    1. I knew from just looking which one of those dining rooms was from Pottery Barn. Their photos are always so recognizable, aren’t they?
    2. How timely, because I’m thinking dining room today, too. Switching the living + dining rooms of our house, before we even finish + move in!

    Wow, Melissa, what a treat for the eyes. Even though my former Dining Room is now my D’office (don’t remember who coined the term but I love it), I stilled enjoyed look at every one of these rooms. The special treat is that I’m trying to make decisions about changing out the mishmash of pinky peach tile and beige carpet that completely chops up my small house open floorplan in Arizona. After seeing Centsational Girl’s re-flooring of her new Nevada get-away home with wood-look porcelain tiles, I’m headed in that direction. The pics above offer lots of inspiration for color choice – I’m totally smitten with the House of Turquoise room – enough to print it out and frame it! My three white and brownish feline fuzzballs would fit right in – I see that kitties and pups play a significant role in completing the look of any room.

    Melissa I’m so glad you posted these today…I’ve been looking for some inspiration for our new home kitchen and I think I’ve found it. Happy Day Thanks!
    The first and second pictures will work great….same lay out as our future home! (if we ever get it built….living in Calif. permits are crazy!}

    My favourite is the last Country Living pic. I love the shot of blue and pink in the flower arrangement, the rug and the green cupboard. These days there’s so much monochromaticism in homes overall. Sometimes you see all greys and whites in photos and I love color. To me, color is life.

    Gorgeous. Just confirms to me that I want wood floors all over my house. And a big table.

    Thank you for sharing these. I love looking at such photos and taking time to think which elements I like best and why, figuring out what inspires me…

    Just three words…what’s for dinner?

  9. Patty Day

    Great dining spaces. They prove one doesn’t need a “formal” dining room to have a relaxing, attractive dining space!

    I bought a big, new, BEAUTIFUL kitchen table with the idea of mixing and matching chairs at it.

    I now have a phobia about buying one or two when they are at a good price, that it would go with the other ones that I pick out along the way. I love the idea of the blue painted chairs in different style. What do you think? I just need to get over the fear and start mixing and matching??
    Then I was considering using two very grand wingbacks at the head of the table, but wasn’t sure if I could pull off two different ones, or if I needed them to match….


    Melissa, the second dining room with the black Windsor chairs and firelplace is my favorite. I am contemplating painting my Windsor chairs black and I have this image pinned for inspiration. Have a wonderful Fall Weekend. Stop by my blog if you have a chance, I have your mantel featured in my blog post today. Thank you for allowing me to use it!!

    Absolutely gorgeous – totally love your site! I do covet a long dining table with a bench. Only problem – I have a round table! Any chance of some pics with round dining tables?

  13. Cynthia @

    what a great collection, they’re all so gorgeous. though I’m partial to the PB and Country Living planked wall rooms of course! thanks for putting these together, isn’t it so nice to start thinking about gathering the family close for the holidays?

  14. Linda Wilgus

    Those are gorgeous! I especially love the first from Style me Pretty with the lovely mis-matched dining chairs (which is one of my favorite features in dining room decor) and the absolutely stunning rug. A feast for the eyes – thanks for sharing!

  15. Barb

    When I look at any room I get a “feel” for it overall and then find my eyes focusing in a random individual piece such as lighting or colors in the room. Thanks for several very different looks that all seem inviting and all have great design ideas! Barb

  16. tara

    love these dining rooms. I think I pinned every single one of them.

  17. Alison

    What is the paint color in the blue dining room?

  18. Lorrie

    Beautiful inspiration photos. A fire in the dining room would be such a lovely thing. I think I’d always make sure it was on, making my family and guests cozy.
