10 Dining Rooms We Love For 2017
New Year, new . . . dining room? Even if you can’t quite commit to a complete overhaul of your space, small changes and updates can be make your dining space more inviting. If you’re anything like us, a few of your resolutions for 2017 might include 1. making more time for family and friends 2. entertaining more in your home. Afterall, the most intimate and spontanoues times shared with those you love are often those spent in the home over a delicious meal or bottle of wine.
Here are a few of our favorite stand out rooms to help you get inspired.
A dining room shouldn’t just be a table and chairs – but rather an extension of your home, that seamlessly flows with the space. Homey touches like a bold rug, lush fabrics, and architectural furnishings instantly update any eating territory.
Often times space is an issue for city folk, however…not an excuse. There are many alternatives to an expansive dining room. Try starting with a round table and bring in luxe pieces like upholstered chairs, a showstopping light fixture, and a textured rug.
Not one for frills and eclecticism? It doesn’t mean sacraficing the aesthetic integrity of a given space. Choose strong pieces for your dining area, that make a statement without being overthought.
A refreshing approach to any eating space, is one that evokes a light and airy feeling – and maybe even makes you feel a bit like you’re in a favorite vacation spot (ahem, wicker).
From the simple to the super elaborate, your space can be whatever you tell it to be. This one, screams bold and brilliant. Sticking to a monochrome palette it delivers Hollywood glamour in one breadth of blue.
Are you a traditionalist when it comes to home decor, but still looking to take things up a notch? Keep your palette neutral, and your impact effortlessly timeless. Fabric upholstered seating, a glossy farmtable, and some historic art – will do the job.
If your vibe is rustic modern, look no further than the perfect pairing of soft wood finishes and barely-there lighting. Afterall, the main event is the meal.
Sometimes, if you’re lucky, your space itself can do all of the talking. If your home has envious finishes like full-length windows, arched entries, and built-ins, then you needn’t do much more. A stong, yet unstated table is all that you really need.
Some dining spaces might commonly serve more than one purpose. If you want your table to function as a home office and chill spot, as well as a eating station, keep this in mind as you design. Incorporate meaningful arwork, scattering light, comfortable extra seating, and bold color – essentially making the room a sanctuary of your own.
If you have a fireplace in your dining room, it will likely be the focal point of the room. Lucky for you and your guests, it will make the space instantly ambient and cozy. The remainder of the space needn’t be overthought – but mismatching table and chairs or a large lighting ficture will bring the room to life when the fire isn’t roaring.
