For this renovation, designer Amy Elbaum used modern and contemporary art to create an aura of sophistication for each redesigned space. In the dining room, an eclectic gallery of art was hung on one wall to create striking interest. The art complements the simpler design of the table and chairs.
Abstract art by painter Danae Anderson introduces both bold shapes and organic lines into the HGTV Dream Home 2014 dining room, all while tying together the bold hues and warm neutrals used in the room.
This unique wall art of old-world French scenes graces the walls of the Dining Room. This trio provides warmth and a spark of intensity to the light blue walls of this space. Also evident is a sense of triptych art.
This traditional dining room is anchored by a large piece of art. A modern black dining table with metal legs adds an edgy touch, while the black and white dining chairs provide ample seating for a large group.
Mid-century-inspired furniture combines with the warm wood trim of this dining room to create an updated space that serves the needs of a young, active family. A dropped lampshade-style light fixture offers ample task lighting for dining. The mid-century wire mesh chairs are made more comfortable with leather seat and back cushions.
With hints of art deco style, this eclectic dining room is wild and wonderful. Gorgeous teal floral wallpaper, a soft lavender coffered ceiling, bright yellow velvet chairs, a funky bubble chandelier and a colorful chevron rug pull the eccentric look together.
In dining rooms, art is used to create a focal point and also provoke conversation from guests seated at the table. Consider a youthful, cheery approach to dining room art by having children’s art professionally mounted and framed with grown-up material. Instead of museum glass, opt for non-glare acrylic which is kid-safe and easy to clean.
In this modern dining room, colorful abstract art takes center stage. A small black round table anchors the room while four white molded plastic chairs offer a sleek dining space for intimate entertaining.
A unique art installation featuring eight white globes adorned with gold paint takes center stage in this dining room. These pieces were arranged in a slanted line on a blank white wall behind the glass and metal dining table and teal dining chairs, all of which create a deliberate, stylized effect in the room. The floral centerpieces add an unexpected softness to the design.
Dramatic art and lighting steals the show in this clean, contemporary dining room. Windows on all sides of the space bring in loads of natural light and offer great views of the backyard. A dark wood dining table with a clean metal base is set off by four plush, yet spare chairs with midcentury styling.
