As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, designer Jillian Harris continues her contemporary design in the dining room. With Edison lights hanging above the dining table, the space has a unique lighting option. The contemporary artwork on the wall adds color to the neutral space, while the solid color of the table cloth helps to tie the whole room together.
This dining room takes on a rich, formal tone, with a charcoal color palette on walls and ceiling, white trim and woodwork, jewel toned table cloth, upholstered dining chairs, and floral arrangement, and traditional crystal chandelier.
This white, eclectic dining room features a holiday tablescape with lush white floral arrangements, taper candles and sparkling silver ornaments. The crisp white table cloth and neutral place settings provide the perfect backdrop for showcasing the holiday decor.
Keep your outdoor buffet well-stocked and tidy by simply draping a linen table cloth over a utilitarian collapsible buffet table. The linen tablecloth will add a more tailored, polished look, and all of the space below can be used to keep drinks, supplies and vessels within arm's reach.
To save room in this multi-functional nursery space, designers removed the door from the closet in the room and installed a changing table equipped with all the essentials. This clever idea keeps clothes, diapers and blankets close at hand. As the baby grows and the changing table is no longer needed, it can be removed from the space and it can function as a big kid's closet.
Plenty of closets have islands, but this one has a built-in dressing table as well – just the thing for coordinating wardrobe and makeup. This generously sized closet features high hanging clothes racks that smoothly descend down within reach via convenient pulls. Built by Visbeen Architects, Inc. for both her and him, this master closet is nestled between the master bedroom and master bathroom, its design reflecting the contemporary style of the rest of the home.
You can use any items from around the house to create a tablescape. Simply choose things with texture such as a canvas drop cloth for use as a table cloth. Cover vessels with wrapping paper or maps for a pop of color and pattern, and create a centerpiece with a grouping of random objects with interesting shapes.
To create drama, think of each decorative element in reference to its visual weight and shape. This table for four is lacking in a table cloth or runner; instead, different textures and sheens of varied materials, from the seagrass and cork chargers to the antique brass place setting and the coarse texture of the thistle centerpiece, anchor the tablescape.
Take the formality out of your dining room with a more casual approach to setting the table. In place of fine china and monogrammed napkins, try using colorful cloth napkins, bright placemats and melamine plates and bowls.
The 13-foot-wide kitchen in this small home does double duty: It's both the laundry room and the cook space. A clever custom table attached to the island creates family dining space and a surface for folding clothes.
A glass vase full of oranges adds another layer of color to this patio table. A dark-blue-and-white patterned runner is complemented by bright blue and green cloth napkins and white plates, making for a perfect arrangement for alfresco dining.
