Natural wood. Natural wood, whether in a mirror frame, rustic tabletop or chair, helps lighten up dark walls while also emphasizing their richness. You can’t go wrong with a driftwood or barn wood mirror, a farmhouse table or bentwood chairs.
A built-in banquette is flanked by tall glass cabinets for storing dishes and glassware, while a trio of chairs provides more seating on the other side of the table. A large contemporary art piece brings in a splash of color and rounds out the space.
