Ideal for entertaining, HGTV Dream Home 2015 expertly combines the dining and great rooms. Guests can sit and relax in the great room, enjoy dessert at the table, or mix and mingle throughout both spaces.
A neutral color palette pairs with warm wood accents in this open, transitional living space. White leather chairs surround a lovely wood table in the dining area. Recessed lighting and a large light fixture above the dining table fill the space with light.
Upholstered, elegant dining chairs with high backs provide a transitional design element to this dining room by designer Valerie Ruddy. Borrowed from the look of the classic wing chair, the chair style here is given a modern and sleek update. To one side of the room, a bench serves as a bridge within the open-plan design and can be used for entertaining groups without obstructing views. With an abundance of comfortable and plush furnishings, this dining room is just right for entertaining family and friends.
In this stylish and contemporary space made over on HGTV's Brother Vs. Brother, gray and silver living and dining room looks sleek and elegant in this open layout space. Plush orange chairs surround the simple wooden dining table for a pop of unexpected color.
This stunning two-story room is absolutely breathtaking, joining with the dining room for a modern, open feel. “We wanted to keep it open, airy and light feeling,” says HGTV Dream Home 2015 interior designer Linda Woodrum. “That was a goal – to come into a very traditional home and have this real nice, light sense. We kept the palette very light.”
The dining room was once a narrow, closed off space with a tiered flooring separating this room from the rest of the house, so to maximize the home's potential and update its layout, Chip and Joanna removed the walls separating the dining room and living room and removed the tiered flooring. Now, the dining room is an elegant part of an open concept home whose flooring is all on one level. As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
