From breakfast nooks to formal tables, these gorgeous spaces might just inspire your next renovation.
Add statement lighting.
Just because your dining room is on the cozier side doesn’t mean you have to skip on a bold sconce. This gold globe pendant makes a statement flying solo — and would look just as good as a trio over a larger dining room table or island.
Start with a table you love.
Gone are the days of matchy-matchy dining sets. Find a table you love, like the rustic one here, then surround it with complementary chair pairings like ornate cane and plush upholstery.
Pull up a clear chair.
Create a clean look with transparent dining chairs (wipeable, so great for kids!). Then mix in a variety of textures, like matte-painted walls, a polished table and earthy jute blinds.
Add a rustic wooden log.
Tone down an ornate heirloom table with a knotted wood plank. Top with a plush cushion or a pillow for added comfort.
Create a farm-to-table nook.
Your breakfast table gets extra charming with the combination of metal bistro-style chairs and farm-style vintage seating.
Cozy up dinner with a sectional.
Fill a kitchen corner with a low profile couch (look for one covered in an easy-to-clean fabric like Sunbrella), then nestle in a square table. Genius!
