Nestled within easy reach of the kitchen, the dining space blends salvaged, hand-crafted design with eclectic style.

A wall of prairie grid windows provides bungalow style, while maximizing the amount of natural light coming into the dining room. "In this home, you can turn off all the lights and have plenty of daylight," says project manager Dylan Eastman. He describes the year-round Florida sun as a "perfect thing" when designing this open and airy lakeside retreat.
The showpiece of the dining room is a custom-built light fixture that is made from 36 vintage glass bottles and refurbished wooden studs. LED strips were added to allow more light exposure directly on the table below.
Project manager Dylan Eastman instantly fell in love with the vintage chairs from this 1920's home. "They had this interesting back that had enough character to where I didn't want to get rid of them," he says.
Tabletop design takes inspiration from the home's water views and bungalow vibe. Among these standout features are green plants, blue linen napkins, woven detail, and wooden napkin rings with gold accents.
It was important for items and small details to preserve certain characteristics of a traditional 1920's home. "I found silverware from the same era," explains Dylan. "It's an eight piece set with serving spoons and plate settings for only $60."
