"I’ve tried to keep it very light, airy and incorporate a lot of natural textures and details like plants, rugs, special light fixtures," says Rachel Roberts of her beach front Malibu home. A mix of simple, elegant details like the chandelier in her dining room and comfort, as seen in the fur throw on the bench, create a welcoming, unfussy vibe in the home.
The chandelier is easily the star of the space, with a natural texture that feels wonderfully boho-chic. A vintage table and six wicker chairs complement the laid-back look and invite the whole family to gather for breakfast.
Instead of a traditional coffee table, this living room is actually anchored by four small side tables. These pieces can be moved around the room as needed, and so they give the owners more flexibility in their arrangement.
Though the dining table and chairs lean a little modern, the stenciled wall treatment and beaded textile chandelier add a cool, boho element. In turn, the dining room is balanced and full of visual interest.
This living room reflects the free-spirited style of its homeowners with calming colors and a bohemian flair. A light blue midcentury modern sofa channels Mad Men, while a rustic wood coffee table keeps the area feeling casual.
A beautiful eclectic chandelier hangs above the dining table in this vintage-style dining space. The dining hutch is flanked by two long windows letting in lots of natural light and giving the upholstered, neutral dining chairs warmth.
In the dining area, a modern, marble top dining table and leather Poliform chairs provide stylish seating that help to keep an open, airy feeling in the space. Floating above the modern addition is a series of three George Nelson pendants add texture and warmth to the design of the home.
A long wooden dining table is surrounded by chic, white chairs, while a modern chandelier adds a glam note to the space. The open floor plan combines the dining space, living room and terrace for an inviting, perfect-for-entertaining space.
Designers brought the Midcentury Modern look to life in this newly redesigned home with a Broyhill Brasilia dining table and a custom banquette covered in gray tweed. The modern dining chairs were repurposed and recovered, with three of them coming to rest around the dining table and the fourth finding its home under the newly commissioned painting of Alexander Hamilton by Mike Johnson. To complete the space, designers hung a cubist light fixture and had a local artist custom paint the walls to put the finishing touches on the Midcentury Modern dining room.
This dining room is a perfect example of the designer’s "Afro-minimalist" style. On the wall, a painting from the local gallery brings the room’s palette of black, blue and blush tones together. Around the table, a mix of modern dining chairs shows that minimalism doesn’t have to be boring. And soft, tufted rug is a callback to the living area, creating a sense of continuity and completeness between the two rooms.
In the dining room, the homeowners wanted to create an elegant, bright space, so designers used white as the basis for their design. This allows the walls to reflect the natural light of the windows at the front of the space, making this small room seem larger. Two modern art pieces add a splash of color to the space, while a modern dining table and modern chairs provide seating. In addition to the natural light, a modern chandelier hangs from the ceiling adding elegance and providing light at night and on cloudy days.
