Neutral Dining Room With Mahogany Bookshelves
"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.
In this sitting room, the color comes from the accessories: books grouped together in similar hues and two bright paintings on the wall. The furniture and walls' neutral palette allows flexibility throughout the rest of the space.
Mahogany Doors Separate Kitchen and Dining Room Spaces
To separate the formal dining room from the kitchen, a set of custom mahogany doors were installed to give the spaces definition. However, the doors can be left open in order to make food transportation between spaces simpler.
White is a classic tone often used in shabby chic designs. HGTV fan rnhey wanted to create a light, airy dining room ideal for casual year-round entertaining, so she used this fresh hue as the base for her entire design. The upholstered cane-backed chairs, freshly painted table and vintage marine life prints are reminiscent of relaxed summers and shabby seaside homes. White beadboard walls allow the sand-colored curtains and accessories to act as complementary accents rather than simply appearing in the background. For an elegantly shabby look, combine your rustic pieces with more contemporary counterparts. The white table and rattan chairs feel ultra casual, while the symmetrical prints, pleated draperies and dark wood serving tray deliver a perfect hint of refinement.
Warm woods used on the floor, ceiling and for the French doors brings a warm, inviting vibe into this southwestern dining room. Neutral upholstered chairs surround the rustic dining table, while a chandelier adds a touch of glam.
In the dining room, a modern dining table seats ten. With cushioned dining chairs on one side, two upholstered head chairs and plush bench seating against the window, this dining space is the height of comfort and luxury.
In the dining room, the homeowners wanted to create an elegant, bright space, so designers used white as the basis for their design. This allows the walls to reflect the natural light of the windows at the front of the space, making this small room seem larger. Two modern art pieces add a splash of color to the space, while a modern dining table and modern chairs provide seating. In addition to the natural light, a modern chandelier hangs from the ceiling adding elegance and providing light at night and on cloudy days.
This dining room covers all ends of the brown spectrum. A classic dining set is surrounded by bamboo and a decorative sculpture, creating a nice blend of modernity and tradition. Giant leaning floor mirrors are a nice addition to accentuate warm track lighting and make the room appear larger.
The exposed architectural elements give this dining room an industrial flare and interest. This dining room design boasts exposed beams, pickled wood floors, a support column with stone detail and a high ceiling with tin tiles and molding.
The home owner decided to restore the original hardwood floors, and loves how the golden wood sets off the vintage details found throughout the house. She brought in her great grandmother's dining room table and chairs and is looking forward to entertaining friends and family.
