A room that’s a magnet for stains and spilling? The dining room. For this space, Graciela brought in a banquette that’s made out of a lizard-embossed vinyl. “Vinyl wipes down well, comes in a million colors and textures, and is very affordable,” she says. “We use this material a lot on dining and kitchen furniture.” To make this room more kid-friendly, we’d go for a darker rug for hiding dirt.
