Fashion Forward Dining Nook



Mia Malcolm is designing a cozy dining nook that centers around a combination of upcycled pillows gathered from various rooms in the house. Her client prefers fun, feminine patterns and colors. With this in mind, Mia selects a leopard print upholstery for the seat cushions then adds patterned pillows to the mix. With fresh flowers growing right outside the kitchen door, she has plenty of colorful options to tablescape the dining table. Watch this episode to discover Mia’s tips for mixing colors and patterns!
