Julie Khuu, an interior designer from Santa Ana, Calif., joined the cast of HGTV Design Star for season five. This dining room is one of the designs that landed her a spot on the show. Black leather chairs, dark wood floors and a dark wood table with elegant place settings create a striking look in this creamy modern dining room.
Bring the natural beauty of the coast inside by incorporating beach-inspired elements, like this driftwood-toned wooden table and sea-colored glassware. The seascape painting above the mantel reminds you that the water is never far away.
The open, southwestern-inspired kitchen and dining room is grounded by terracotta tile and hardwood flooring. A rustic dining table is paired with long benches for family-style dinners, while a two-tiered chandelier adds an Old World nod to the space.
Blue wall paneling and ceiling beams provide a bold backdrop for the pine dining table in this country-style dining room. A painted chandelier, striped curtains and white dining chairs help tone down the saturated wall color, creating an overall look that is cozy.
A simple, timeless dining room table with arched chairs sets the tone for this dining area. The informal chandelier, muted green curtains, neutral wall color and minimal table decor make this a casual space for entertaining friends and family.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, a once cramped living space was transformed into a bright and cheery open plan dining, living and kitchen area. Sarah chose antique-style wicker chairs, a traditional hanging chandelier and charming bird wall prints to satisfy her clients' love of vintage cottage decor. A gorgeous built-in sideboard adds extra storage and is a chic way to display vintage finds.
Gray textured walls surround a black dining table and chairs. A modern chandelier illuminates the gold-framed art and brings out the brushed gold details in the adjacent art pieces, while a green floral centerpiece accents the oriental design.
As seen on HGTV Design Star, Bex Hale’s design in this dining room pays homage to this ranch's rich cultural heritage that spanned from Mexico to West Texas. The arches were created from limestone quarried locally and the floors were fashioned from reclaimed barn wood. The home showcases antiques that Bex hand-selected in South-Central Mexico and Northern Africa.
This elegant dining room is furnished with a oval wood table, fabric-covered high-back chairs, patterned drapery and a low-hanging chandelier. Crown molding, damask wallpaper and a floral-shaped ceiling medallion add architectural interest to the space.
The dining room is a study in eclectic minimalism. A beautifully carved wooden door is reclaimed to find new life as the tabletop, overlaid with glass. The bright colors of the artwork, lanterns and bowls create a discreet yet energetic color palette.
At the core of Rayman’s design aesthetic are an array of cultural influences, combined into a coherent visual statement. In this bedroom nook, Chinoiserie drapery depicts a series of Japanese scenes. A Greek bust sits atop a Chinese-style console table. And an armchair gets an update in fabric designed by Kelly Wearstler. Mastery of the mix is what makes everything work together seamlessly.
The dining room was designed by Kelley herself. A wood bench was installed, neatly dividing the living and dining area. Upholstered cushions were placed to create a dining nook centered around a Saarinen-style table. The cushions add a colorful display to the dining area. Kelley upholstered them and the bench cushions in fabric from a collaboration between SUNO and KNOLL. The upholstery-grade pieces were inspired by traditional fabrics in Kenya, India and beyond.
