Glass elements piled on for optimum glamor and their lovely reflective properties translate to a trend you can easily introduce into your home. A portion of the wall is mirrored, but even the addition of glass accessories on a table or dresser can achieve this light, elegant effect. The Old Hollywood feel of this room is amplified with the palm-shaped dining room table with glass top and a subtle, almost shadow-effect custom mural in this stunning dining room from Philip Sides Interior Design. More sugary pastels add to the sumptuous mood.
`The dining set in this Midcentury Modern dining room was inherited by the homeowners who wished to have it included in the redesign of their home, so designers added some funky art an fun colors and textures to the space. Yellow modern art adds a cool pop of color to gray walls, and a modern chandelier is suspended above the table. To complete the space, new raw silk drapery was added to the windows to give the homeowners the option of privacy.
This breakfast area was intended to be a casual, comfortable space for the family. The table is reclaimed wood. Yellow end chairs are sunny, cheerful and a fun pairing with the triangle-shaped light fixture.
Most of this home's back wall is made up of windows and sliding glass doors so that the pretty bay view is always on display. And when the weather's right, those doors also make it a snap to take the party outside.
To create a visual distinction between the living room and the dining room despite the open concept floor plan of the home, designers painted the living room a sandy neutral color and the dining room a lovely blue that is the reflection of the color of the ocean. Both colors reflect the beauty of the sea.
To define the breakfast nook, the banquette and surrounding trimwork is painted a striking blue. Classic Windsor chairs sit opposite the leather-cushioned banquette, surrounding the farmhouse-inspired table.
A vaulted wood ceiling and exposed wood ceiling beams create a rustic backdrop for the open plan kitchen and dining area in this chic cabin. The clean-lined dining table and sleek chairs pair with a funky chandelier to bring contemporary flair to the earthy space.
The round table and patterned, upholstered chairs seat up to eight people. To add storage, designers brought in a buffet that is covered in faux-shagreen to add some nice texture against the wallpaper.
