In this great room by Halden Interiors, sisal wallpaper connects the kitchen to the dining room and divides it from the seating area.
In this dining room by Raji RM, the big painting anchors the room and establishes the tone. It complements the classic dining table and sconces yet feels modern against the white paint, blonde wood, and contemporary lights.
Studio Shamshiri designed this dining nook with coordinating back cushions and seats. The wooden wall paneling warms the darker parts and echoes the informal chairs.
An offset, extra-large circular table flatters the window nook without appearing too crowded. It’s not against the windows nor in the centre of the room. Goemtric curves give complexity to muted colors and simple materials.
Welsey Moon grouped upholstered lucite tulip chairs around a Corian-topped table base. These pieces soften the formal banquette, parquet floors, and antique mirror. Blue velvet may look nice, but it’s made of outdoor-friendly fabric, so it’s durable.
Kingston Lafferty Design extended a built-in table to create an indoor/outdoor dining room. They’re connected by a wide window with accordion glass doors for seamless flow when larger parties are dining and by glossy tiles. They’re attractive and weatherproof. Plants connect the two spaces.
Heidi Caillier’s mini dining room is perfect for a studio apartment or a guest room. A narrow antique table can seat four if needed (there’s an extra stool off to the side in the sitting space to the left, not visible). It can be a makeshift kitchen island and prep space when not in use.
Wall-to-wall bookshelves in the dining room add character and storage. This will provide lots of mealtime conversation topics and reduce the need for expensive dining room wall décor. Books offer color and style.
Mix frame sizes and add a flash of color to a gallery wall. Devin Kirk added tie-on cushions to old chairs in this colorful dining room.
Ariene Bethea’s unique dining nook features a similar table and chairs. Pillows and throws make the corner nook warm and versatile. It’s fitted but warm and friendly.
