs, rather than the Oriental carpets topped with heavy, wood-framed settees that are more often associated with strict Mediterranean Revival style. A sisal rug by Stark Carpet anchors a coffee table from A. Tyner Antiques and tight-back upholstered sofas from South of Market, both in Atlanta. The walls are painted in Benjamin Moore’s China White.
or something like this in the dining room? obviously you don't have a window like that but you could have a backrest to the bench and hang photos, etc above the bench... plus look at all the storage on each side. awesome.
When deciding where to hang images in your home, consider the wall space available and the arrangement of the room. "Use small pieces between windows and doors," Crisolo says. "If small items are in a space too large, the pieces look lost. With larger pieces, allow room for people to step back and admire the work."
