How to Bring Out The Best in a Dining Room

Dining rooms are such a key part of a home, a space where people are able to connect and indulge in conversation, food and the overall joy and company of loved ones. When it comes to entertaining, whether it be for a small get together with close friends or a large event during the holidays, dining rooms must always be fabulous!

I have decided to take a look into a few dining rooms that have really stood out to me, all with different design styles and tastes. I hope that you are able to be inspired by these interiors and find a look that reflects you!

The colors of this Dining Room are fresh and rich; the chocolate ebonized paneling really makes the bright green chairs pop. If you are looking for a funky yet classic look, then this space is inspiration for you!

This space is the perfect example of how to achieve a modern, bright, crisp and energized feel while using traditional and timeless pieces. Just through the pops of bright orange on the walls in contrast to the stark white trim, base and molding, the room is automatically brought to life. All of the furniture and accessories are traditional and have been updated with crisp colors. The final touch that is just to die for, are the dining chairs; there is not only an array or styles/lines in the chairs, but they have been upholstered in a great zingy yellow.

Alessandra Branca Interior Design

Here is the perfect setting if you are dealing with a smaller space. Designer Alessandra Branca has achieved an incredibly fun and playful feel through the color scheme and patterns that are used on the walls and draperies. It is obvious that there has been much attention put into the colors and fabrics. Even the draperies that lead into the space feature the pinks and navy’s that are seen through the entire room. Something that is key is the fact that the touches of pinks can easily be taken out which would leave the room with a much more masculine and mature feel.

Timothy Whealon Interiors

Now for another even more girly and feminine look, is this dining room designed by Timothy Whealon. I am so in love with the ways, in which he has used the pinks on the chairs, upholstering the fronts, seats and backs in two different hues and prints. Despite all of the variation of colors that are being introduced, they all seem to just melt together. This again is a perfect example of how a designer has taken traditional pieces and updated them with fresh and creative colors for a beautifully distinct look; this is true design.

Amanda Nisbet Design

This dining area designed by Amanda Nisbet is the perfect take on a Modernized and current royal setting fit for a queen. She has done such an excellent job of combining highly decorative and ornate antique pieces with modernized sleek statements, while still creating a design that reads cohesive and pleasing.

Here is another fantastic room by Amanda Nisbet. It is the perfect example of how you can incorporate a bold modern color, but use it in a way where you can integrate traditional pieces while still giving off a timeless, yet elegant feel. The animated green has given the traditional wood buffet, chandelier and mirror a new and fresh look.

This dining room designed by Miles Redd is incredibly striking. He has combined such distinct styles in a one of a kind way. By incorporating the bold geometric glossy floors with the black lacquered dining table and chairs, he has created his own look. The chairs have also been upholstered in an array of bright energetic colors, not to mention the addition of the glossy emerald green lighting fixture. All of these colors and finishes generate a bright and exciting look. However the essential piece is the antique armoire that is the center piece of the room. To me this is just wonderful; he has used all of these modern elements of design to modernize timeless elegant pieces while still having a look that is completely cohesive and one of a kind.

I hope you have been inspired by the variation of these dining rooms and most importantly found a look that relates to you and reflects your personality. If you would like to be inspired by more spaces, you can view my work.  And remember, It’s all in the details. Please feel free to contact me if you have any comments or questions.
