Transitional Dining Room Is Filled With Natural Light
Large windows line the walls of this transitional dining room, filling the space with loads of natural light for a bright, breezy atmosphere. The room features a dining area and seating area, creating endless options for utilizing the space.
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.
A cerused wood farmhouse table surrounded by ten tailored, ticking-striped chairs creates a pleasing combination in this transitional California dining space. The kitchen beyond is monochromatic, with wood plank, white-painted cabinetry topped by white marble countertops and backsplash.
Cozy Breakfast Nook With Wood Table, Matching Chairs
In addition to an eat-in island, this spacious kitchen boasts a breakfast nook in the far corner. A large glass pendant centers the space, while a wood table and five chairs ensure that everyone has enough elbow room.
Elegant Cream Dining Area With Chevron Skirted Table
A galley-style kitchen and dining room were expanded to create this open concept kitchen and dining area. Elegant cream walls and furnishings create a dining space that is warm and stylish. A chevron skirted dining table adds some visual interest and depth to the room.
Transitional Dark-Light Breakfast Nook Is Chic, Stylish
Millwork features the same dark stain as the cabinetry in this functional, traditional and family-friendly kitchen. Walls, countertops and furnishings, meanwhile, are light and neutral, creating a high-contrast space that stands out at the heart of the home. A pillar candle chandelier is distinctive above the breakfast table.
Scroll-back chairs surround a simple wood dining table in this open-concept room. A Chesterfield sofa in the shared living room space mirrors the design and color of the dining chairs. A gallery wall over the sofa showcases artwork and photography, adding personality to the space.
Banquette seating in the open kitchen is perfect for family meals. Plaid cushions add texture to the space, while vinyl is used on the seats to make it easy to clean. A wall of windows brings natural light into the space.
Special occasions call for a meal in the dining room. To ensure that the space would feel less formal and more approachable to guests, the designers outfitted the space with a distressed buffet and a farmhouse-style table. A beaded chandelier and an Asian-inspired triptych pack in even more visual interest.
"These mahogany bookcases define the foyer, dining and living room area without compromising the open feel; they also provide a creative way to display sculptures and artwork. The use of pure square design is a theme you'll see throughout this room and the house — on these dividers, the windows, even the stair balusters," says Shelby Littlefield, interior designer, Siemasko + Verbridge, Beverly, Massachusetts.
Traditional Dining Room With Metallic Tray Ceiling
This bold dining room features vibrant red accents paired with an oval dining table and plush neutral tufted armchairs. A traditional candelabra chandelier hangs from a metallic tray ceiling, while a bay window allows natural light to illuminate the space.
Sunny Dining Area Surrounded by Glass Folding Doors
Enclosing an area with sliding or folding windows allows you flexibility in how you use and experience the space depending on the season, the occasion, or just your mood. When choosing a large-opening door, your choices are virtually limitless. Here, folding doors open an intimate dining area to a much more expansive space. “Keep in mind that folding panels can be configured in numerous ways, from folding all to one side to splitting in the middle and folding to both sides. This unit also has the unique available option of a swing door within the folding door system. This means that the user can operate the user-friendly single door like any other door without having to open all of the panels,” says Lance Premeau, LEED® Green Associate Product & Market Manager, Kolbe Windows & Doors.
The stone fireplace in this dining room extends to the angled ceiling, emphasizing the height of the space. A custom cornice hides a Hunter Douglas shade, which can be lowered or raised to maximize the ocean view. A traditional oil painting offsets the modern vibe of the glass and metal dining table.
