In a playful move by the designer, emerald green covers the walls and ceiling in the spacious game room while the billiard table shows off a ruby red. Double doors allow easy access to a patio and walkway.
A vivid green accent wall teamed with midcentury-modern-inspired chairs and a bold shag rug give this previously bland apartment both style and definition. A Noguchi coffee table mimics the curved lines of the bookcases, and custom drapery panels hide functional but unattractive vertical blinds. All elements in the space can be easily removed or replaced when the client, a renter, moves out.
Designer Danielle Colding bought this table with an espresso finish, then sanded it down, added a coat of white paint and quickly removed it. This created a whitewashed effect that evokes the look of driftwood.
For more formal affairs, the owners and their guests can move into the dining area. Here, an elongated table and dark wood chairs complement the room's more rustic details, while lanterns illuminate the space into the evening.
A neutral color palette gets an infusion of refreshing energy with blue accents in the table lamps, artwork, throw and accent pillows. In a clever design move, the twin lamps serve as a visual frame for the painting behind the sofa.
Blurry gray and black walls move around a large, circular dining table. Red velvet, brown velvet and plaid chairs alternate around the table and the crystal chandelier hanging above. The bold red from the chairs is echoed in the window curtains and sconce lampshades. Black molding borders the room and creates a decorative look on the ceiling.
In a move that's almost sculptural in effect, a dining table is positioned in the center of a series of rooms with open doorways. Black accents throughout the home help give definition to the sea of white.
Sophisticated and chic, this open plan dining area moves seamlessly into the living room making entertaining a relaxed, yet stylish affair. The cluster of pendant lights above the dining table help subtly delineate the space from the rest of the room.
In this small kitchen, square footage is preserved by an ingenious Murphy table. At mealtimes, the table drops down from the wall to provide intimate seating for one or two. In an extra space-saving move, there is also hidden shelving for cups and glasses tucked into the wall.
Part of making a small or tiny space work is keeping rooms clutter-free. Ample cabinet and closet space in this Movable Roots tiny home does the trick. In lieu of a table, a small half circle countertop for a few stools offers space for a quick bite, but plenty of extra room in the living area means guests can be accommodated for larger meals.
French doors were removed to open this dining room up to the living room, creating an airy, open concept feel. The dining room is painted in a beautiful subdued blue, drawing the focus of the room to the darker dining table and chandelier.
Heart cutouts and a cloud-like rug soften the minimalist chic that is this nursery's acrylic bassinet. Against the wall, a row of small stools are a smart, flexible, kid room solution, usable as one long table or easy-to-move small ones.
This open concept dining room, living room and kitchen don't have a lot of square footage, so designers moved seating to the perimeter. A long dining table backs up to the wall with a banquette that transitions easily into the living room.
Two area rugs help visually to define separate seating areas in this long, slim living room. Down by the bay window, a brown leather ottoman doubles as a coffee table and is easier to move as needed in the smaller space.
Prior to the renovation, the dining room was isolated from the kitchen and seldom used. Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri removed a wall to unify the spaces and create this open and inviting dining area with a beautiful farmhouse table.
John and Anthony, hosts of HGTV's Kitchen Cousins, have opened up the Sosa's cramped kitchen and dining room space. The wall between the kitchen and dining room has been mostly removed, but the load bearing portion remains. The fireplace has been removed to modernize the space, and the stone backsplash in the kitchen ties perfectly into the stone table top on the dining room table. That light gray color is complimented nicely by warm, rich wood throughout the kitchen and dining room.
The kitchen’s inviting breakfast area in front of the center island features a large 72-inch wide wood dining table with unexpected seating options. A custom church pew, round ottomans that are easy to move around and Parson style dining chairs upholstered in a woven black plaid fabric give everyone a seat at the table.
