How To Design Your Dining Room

http://www.lonnymag.com/decorate/dining_spaces

Your Dining Room is a very important space regardless of if you use it. It's not just a space for formal entertaining, but also a space for casual dining. When designing your dining space be sure to buy comfortable chairs. In my dining room, I bought arm chairs instead of dining chairs. I find arm chairs more comfortable to sit in then the standard dining chair. Buy at least two lamps for your dining space. Lamps add visual interest and soft lighting to the space. Don't overcrowd your Dining Room with multiple china cabinet's or console table's and don't buy a Dining Room set. Be creative, and add a touch of the unexpected! (ABOVE) The lamps in this Dining Room designed by David Cafiero are amazing as their height is very unexpected. I am a huge fan of the rug and low sitting china cabinet's. Not using a ceiling fixture in the Dining Room, creates a casual look. (BELOW 1) The floors in this Dining Room designed by Susan Becher have an awesome vintage flare. This table setup is great for the holiday's. (BELOW 2) This Dining Room designed by Celerie Kemble has a feminine touch. The table has rough edges, and it works beautifully with the gentle color scheme of this space. The low backs of the chairs, allow the table to stand out. (BELOW 3) I love the eclectic feel of this Dining Room designed by Celerie Kemble & Anna Burke. The orange console table adds a pop of color and the Sputnik chandelier adds a burst of energy. I like the way the designers took a bold chance with the wallpaper in this space. You can add as little or as much to your space as you want. Don't follow rules, just do.
