From floor to ceiling, the entire dining room features rustic, exposed grain wood. Strong statement pieces, like a navy blue buffet, mirrored chandelier and even a simple bear portrait, are used to break up the wood. The comfortable dining room is made of a wood slab table, gray bench seats and slipcovered armchairs.
Rustic meets chic in the Arden Ridge collection. Incorporate mahogany solids for enduring style, and add the classic straight lines and felt-lined drawers in the server for timeless elegance. The sepia wall art and neutral-colored rug soften the atmosphere of distressed finishes to create the perfect rustic retreat.
One of the advantages of this ranch home's subdued neutral palette is that the views outside feel so lush in comparison. The dining room looks out onto mountains; two large houseplants also help pull nature in.
Etched-finish pavers surrounded by a pebble border define each space, the living room and dining area. Weathered redwood slats are used to create an open ramada that provides shade from the hot Tuscon sun during the day.
The beautiful high ceilings of this rustic dining area create a gorgeously spacious feel for the design. A wood paneled ceiling, decorative marble flooring and natural rock walls combine for a great textural surrounding. An antler chandelier provides lighting above a large, natural wood dining table and red wood chairs.
In the new dining room, existing windows were replaced with French doors and sidelights to bring lots of natural light into the space. Joanna added a statement chandelier, rustic wood dining table, and glass-front bookcase, also in the natural wood finish.
HGTV Star contestant Brooks Atwood gathered this collection of vases and vessels to decorate the dining table, but both Sabrina and Vern found it over-accessorized. "It’s better to have one great item than a bunch of items that are fighting with each other," Vern said.
