I’m most drawn to rooms where traditional elements are mixed with modern pieces, it makes a space feel more collected and less matchy matchy or straight from a big box store. Dining rooms are great place to ignore the old rules of a perfectly matched set and mix it up by pairing modern or industrial with traditional or cottage styles.
The marriage of traditional and contemporary is labeled “transitional” in design, you can never go wrong with a wood plus white medley as these dining rooms demonstrate. Pack a modern punch with the additional use of a bold wallpaper or textile, or black and white photography and a statement light fixture too !
