In this open kitchen and dining room, warm wood elements connect the two spaces with their simple lines and earth tones. To balance the stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, cool gray dining chairs were paired with the wood dining table.
Enjoy breakfast or early evening cocktails at this poolside glass table, surrounded by comfy white chairs with orange throw pillows for a pop of color. A covered dining area with a grill awaits bigger parties and more formal meals.
Understated elegance is the name of the game in this neutral dining room. A round rug in the same earth tones as the rest of the room grounds the design and creates a cohesive feel with the dining table and chairs.
Earth tones and pops of black elevate the look of this dining room. The rustic dining table is paired with simple black chairs and in all the wood details, the grain is allowed to show, letting the texture be an integral part of the design aesthetic.
A variety of patterns, from the graphic stair runner to the striped accent wall, create interest and texture in this dining room. Using the same soft brown and cream palette throughout keeps the look cohesive. A round dining table is surrounded by leather chairs in soft earth tones.
The downstairs dining room of this Point Lorna, California, villa home capitalizes on its high ceilings with the use of tall budding branches which tower above a round aqua blue glass dining table. Cushioned dining chairs feature woven seat backs which complement the texture of the space's architectural details including the stair's railing, stone wall trimming, and an earth toned stone pillar.
Earth-tone fabrics are part of the overall scheme of this elegant home. The cozy dining area features banquette seating, distressed wood table and traditional chairs. The built-ins provide extra storage, while a large contemporary art piece brings in a splash of color and rounds out the space.
Grasscloth wallpaper by Phillip Jeffries and an organic, feathery upholstery pattern bring a down-to-earth element to this otherwise glam space. Mixed metals on the light fixture and table base are a chic combo, creating a bistro-like dining nook that perfectly complements this home's streamlined kitchen.
Four dining room chairs in a houndstooth pattern upholstery are the visual standout in this transitional dining room. The decor and palette draw subtly on a '70s theme, with the gold and earth tones in the chairs' fabric set against a warm beige wall color, a metal frame table and votive candle centerpiece in amber gold, and wall art framed with a rich red border.
Earth-friendly materials, organic textiles and ethereal accents tie this space to its beautiful oceanside setting. The room's clean, neutral palette is layered with contrasting textures, from a nubby woven rug to a rough-hewn coffee table to a pair of smooth, white poufs that serve as extra seating. Dozens of tiny bulbs adorn the structured wire pendant, adding a touch of whimsy in the dining space.
Currently the only-North American location of the four-star Solis brand, with locations in Ireland and China (and new properties coming in Qatar, Florida and Indonesia), Solis shares an architecture firm, HOK (which also designed Atlanta's 1.6 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium) , with the equally slick and modern adjacent Porsche Experience Center. Amenity-loaded, the hotel has an indoor pool, on-site gym and free Wi-Fi and two memorable dining and drinking destinations. Overlooking both Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and the Porsche Experience Center track from its open-air rooftop perch, the Overdrive Lounge has a Jetsons-meets-Space Age vibe and chef Derrick Green's memorable bites including tuna tartare tacos you won't want to miss as well as the car-themed (when it Rome) Formula 911 featuring muddled blackberries, vodka and Combier. The equally stylish Apron restaurant also helmed by Ritz Carlton vet Green is more chef-driven and imaginative than your usual hotel spot. Apron also features a dog-friendly patio (recommended when the weather is nice), with both tables and lounge-type seating with an impressive view of the airport flight path. Green's focus on inventive Mediterreanean fare offers up nods to Greece in an oregano-infused chicken and to African foodways in a berbere-accented lamb dish with kale and a luscious, tangine-spiced farrotto. A caramel-poached golden beet salad with goat cheese mousse illustrates Green's desire to blend haute cuisine flavors and ingredients with delicious accessibility. Cocktails and craft beer offerings are imaginative and often feature local distilleries like Old Fourth Distillery and ASW as well as Jekyll Brewery, Terrapin and Hapeville's own Arches Brewery so diners can sample some locavore flavor.
