Why I Like This Room: A Stylish & Practical Dining Room

Beautiful Dining Room - House BeautifulHouse Beautiful – Miki Duisterhof

I ran across this image on House Beautiful yesterday and it drew me in. Whenever that happens, I almost always stop to ask myself why I was drawn in. I think asking why I like something helps me to develop a better eye for design and more confidence in my own style.

While the room has a bit of an upscale vibe to it, I think one thing I love about it is it seems like such a great multi-purpose, casual but still stylish dining room. The eclectic chairs pulled up around the round table seem inviting and comfortable. It looks like a room you could serve a lovely dinner in but also a room you could play games or do homework.

It’s a room that one could recreate even on a smaller budget.

While a rug is normally a bit of a challenge in a dining room, this looks like an easy to clean and durable but still high quality rug.

The beautiful windows and doors let in so much light, but it still has a great mixture of charming light sources so it would be a wonderful room to be in day or night.

And of course, the vaulted wood ceiling is amazing!

When you look at rooms or design photos that appeal to you, do you enjoy asking yourself why you were drawn in?

While I have a fondness for the quiet side of fall, there is also something breathtaking about the colorful changing leaves this time of year! Nature is really the best inspiration when it comes to color and texture. And in the fall, there is something about rust, coral, and orange–they inspire and energize me!

I’ve incorporated several of these beautiful hues in my own home, through my office curtains, in my guest bedroom, in my son’s room and the occasional pillow or other accessory. They are a warm, bright and happy spot in my day!

Here are some fall-inspired rooms with a deliciously beautiful touch of rust, orange and coral. Enjoy!
