A unique bamboo coffee table is actually made from an old pigeon cage. A glass top was added, along with large caster wheels so it's also easy to move around. "The table adds great texture, and it's also a conversation piece," says Linda.
Touch of Aqua
She said her goal was to create a multi-functional room, easily adapted for a variety of uses. A set of six large wicker chairs are fitted with fat, comfortable paisley cushions. Six individual chairs, instead of a large sofa-and-loveseat combo, lend much more flexibility to the room. "It's all about versatility," says Woodrum. "The chairs are easy to move. You can set it up as a social area, or line the seating up in rows to create a media room for watching TV. You can also just remove all the furnishings, turn up the music and dance."
For the HGTV Dream Home kitchen, interior designer Linda Woodrum created a sleek modern space accented with rustic art. It's a well-defined space, yet very open to the living and dining areas of the second-floor great room.
"It's clean, crisp and definitely part of the great room," says Woodrum.
All About the View
As in every room facing the water, the dining area is all about the view. An eight-person dining table is centered on French doors looking out on the second floor patio and the Florida Bay beyond. High-backed chairs are upholstered in an elegant, yet casual, red coral fabric matching the sofa and chairs in the adjoining great room.
