Formal and clean dining room
The French chandelier and the dark wood of the table give this dining room a heightened sense of splendor. The color from the upholstered cushions on the chairs is carried through the accented walls, tying this room together with a formal and clean look throughout.
Dining room with a modern flair
A minimalist space requires a minimalist design to provide the right balance. Though this space isn’t tiny, it does provide lots of design challenges. The homeowners chose a simple table with simple chairs to create the perfect place for any meal. To further reduce the space needs, the homeowners put a shelf on the far wall to keep everyday items within easy reach.
A distressed pine table feels right at home in this modern take on a farmhouse dining room. Floral chairs emphasize the colors in the valance and curtains, and a large centerpiece enhances the room's appeal. An accent rug continues the country feel against the pine-stained floor.
Contemporary dining room
This dining room provides a large space for entertaining any party or for seating up to eight people. The warm earth tones, travertine floor and natural stone wall make this a serene spot for a feast. The floor-to-ceiling windows give the feeling of being outside without having to contend with the elements.
In a small home, sometimes a room must perform not only double but triple duty for everyday living. Here the dining room serves as a formal dining area, a conversation spot and a kitchen all rolled into one. A round glass table provides a light, airy feel. Colors in the Roman shades tie the room together by picking up elements in the dining-room table, counter seats and ottoman.
