Dining Room Ideas

Over the years as an interior designer, I have collected a multitude of resources in order to present a wide variety of concepts to my clients. Personal preferences in regards to the design elements in one’s home can be diverse. It is my hope that the following curated images well help pull together inspiration and ideas to help others create the ultimate dining room. Whether you wish to create a modern, contemporary, traditional, rustic or eclectic dining room it is essential to have some sort of feel for the patterns, prints, colors and texture you’d like to incorporate into the space. Are you looking for a round table or square? Is the dining room part of the kitchen or a separate entity? Is the dining room space small or large? Regardless of size, it is easy to turn a dining room into a focal point with simple style and fabulous design elements.

Another great source of inspiration for me has been my Stunning Home Decor & Design board on Pinterest. It is a collaborative board, and those pinning to it really have an exceptional eye for detail! With over 140,000 followers (6.6 million views per month)  it provides a constant stream of gorgeous interiors. I’ve used many of the ideas presented in various applications in my own home. At the bottom of this page are a series of images optimized for my Pinterest friends, as well as a Dining Room Furniture Resource Directory.
