This rustic dining room was created with soft gray walls, farmhouse-style dining table and an exquisite white antler chandelier. The style is tied together with an antique mirror, photographs, old glass bottles and fresh flowers.
This rustic dining room, first seen on HGTV's Kitchen Cousins, features a tongue and groove ceiling and wide plank hardwood floors. The honey-toned wood details are offset by a distressed dining table topped with a white antler chandelier.
This home is all about a unique use of materials, clearly seen in the range of textures in this dining room. On a grand scale you see the varying use of metal, leather and wood, but little details like the shattered glass hiding in the dining room table are what make the space unique.
Contemporary Dining Room With Rustic Chic Chandelier
A dramatic 51-inch-high Empire-style light fixture fashioned from wrought iron and washed wood is the focal point in this formal dining room. Semi-sheer linen drapes can be pulled around to create privacy in the dining room from the kitchen and living room, transforming the space into a cabana-like retreat.
A European-style chandelier and sconces provide soft lighting in this cozy dining space. The dark wood dining table and black china cabinet add sophisticated contrast to the neutral wall color and curtains, and a silver tree branch candelabra accentuates the rustic elegance of the space.
A white ceiling and wainscoting frame in the dining room's bold wallpaper which helps both to set it off and keep it from feeling too overwhelming for the space. A gold and crystal chandelier layers a delicate note on top of the strong colors and patterns.
"The idea in this space was to conceal an ugly kitchen vent and create a focal point above the banquette, so I designed a modern version of a shoji screen. To make it more personal, I took words from an Arabic prayer the homeowner learned as a child and stenciled them on the Plexiglas using silver paint," says Betty Wasserman, owner and designer, Betty Wasserman Art and Interiors, Ltd., New York City, NY.
