The dining table from Ralph Lauren Home "has a French '50s feel" while the light fixture, from a company called Lumiere Inc., reminds Nate of a classic French lantern. Once again, Gentile Designs embellishes the seats of the dining chairs with Colette and Lee's monogram and, in a nod to local pride, paints the dining room walls with camellias, Alabama's state flower. "It's a great way to define a space," Nate says, "especially when rooms open onto one another."
It's these kinds of playful touches—along with framed photos of Lee flipping pancakes and Colette snuggling with her niece—that give the space its personal pitch.
