In them, you’ll find inspiration for everything from creating a beautiful backdrop to fashioning a statement-making space. Take a look...
#1 Classic Meets Modern
When it comes to classic dining room design, gold and wallpaper are it. But they’re also on top of the trend charts right now. Putting a modern spin on traditional decor is all the rage these days, and this dining room does it oh-so well. Just look at the contemporary gold accents and geometric wallpaper. Set against the black ceiling, there’s not much more to say than, “WOW!”
#2 Fresh Blooms
Fresh flowers add so much to a dining room design: color, texture, life, and interest. During the holidays, it can seem natural to focus on jewel tones, but we love the choice of yellow here. It’s bright happiness instantly pops against the neutral backdrop in this space. And we also love that it’s spread among multiple bouquets. Beau-ti-ful!
#3 High Contrast
Designers have been enamored with using contrast for quite a while. And that’s probably because its effect is so breathtaking! In this dining room design, the chandelier’s contemporary sparkle contrasts exquisitely with the rustic appeal of the wooden tabletop and greenery. While the photograph and white trim pop against the deep blue wall.
#4 Industrial Lighting
No dining room design is complete without the perfect lighting. One of today’s most popular choices, featured in this dining area, taps into industrial styling. A minimal metal frame creates a boxy case for lights to shine. It’s strong, clean lines bring a sophisticated edge.
#5 Custom Fabric Shades
To create a stellar dining room design in a space with large windows or doors, window coverings are a must--especially here in Arizona. While we love the style that these custom, cellular shades from Graber bring to this space, we simply can’t get over their function. Offering adjustable light and privacy control along with view and energy-efficient design, these shades upgrade the beauty and comfort of this elegant dining room.
#6 Statement-Making Accents
The dining room is an ideal spot for making a statement of personal style. As you gather with friends and family to share incredible memories and food, you should be surrounded by what you love. And that’s why we love this dining room design. From the geometric wallpaper and upholstery to the eye-catching blue wall, each element is so intentional and personal.
#7 Simplicity at Its Finest
Minimalism works so well in dining spaces because you really just need the essentials. When each piece is hand-picked and artfully arranged, the result is chic and phenomenal. Here, greenery at varying heights puts the finishing touch on this simple, yet stunning, dining room design. Bringing texture, dimension, and a pop of color, it’s simply perfect!
#8 The Classic Duo
One of the reasons black and white live on in as favorites in the design world is because decorating with them is practically foolproof. You just can’t go wrong. Mixing and matching patterns, textures, and elements works so naturally, and it’s easy to incorporate other colors and metals. Case in point? This dining room design. It pulls out the timeless nature of the classic duo while gray, contemporary gold accents, and a geometric rug enter the space to speak to today’s trends.
#9 Going Bold
Neutrals are quite popular in dining room design because they set a backdrop that can welcome almost anything. But, this space proves that going bold can be truly magnificent. The blue ceiling, the patterned rug and wallpaper, the modern chandelier...they all come together for a stylishly striking look that feels designer and like home.
