Ninette Bourdon. Dining room. June 12th , 2017.
The many beautiful dining spaces, nooks and exclusive yet compact dining rooms on showcase today will tell you that all you need is a bit of planning and some ingenuity to overcome this common and perpetual problem.
We start by reinforcing a favorite decorating mantra: there is power in numbers. In fact, we recently made this point in our Decoist article on displaying collections with style. Below we see a group of vases atop the Draught Dining Table from CB2:
Our first DIY dining table and Ike, the adorable pup sitting next it, are both show-stoppers! Handcrafted by Decor and the Dog and inspired by a plan by Ana White, this stunning farmhouse table was made with stud-grade whitewood for a rustic charm.
Do not think of the dining room as a traditional dedicated room with four walls that serve no other purpose. With the advent of the open floor plan and its immense popularity, the ’60s and ’70s idea of box-like rooms seems all but redundant. Contemporary design is all about integrating the living room, dining space and the kitchen as one big, harmonious space. This is precisely why a small dining room is a good option, even if you do have some additional space to spare! Use an area rug to define the dining area. Large pendant lights, contemporary chandeliers and smart recessed lighting can also demarcate the boundaries in a subtle manner.
