Dining Room – If this latest batch of the most-saved dining room photos proves anything design-wise, it’s that traditional interiors never go out of style.
From classic taupe wall colors to elegant pendant lights and upholstered dining chairs, many of the following 10 dining rooms lean toward the traditional end of the design spectrum, but not without a few twists thrown in.
Here’s of the 10 most popular dining room photos so far this year.
1. Under the Chandelier
The design of this transitional dining room in Glenview, Illinois, came together around an existing antique table. Andrea Fripp and Paulina Cervantes of Dual Concept Design sourced upholstered chairs to tie in with the wood but brighten the space overall.
The wainscoting received a fresh coat of white paint (White Dove by Benjamin Moore) to contrast with the medium gray walls (Kendall Charcoal by Benjamin Moore). But the real showstopper of the room is the matte brass chandelier with hanging crystal prisms.
2. Leafy Green
Martha O’Hara Interiors introduced a few playful design touches in the dining room of this otherwise traditional Minneapolis home.
Black-and-white floral wallpaper encloses the space in a leafy arbor, a theme enhanced by the bright green Windsor-style dining chairs.
3. Open-Plan Dining
Adding a kitchen island with counter seating as part of a kitchen renovation by Centered Interiors created much better flow for this historic home in Louisville, Kentucky.
In the dining space, a handsome wood table sits on a warm terra-cotta-tone area rug that complements the green of the kitchen cabinetry. White-and-gold pendant lights tie together both the counter and dining space as one well-thought-out room.
4. Traditional Elegance
This classic dining room designed by Retro Interiors sits in an elegant Fort Lauderdale, Florida, estate. Rich wood tones balance the champagne hues of subtly striped silk drapes, creamy walls, and the soft shimmer of the chandelier.
Pulling the dark wood of the flooring up to the curtain rod visually ties the space together from top to bottom.
5. Cool Blues and Open Beams
This charming dining room framed by natural wood beams and covered in fantastical leafy wallpaper belongs to Massachusetts couple Joy and Dan Harris, who happen to be the parents of Houzz contributor Becky Harris.
Wanting to update a well-loved kitchen and give their dining space new life, the Harrises hired Violandi + Warner Interiors to help reimagine the interiors, which included cladding the dining walls in bold new wallpaper (Kalamkari Vine by Anna French for Thibaut) and exposing old beams that nod to the history of the home.
6. Palm Beach Formal
While the rest of this Palm Beach, Florida, the home embraces a sunny palette of bright white and blue, the designers wanted the dining room to feel distinctly different.
Sara McCann and Jenna Conte Olin of McCann Design Group used dark wood tones, accents of silver and elegant upholstery to create a space that reads more formal than a beach house.
7. Traditional Meets Midcentury
Designer Ruthie Staalsen used a combination of her client’s existing midcentury modern furniture, existing wall art and a few new pieces to help bring this dining space together.
New olive green chairs, in a hue chosen to complement the artwork, bring a vibrant natural feel to the room. A black-and-white area rug breaks up what would otherwise be wood-on-wood from the floors, dining table and sideboard.
8. Old Meets New
Designer Meghan Shadrick helped her clients in Lexington, Massachusetts, give new life to antique dining set by reupholstering the chairs in olive ticking stripe fabric and faux leather.
To add contrast to the dark wood tones, the designer added splashes of color to the room with a saffron-hued vintage Persian rug and new hand-embroidered drapes in raspberry, creamy yellow and olive.
9. Seeing Stripes
This breakfast room in a Chicago home serves up some serious high-contrast style. Designer Alida Coury, who previously worked for Chanel, drew inspiration partly from the French brand’s chic black-and-white boxes for the remodel.
A floor of black-and-white marble tiles set in stripes and zigzags lays the foundation for sleek black dining chairs, a smooth white table, and a geometric chandelier.
10. New York Chic
Tamu Green of Lux Pad Interiors gave this dining area in a high-rise condo in New Rochelle, New York, a dose of personality with bold lighting and statement chairs.
The chandeliers, made of brushed and satin nickel, draw the eye upward. The designer had the dining chairs covered in chartreuse crushed velvet for a dash of color against the beige walls (Sandy Hook Gray by Benjamin Moore).
