Elegant Dining Room Decor

Whether you’re hosting a holiday dinner party or gathering around the table for a weeknight meal, the dining room is where people come together. It's the spot in the home that encourages you to celebrate your signature style. From modern to traditional, get inspired by these stylish ideas.

Bright Spot

Like the sun breaking through gray skies, this color combination is a happy surprise. Let the yellow accents shine by choosing clean, modern lines on the walls, windows, and floor.

Naturally Beautiful

Mismatched chairs in neutral shades add character to this open, inviting space. A floral wallpaper in a muted tone will feel modern, not frilly, which can balance a space that is filled with accessories like hanging wreaths, bamboo cutting boards, and more.

French Accents

Traditional and antique pieces, like these Louis-style chairs, can feel intimidating when grouped together. But this room maintains a fresh face with various neutrals (whites, creams, and sage green) sprinkled throughout the space and accented with a single bit of hanging bling.

Emerald Beauty

If you love one bold color, go for it, but keep the competition in check—or, in this case, in toile. By sticking with a single two-toned fabric on the curtains and chairs, the whole patterned effect is easy on the eyes.

Bright on White

Clean walls, airy window treatments, and a whitewashed farmhouse-style table are perfect for a light-filled room with a view. Keep the whole look grounded with the right amount of texture, which is introduced with a set of rustic, woven chairs.

Clean Slate

For those with a modern aesthetic, white is a popular choice for walls, floors, and even furniture. Lean on accents and textured pieces to soften up the space. Here, the set of cushioned chairs in a sophisticated pattern keep the white lacquer Parsons-style table from feeling too stark.

Fit for a Crowd

When you're decorating a large, wide-open space, focus on capturing light and calling attention to architectural details. Display treasured mementos in open bookshelves to personalize a space and to give it a cozy vibe. Slipcovered chairs add texture and offer flexibility to a palette because they can easily be changed—and washed.
