This room stars marble flooring too pretty to cover up. Instead, an oblong table with matching chairs fills the space. Ceiling-hung
drapes grace the French doors.
A Rich Meal
With a pillow for comfort, an armless upholstered
sofa allows guests to sit in glamorous style, tucking their legs beneath the filmy tablecloth that covers the table in this opulent dining room. Silk and sheer drapes pool on the floor covering while accenting an expansive arched window.
Sleek Yet Structured
A quirky mix of formal and mod design choices meshes here because of a unified
color scheme. Damask wallpaper, wainscoting, and a built-in china hutch all speak to a laced-up tradition, while leather seating and a contemporary light fixture are decidedly modern-day. Luxurious drapes in chocolate brown add visual interest.
A Stone Standout
stone fireplace dominates both this dining room and the living room that shares the impressive feature. Simple furnishings and an unadorned floor let the stone take center stage, but open shelves for tableware and a chandelier rack up style points, too.
dining provides flexible seating in this grand room. A delicate chandelier hangs from the ceiling, but the real stars are the built-ins that create a niche for the sideboard and showcase contemporary artwork, whose rich colors don't look at all out of place here.
Curtain Number One
Soft yellow drapes conceal shelves filled with everything necessary for a fine
dining experience. Dishes and glassware are at eye level, as are favorite wines and salt and pepper shakers. Less-used cake stands, decanters, and a wicker picnic basket are stored up top.
A subtle, nature-inspired paint finish envelopes this room in soothing green and white. Armless upholstered chairs gather around a modified pedestal table set for dinner. A custom-made glass
chandelier is like a piece of art hanging from the ceiling.
Nestled in one end of a long
dining room is a hardwood table surrounded by antique white chairs. The natural weave Roman shades and the neutral wall color get needed pop from the red upholstery fabric on the chairs.
A Tasteful Balance
Flowing pleated drapes,
crown molding, small-scale wallpaper, and upholstered armchairs could leave any dining room a little stiff. Adding a leopard-print floor covering, however, gives the formal space a "wild" Hollywood-glamour feel.
A Pretty Second Fiddle
In a room dominated by the view outside, the
window treatments must be gorgeous enough to make a style statement, but simple enough to take a backseat to Mother Nature. Here, a classic coral-colored floral banded by gingham accomplishes this perfectly.
Creamy white wainscoting separates the hardwood floor from the papered walls in this
dining room. A built-in buffet and window ledge leave plenty of room for charming displays. Classic yellow floral valances complement the painted furniture and glass-top bamboo table.
Having contemporary style means editing your space of any extra accessories and choosing stylish, functional pieces. In this
dining room, a natural-wood display shelf sits beneath mood-setting artwork. Lamps suspended at different heights from the ceiling add interest over the glass table.
