With comfortable chairs and a soft area rug for guests, this formal dining room takes Southern Hospitality to a stylish new level. To the left of the table, a wood buffet offers storage for glasses, plates and other dinner essentials.
Large windows with dark wood trim continue the Old World feel into the dining room. Because the walls and floors are so much lighter, the wood adds dimension to the space and draws the eye in towards the antique table.
A pecky cypress ceiling with exposed wood beams makes a striking focal point in this traditional dining room. A neutral palette and smartly chosen, minimal accessories lend a warm ambiance and make the room feel large and open.
Floor-to-ceiling windows open this sophisticated dining room up to the adjacent porch and sweeping views beyond. The wood paneling makes a warm atmosphere heightened by the glass globe pendants that seem to float above the table.
A simple wooden dining table brings farmhouse friendliness to this dining area. The gray pendant light is an unusual and striking pairing. Glass doors lead directly out to the backyard and pool, a handy arrangement for entertaining.
In this just-a-hint-more-formal dining room, a wide country-style table makes up to 10 comfortable. The decor is simple and fun: open shelves display collections of glass bottles, teacups and pretty dishware.
This formal dining room is the toast of the dinner party thanks to style that's sophisticated but not at all stuffy. At the far end of the space, a bay window makes the ideal nook for a cozy, round table, a pretty spot for breakfast.
