Now this is gorgeous interior design. I love the black and white theme and I've never seen a dining room with a couch. I can't picture myself putting a couch/secondary seating area in my dining room but i guess it works here.
For my herb garden. This one doesn't show you how to do it but looks like a good project to start! It's also great for a tiny patio or yard. Looks like the pots might be too small though. so, build frame bigger according to pot size preferred.
