Make a beautiful first impression with vintage
It is easy to create a living space that is eclectic and stylish without breaking the bank. Mismatched chairs set the tone in this Stadshem space. They are arranged around a small table. Two Paris flea market finds are displayed on the walls. The first is a reproduction of a classic painting. An antique mirror is located on the right wall. This mashup of styles and periods creates a unique look.
A monochromatic wall display will make a statement
A striking monochromatic scheme is perhaps the most dramatic way to decorate, as this Ramsey Interiors dining room shows. The backdrop of jet black walls provides a backdrop to a collection of sculptural pieces made entirely from white porcelain. Two candlestick lamps illuminate the arrangement at night from the two candles that flank it.
Make a colorful library to double as wall decor
Ann Lowengart Interiors’ modern dining room features a built-in bookcase that extends to the ceiling. You don’t need art when you can make a colorful wall display of your library by blocking it with color.
Dramatic wall art can make white walls pop with dramatic wall art
This dining room, spotted on Homepolish, features crisp white walls that allow you to display bold graphic paintings.
A custom mural is a better alternative to wall art.
Jessica Helgerson, interior designer, believes that a dining area should reflect your personal style. Helgerson chose to create a unique mural for this space instead of sticking with wall decor. The mural has a soothing, ocean-like feel that we love.
To pull elements together, add a framed print
Studio McGee’s farmhouse-inspired dining area features a beautiful still life of a fruitbowl and flowers. The framed print’s colors and other decorative elements tie together, such as the vase with white flowers and the tree at the corner.
Decorate with items you already own
This small dining area on Homepolish is brought to life by treasured prints and photos. The room is alive with style thanks to the contrasts in the frames and images.
Get a custom look with cherished prints and photos
Another example of how to spice up a dining area with items you already have is this: Scheer and Company’s talented interior designers took this idea to the next level, covering an entire wall in prints and photos. Notice how the frames are not always at eye level. This adds visual interest. Thanks to a few vintage cameras and a collection of hats, the wall on left is just as intriguing.
A giant chalkboard is featured
Sometimes all it takes to make a big statement is a large item. Luster Custom Homes’ small dining room is decorated with a giant chalkboard.
Distressed mirrors are the way to go!
This dining room from Nolen Homes features dramatic pieces that pop against white walls and pale pink furniture. Three tall, distressed mirrors are to the right that add some sparkle and drama. The bold print on the wall at the back adds vibrant colors to the space.
Choose One Colorful Piece Wall Art
This chic dining room is designed by Black Lacquer Design. The white walls make it easy to showcase colorful items. The striking green drapes are complimented by the simple, abstract yellow print on left wall.
Punctuate a Neutral Dining Room
It’s possible to feel sophisticated and chic in neutral spaces, such as this Studio McGee dining room. The wall’s large graphic black-and-white print is a great accent to the space.
