When we moved into our new house we finally had enough room to have a separate dining room. It’s not a room that gets used as an entertaining or eating space very often but it’s still the first room everyone sees when they come to our house. I definitely do not have enough furniture to fill my house and the dining room is the room that needs the most filling. I have a dining table and four chairs and that’s about it. I currently have my desk in this room to help fill it up but would REALLY love to get a buffet + hutch combo to define the space as a dining area and provide a space to display some of my things. I really like the vintage, eclectic look and cannot wait to inject it into my dining room. Here are some of my favorite inspirational rooms:
Ok, so this is actually a wedding reception but there are still a lot of great things going on that can translate over into a personal dining room. First of all, I absolutely adore the mismatched chairs. If I had it my way, all my chairs would be different and none would match my table. I also love the soft colors of the table cloth and the fresh flowers.
So this room is really white and I love it. From the beautiful farm house-y white table to the mismatched chairs. The bright window light coming through, the white fireplace + mantel and the place settings are perfect.
Mmm how I love the dark wood floors, light walls and yellow chairs of this room. I think it’s very elegant without being too predictable. I hope to someday have a beautiful chandelier in my dining room, which adds a formal touch to the space.
I’m mainly including this image because of all the colors. I love the yellows, magentas and blues in this room. The huge windows and built-in book shelf don’t hurt either. This space is far more grand and formal than I ever plan on having but the color inspiration is great!
Another favorite. Again, I love the contrast of the white table with the darker chairs, floors and buffet. I really like the thrown together look and the country flair. I really hope to be able to find the perfect buffet + hutch combo soon to add to my room
