In this space, a large, glass-topped table with seating for six creates a functional dining space for the family and their guests. To keep the eclectic feel alive in the space, designers chose a table whose base is part of a tree trunk to give the design a bit of additional personality.
Though the living room is an undoubted showstopper, the dining room might be the purest example of a design style that Tamara describes as, “Edgy modern with a rustic undertone and pops of fun color.” This room has all of that and more from the funky paint job on the walls to the metallic tabletop adorned with bowls of grass. And if that isn’t '80s punk rock enough for you, there’s the snake plant propped atop the bottom half of a mannequin to complete this awesome, unique picture.
Though the first floor of this home isn’t an open plan, the living room and dining room are close enough to each other to require a few connections in their design plan. The stripes on the rug, the polka dots on the table runner and even the triangle patterns on the wall in the dining room all have correlatives in the living room. And where there is the biggest difference - the complete lack of art in the dining room - all of the colors on the wall have been taken from the living room gallery wall, creating some beautiful visual connections.
A built-in banquette is a smart way to bring a lot of seating to a dining room without taking up much floor space. This corner one lets 8 sit comfortably around the table; the vibrant upholstery equals instant energy.
Original to the dining room, hand-painted wallpaper inspired the exuberant palette in this San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 With Good Company space. Designers George Brazil and Cecilia Sagrera-Hill paired an eight-sided table with an enchanted garden-like setting to create the perfect place to savor good food, good conversation and good company.
This all-white dining room boasts colorful accents, like the modern artwork that hangs above a metal console table with a white top. A pink, orange and neutral striped upholstered bench adds a fun touch, while floral throw pillows finish off the look of the space.
This bright and eclectic dining room is based on Spanish-style charm. Yellow chairs surround a circular marble table, and a variety of rugs and artwork fill the room. An elegant glass chandelier brings an air of sophistication to the space.
Mural-like wallpaper and patterned curtains ensure this traditional dining room doesn't feel tired or stuffy. Spider back dining chairs are enlivened with green upholstered seats, and a stunning chandelier crowns the space.
Red velvet drapes hang on the windows in this traditional dining room with floral wallpaper that contrasts with the crisp white wainscoting. The long dining table made of dark wood is flanked with matching chairs and set with lime green linens and a floral centerpiece.
The dining room traditionally gets a lot of visitors, so in this one, original artwork is given pride of place. Surprisingly, the black-and-white wallpaper becomes a perfect backdrop for the painting's subtle pastels.
