Formal Dining Room Shines in Baby Blue and White
Traditional meets contemporary style in this blue and white dining room. The wainscoting and ceiling is painted a light blue hue and is broken up by white floral wallpaper. The contemporary chandelier blends in with the room, which also being a statement piece.
Transitional Dining Room is Relaxed, Family-Friendy
A built-in banquette is flanked by tall glass cabinets for storing dishes and glassware, while a trio of chairs provides more seating on the other side of the table. A large contemporary art piece brings in a splash of color and rounds out the space.
A hand-carved solid birch mirror in a black finish hangs above an ebony hand-rubbed buffet table, drawing the eye up to visually heighten this neutral dining room. A modern polished nickel chandelier illuminates the crisp, clean table settings in the neutral space. White dinnerware complements the white wainscoting and tray ceiling, while clear glass vases hold fresh hydrangea bloom centerpieces.

Natural light illuminates this transitional dining room with a long rectangular wooden table and white dining chairs. An industrial circular chandelier with hangs from the white exposed beam ceiling, while hardwood floors finish off the look of the space. A bowl of fresh lemons adds a pop of color.
Transitional Navy Dining Room Features Bold Orange Rug
White molding and metallic accents keep this navy dining room from appearing too dark and dreary. Nearby windows allow plenty of natural light to filter through the space, while a delicate gold chandelier and recessed lighting illuminate the dining table below. Trendy gray upholstered dining chairs are grounded by a bold orange rug that adds a pop of color and movement to the room.
Transitional Dining Room in Mediterranean-Inspired Home
Clean lines and contemporary furniture mix with traditional lighting and Mediterranean design details in this California dining room. Curved lines create harmony in the space, from the arched doorways to the recessed ceiling dome to the round mirror above a modern console. Black and white art is a theme that carries through other rooms in the home's 11,000-square-foot interior. A wall-size pocket door opens this space to one of a series of outdoor courtyards.
The layout of the home's main living areas—seen here, the dining room and a peek into the kitchen—is open concept. Columns are a subtle architectural way to divide up the different spaces without breaking the visual flow.
A sparkling chandelier illuminates the black round dining table. Four upholstered chairs surround the table, providing comfortable seating. A black-framed mirror decorates the wall next to a large plant, which adds a splash of color to the neutral room.
Bright, Transitional Dining Room With Upholstered Metal Chairs & Round Table
Neutral paint and ample lighting give this space a beautiful bright look. Metal chairs with blue pattern upholstery are a great juxtaposition to the traditional circular dining table and elegant chandelier. A distressed buffet adds a great texture to the design, and a bookshelf and cabinet provide space for storage and organization.
When decorating rooms that open into one another, it’s important to create a natural flow with colors that don’t compete with each other. At first glance, the dining room and adjacent family room appear to be the same shade of blue, but they’re actually different. The minor tweak in tint gives each area its own identity without separating them too much visually.
Neutral Transitional Dining Area Features Open Floor Plan, Craftsman Table & Button Tufted Banquette
Combining a handsome rustic craftsman dining table and bench with a button-tufted banquette creates an intriguing mix while maintaining a comfortable feel in the dining area. The space transitions openly into the kitchen where a farmhouse sink, sophisticated cabinets and coffered ceiling add a bit of updated country flair that blends well with the vintage and contemporary accents.
