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.

Enjoy!

Each plank in the classic Kensington dining collection tells a story of craftsmanship.

Bernhardt Loft is casual in nature and smaller in scale, but stylish and luxe with a fresh take on furnishings that reflect lifestyle, attitude, and individuality

Made one at a time, specifically for you, in a region of Italy renowned for its furniture-making, these exquisite dining pieces are built from solid wood. Each hand-distressed surface is artfully finished, combining layers of stain, paint, and lacquer with careful brushstrokes—a process which takes over three days to complete per piece. Cironi dining tables are built from solid poplar wood accented with hand-carved dentil moulding. Hand-distressed finishes are layered with grey, white, and natural tones, which coalesce in a versatile, timeless aesthetic.

Striking and beautiful, the Acacius Dining Table combines reclaimed wood with naturally weathered metal to uniquely accentuate any dining space. One-of-a-kind detailing is handcrafted by Mexican artisans by leaving panels of solid iron outside in the elements to naturally oxidize. Then, each piece of metal is moulded around natural wood veneers from ethically salvaged yucca trees. Every Acacius is a true work of art, and no two tables appear exactly alike.

Telluride Dining Table

This stunning ranch style house is perched high on a hilltop and nestled among the trees claiming its rightful place on a scenic 200-acre property in Texas. The owner desired an ample yet understated home with natural and simple architectural expression that would blend effortlessly into the landscape that surrounds it. Heavy timber columns and stone walls ground the home to the site. Reclaimed siding and simple barn-like structures give the architecture a sense of history and regional belonging. Referencing the owner’s love of the old west, many of the interior walls showcase the same stone and wood that is on the exterior of the home. This gesture alludes to a time when materials were not mass produced but simply gathered from the area and formed as needed.
