Keep things simple with this a fall tablescape that leaves room for everyone's plate but still feels sweet enough to show you care. Here a bowl of seasonal pears and an olive branch in a simple vase are a wink and nod to the season. They invite guests to your fall holiday table and leave room for all the wine bottles, plates, and dessert dishes they might bring with them.
If you love the look of a sconce, but don’t want to go through the hassle of hard-wiring lighting (not to mention the price tag of hiring an electrician!) opt for a plug-in sconce instead. Sconces are both versatile and trendy—but hard-wiring is expensive. So, a plug-in sconce gives you that stylish, custom look without requiring extra expenses.
It can be hard to make an open living-dining space feel formal. Often the layouts are so open and airy they lend themselves to a more casual vibe, which is fine, but what if casual isn't your thing? This dining area manages to feel formal thanks to two things: #1 dining takes place by the fireplace, which adds grandeur to each meal, and #2 a statement-making table draws you in and makes each meal feel like an event to remember.
Equestrian motifs such as the horse wall-art in this room are a common (and delightful) element in southwestern decor. The designer played up the pony vibes with a hide rug (no horseys were hurt) and faux fur stool, which reflect the playful dignity of our four-hoofed friends.
With an open living and dining space, an eclectic approach to furnishings is a great way to create an overarching sense of comfort. Use a sectional to divide up the room while adding comfort, pull in an expandable dining table to add some versatility, and work in rounded pieces like a big armchair, pouf, and curvy coffee table. Then balance it out with eye-catching accents, such as an industrial pendant, abstract art, and a geometric rug. The stylish mix of functional pieces with designs that add color and shape is sure to warm up even the most spacious of rooms.
Strong sculptural forms were selected for this industrial dining room. A concrete and Acacia wood dining table center the focus of the room with leather and brass cantilevered dining chairs. An ebonized French oak sideboard adds minimalist sophistication.
This basement living room needed some additional seating and a place for eating. The designer was clever and placed two console tables side by side with some stools behind the sectional in view of the tv and voila dinner and a show.
Use the same metals in the furniture and chandelier as well as the decorative accessories. Use similar wood tones throughout the industrial space as well. This helps create a dining room that feels well thought out and cohesive.
