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.
If you have great love for magnificent antique dining rooms, you know that a rug is an irreplaceable decor element that has the power to make or break the room. The safest option is to go with a rug that fully matches the rest of the rustic furniture, but if you aren’t afraid to create a slightly daring look, pick a rug that is proudly showcasing some color. A dining room in Victorian style calls for a vivid rug that can contrast the beige chairs and transparent glass table. This rustic dining room has a look of purity and simplicity. The rug in the color of cream is a perfect choice as it sits between the two ends of a spectrum represented by white chairs and wooden table top. A dining room that plays with the tones of white and darker wood is calling for a rug that can channel the best of both – giving the white a dim contrast so it can stand out, and giving the wood a similar color to match it. A shade of beaver brown seems like a fitting choice, especially if the rug is decorated with some lovely patterns.

The formula for a beautiful summer table. white dinner plates + appetizer plates in a contrasting color + interesting greenery. As you’ll see below, simply by changing up the flatware, the napkins, and the centerpiece receptacle, you can get two entirely different looks. Our dinner plates are a discontinued pattern from Crate & Barrel (learn more about the Claire pattern here). The teal appetizer plates come from CB2 and are a gloriously affordable $1.99 apiece. We love the idea of topping each plate with a special bite, such as round crackers covered in goat cheese and pink peppercorn. Our greenery was picked up at the local market, labeled “California filler” and sold for $3 a bunch.
