"Entertaining is what Palm Beach is all about," says designer Gary McBournie. Everything white, including a sideboard from Lars Bolander and vintage Chinese Chippendale chairs, makes a crisp contrast to custom-glazed duck-egg-blue walls. Though new, the Dennis & Leen chandelier was found in a Palm Beach antiques shop: "It was probably too large for someone's house. But here, it fills that void at the center of the room and gives it character." Photo by James Merrell, House Beautiful, Dec. 2008.

This was my nana's dining table. My brother took care of it after she died, but he decided he wanted a different table so I brought it down to Canberra. It is now a (very large) hall table in my living room. I love it, and I am always reminded of family Christmas dinners at this table.
