Modern mix L.A. dining room

Modern mix L.A. dining room: Stained tile floors + shell chandelier
The nice colors and materials in Claire Forlani's dining room, designed by Estee Stanley. The Los Angeles house was originally outfitted with terra-cotta tile floors, but the burnt-orange color didn't complement the new decor, so Stanley stained the tiles darker with a special glaze treatment. The delicate shell chandelier adds a feminine touch. Photo by Melanie Acevedo, Domino, October 2006.
