Designed with multi-functionality in mind, the pumpkin-colored dining room triples as a library (after-school homework), a workspace (late-night projects), and a place to dine. Storage in the apartment is minimal, so bookshelves with interiors painted a contrasting shade of eggplant were installed to house books and dinnerware, and introduce an additional vibrant color. "I thought this room would feel more warm and inviting if there was seating beyond the formal dining chairs," says Jennifer, "so I pushed the table against the wall to make room for cozy, comfortable chairs."
