The floral wallpaper in this formal dining room is gorgeous, a design from Gracie Studio that was inspired by the homeowners' wedding china. But were it to cover the entire wall, it might be overwhelming, so designers kept it to the room's upper half and used crisp, white wainscoting on the bottom.
The Stansell family dining room is minimal in design but dramatic in hue. The gorgeous green is definitely a showstopper trimmed out in white and a perfect complement to the tulip-base white dining table. This room is an example of the fun you can have mixing furniture styles. The wood-stained chairs are more traditional, but they sit comfortably at a modern table, with an edgy chandelier and surrounded by contemporary art. The color green is associated with growth, harmony and safety: I’d say that’s a perfect fit for Stansell family dinners.
Luxurious tapestry in rich shades of forest green, chartreuse and burgundy adorn the walls of this dining room. The cotton velvet curtains tie in the red from the berries within the wallpaper pattern and match the velvet finish of the upholstered dining chairs. A traditional crystal chandelier completes the composed and beautiful design.
For a tone-on-tone effect, the formal dining room is equipped with several tints and shades of spring green. This subtle change in color adds a layered effect that’s elegant and understated but tonally in check with the greens seen in the adjacent great room. Layering several shades and tints of the same color is an excellent way to introduce color into your home without the hues becoming too contrasted or intense.

Just steps from the gourmet kitchen and overlooking the lush courtyard, the breakfast nook in the HGTV Dream Home 2009 creates a cozy, inviting space, making it the perfect spot to gather with family or friends, read the morning paper or fuel up with a cup of coffee before the work day. The bamboo window shades soften the space and add a touch of texture.
A sage green color scheme and traditional furniture give an old-world style to this formal dining room.

A traditional crystal tasseled chandelier hangs over the table, and the dining chairs feature green velvet upholstery.
Incorporating soft pinks and pastel greens, this dining room feels open and full of natural light. The custom pink table seats eight and was inspired by a Chanel piece. Two crystal chandeliers hang above the table, adding elegance and sophistication to the fun, feminine space.
