Modern dining rooms are increasingly being relegated to a small, designated corner of the kitchen or living area. The age of the expansive and lavish dining room is definitely behind us. Today’s dining rooms seem to place efficiency ahead of flowery aesthetics and it is simplicity that trumps extravagance. The advent of the social kitchen along with a greater urge to turn the open living area into a gathering space for family and friends has seen dining space take a turn towards rustic and natural decorating choices. From modern farmhouse dining spaces to ones with understated rustic charm and a dash of wooden warmth, homeowners no longer want just a polished, contemporary dining area. It is all about giving the room a distinct character even while allowing it to blend in with the larger theme of the open plan living. With that in mind, here are 15 inspirations that bring home cozy rustic effervescence even while staying true to modern functionality. Some more modern than others, there is something here for everyone.
Rustic dining rooms are perhaps those who are in need of a rug the most. The natural appeal of a dark, antique decor is very homey and nostalgic, cozy and familiar. Adding a rug into the mix will only enhance this feeling and truly squeeze the best attributes out of the room. Capitalize on the brown color palette to truly bring an organic, natural feel into the room. The rug under the dining table should be the darkest element in the room. It will instantly draw attention to itself and the dining table, as it should. For a lighter and brighter rustic dining room pick a rug that feels fresh and reminds you of a sunny summer day. A shade of yellow will certainly fit that description and be a great addition to a dining room full of dark wooden elements.
Once you are sure about the shade of blue you love, then you can shop for carpets, lighting fixtures and dining table chairs that usher in the blue magic. Of course, those who adore the color can try out the monochromatic dining space in blue. But it is definitely not a look that all of us can pull off. When it comes to cool shades of grayish-blue, it is almost impossible to go wrong in the contemporary dining room. Maybe blue seems a touch too refined and far too close to all that gray you already have in your dining room. Not to worry, as red offers a fiery substitute that simply cannot be missed. Yes, many of us tend to shudder at the idea of using red while decorating our home. But its brightness and romantic charm offer uniqueness that no other color can bring to the table. Whether it is bright red banquette seating, bold chairs in magenta, walls clad in deep red with matte finish or an eclectic collection of colors accentuated by the presence of scarlet, you cannot ignore the majesty of red.
