Classics are classics for a reason. In Cindy Crawford's dining room, a beloved-for-centuries color scheme looks just as stylish as the day it was conceived. The supermodel's space champions a white, vaulted ceiling with dark, intricate wood walls. 

Cindy's dining room features a deeply colored wooden dining table and white curtains against the winning wall and ceiling combination. Here, the ground walls and fifth walls work together to give the space depth and a cozy, intimate feel.

'What stands out to me most in Cindy Crawford's dining room is how warm and full of life it feels,' says NYC-based interior designer Kathy Kuo of Cindy's cozy dining room. She continues, 'In this carefully designed space, the dark wall color makes the room feel cozy, and the white ceiling with gorgeous exposed beams balances out the darker hue and keeps the room from feeling at all subterranean. The vibe is very chic-secret-clubhouse!'

Experts further agree that the look of the model's dining toom is timeless. Soledad Alzaga, San Francisco-based interior designer states: 'In Cindy Crawford's traditional dining room, the juxtaposition of dark walls with white ceilings continues to be on-trend for several reasons. The combination creates contrast that adds depth and dimension to a room, drawing the eye upward and making the space feel more expansive.'

San Francisco-based Interior designer Soledad Alzaga has worked on designs projects in San Francisco, Sonoma, Atherton, New York, Martha's Vineyard, Los Angeles, Mexico and Argentina.

She continues, 'Dark painted walls add a sense of coziness and intimacy, making the room feel inviting and comfortable. The white ceiling balances out the darkness of the walls, preventing the room from feeling too closed-in or overwhelming. Overall, this look works because it offers a bold and balanced aesthetic that can add drama and sophistication to any space, while still maintaining a sense of openness and airiness.' All of these benefits help the look to stand the tests of time.
