In this wood-paneled traditional room, designer Robin LaMonte enhanced existing elements, such as the chandelier, mantel and bookshelves, with greenery.

Add a touch of opulence with fur (or faux fur) ottomans like these. The black leather chairs also nestle close to the fireplace, a feature that strategically heats both the indoor and outdoor spaces. The gray sectional and nesting coffee tables complete the room, designed by Laurel & Wolf Interior Design for a warm transitional sitting area.
In this episode of DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, the focus of the job was to restore the original details while preserving as much of the material as possible in the dining room that is more than 100 years old.

The living room fireplace was also replaced, and fitted with a custom stone mantle.
