Turning Point – Dining Room

“Transitional with a modern twist” is how Tina Krokus describes the dining room makeover. More streamlined side chairs replaced bulkier versions, but the table and sideboard remained. New French doors, a game changer, swing open for fresh air and views. Drapery panels were replaced with simple blinds that blend with adjacent rooms. George, the homeowners’ beloved 15-year-old West Highland White Terrier, relaxes in the light-filled room. Popular in his heyday as a doggie model for print ads, “somehow he always ends up in photos,” Tina Krokus muses.
