With open concept homes being so popular and in demand you tend to see less and less of dining rooms. However I do see the formal dining room coming back into floor plans and home designs. This week I was looking into dining rooms and the furniture that goes with it. These are some of my top inspiration looks that I loved.
1. Cofferred Ceilings is all I see in this space, I am still so in love with this design feature. What a difference it makes in a room. The Wainscoting is also very complimenting, it completes the materials and surfaces design aspect. As for décor, Window treatments frame the windows nicely. I love the symmetrical wooden framed art work. The soft blue paint on the walls compliment the wooden textures in this space very well.
2. MDF Paneling I did something similar to this in my design office at work, the substance it adds to the room is great. The deep blue is very on trend at the moment. I love the combination of the dark wall and the light wallpaper and chair upholstery. The contrast black console with metallic art and different shades of blue in accessories. The only thing I see wrong with this space is the area rug under the dining table it doesn’t seem to be the right size. When placing an area rug under a dining table you need to make sure you include some chair room. Measure the top of the table and add 24-30 inches to each side so you have room to easily pull out and push in a chair while sitting in it. It’s really a hassle if the dining room rug is not large enough and the back legs of your chair keep going over the edge of the rug.
4. For a more contemporary look this room was great. Everything is very minimal, bright, light, sleek with straight lines. The perfectly placed framed art work covers the entire wall, which I liked a bit different then just placing a mirror or a large piece or framed art. I love the random pops of color in this space. The one red chair and the bright yellow console, its unexpected yet works. The inspirational piece being the multi color art on the fireplace mantel. I am not a fan of the one chair that is placed by the console table underneath the window. There is no purpose for it, I would’ve preferred to see a plant there or kept it bare.
