Dining room with simplicity design

A modern dining room will almost always be defined by simplicity. Geometric designs and simple patterns are often integrated in such designs. Disc Interiors chose to use here a simple striped rug and a set of stools with round seats instead of the usual dining chairs.

Details and accessories for dining room

Details and accessories are important for creating a suitable ambiance in the dining room. If you want to add drama to the space you can choose to hang long curtains in a rich color such as burgundy or purple. You can find some inspiration in this apartment designed by Marianne Tiegen.

White can also be a strong color if used right. You can make a white dining room look amazing by adding a few contrasting details such as a set of non-matching wood stools, a colored accent cabinet or an eye-catching table centerpiece.{found on Couleur Locale}.

If you want to play with shapes and discover interesting ways on combining various patterns, you can find some inspiration in the design created by Camille Hernand Architectures. This dining room combines modern and retro details with a touch of French glamor.

Before you start worrying about the little things, it would be best to focus on the basics. Dining room furniture is not usually very diversified. A table and a few chairs are all you need.

Another important aspect is the dining room lighting. Chandeliers and pendant lamps are popular choices. The team at Bruzkus Batek chose to display a set of three minimalist pendants above the table, thus establishing symmetry.

Fresco dining space design

Al fresco dining spaces are often considered the most charming and beautiful of all. There’s something special about having dinner while admiring a panoramic view or feeling a fresh breeze.

Wall decor ideas for dining room

The wall décor is another aspect to take into consideration. Peter Wilds chose here to frame a selection of minimalist black and white images and to display them on a gallery wall. The frames are not placed in a symmetrical or regular pattern. Their random placement sets a casual and relaxed ambiance.

Dining room with a mid century feel and wood accents

Another option is to add chalkboard walls to the dining room’s interior design. This allows the décor to be changed and customized in an infinity of ways. You can also add additional wall art such as a framed mirror or a painting.

Iconing dining room furniture and butterfly wall art

You can combine several different types of wall décor. For example, a wall can be painted black and then you can have something painted or stenciled on it for a bold contrast. Another wall cab be decorated with framed pictures, mirrors and other things.

Colors and hairpin bench for dining room

The colors featured by a wall painting can be reiterated throughout the dining room. For example, they can be employed when covering the chairs, benches or table. You can play with various colors, materials and textures the same way Studio Revolution did here.

Traditional kitchen room

Traditional homes may not be trendy right now but we all know how cozy and inviting they can be.

Perhaps a cabinet with a buffet at the bottom and open shelves at the top would be a good choice for the space.

Chandelier over kitchen table

We really love the way this chandelier is reflected into the dining table’s glossy top. The fact the rest of the furniture doesn’t share the same finish, color and characteristics is refreshing. In addition, the chairs are a really nice match.

subtle influences from various styles
