6 Festive Dining Room Inspirations and Ideas
If you truly want to eat, drink, and be festive this holiday season—or any time of year for that matter—it’s time to reevaluate some dining room ideas. The place where you entertain guests or have a nice meal should be more than a table surrounded by chairs. In fact, this room of the house is a true extension of your living space or a space with a personality of its own. Whatever the end goal, the good news is that updating the dining room doesn’t have to involve a complete renovation. Here, we share 6 inspirations and ideas on how to achieve an inviting dining room that will keep you entertaining year-round.
DESIGN AROUND NATURAL LIGHT
When possible, it’s best to place the dining table near the windows so that the natural light will greet you. If you don’t have a natural light source in your dining space, consider painting the walls white, implementing light-coloured artwork on the walls, or incorporating mirrors into the room to enlarge the area.
Inspired by vintage New York City hotel lobbies, this dining table illuminates the room with chic modernity and an ultraluxe feel. Combine gold details, mixed metallics, and touches of natural elements to create this elevated look.
Calling all mid-century lovers: This space proves you can take a modern approach to Christmas decorations. The cheery palette and sleek silhouettes of the dinnerware feel delightfully retro, while a tiny silver tree in the middle offers some subtle holiday spirit.
