Deep blue dining room with benches and floral blinds

Think ‘no frills’ for furniture and flooring to keep the room calm, but stop it looking clinical with a warm, matt blue finish on the walls and a modern botanical-print blind. Stick to oak, black and white finishes for your key pieces to give a foundation for adding colour and detail. An abstract rug zones a dining area – and hides crumbs until you get time to vacuum!

Neutral dining room with zigzag rug and palm print chair

Neutral dining room with zigzag rug and palm print chair

Go for a mostly monochrome scheme with neutral walls and black wood furniture. Next add in some black and white patterns, for interest. And if you’re feeling brave, throw in a little bit of the unexpected with a palm print chair or cushion. If you do, make sure to have some natural greenery to complement it.

Large open-plan dining area with exposed-brick wine rack

Large open-plan dining area with exposed-brick wine rack

Who doesn’t want a wine rack in their kitchen? Our sentiments exactly! Exposed brick is all the rage just now – it’s stylish, rustic and cool, adding fabulous detail to any space. The fact that this large kitchen-diner has a cleverly built-in wine rack added into the mix, plus a cutely curved wall, shows that some serious design genius has been at play here.

Pastel-coloured dining room with celebratory bunting

Pastel-coloured dining room with celebratory bunting

Mix shabby chic and modern country styles to create a lived-in look with a homely feel. Vintage finds, like the plate rack and dresser, are great in a scheme like this and lend unique character to a space. They offer plenty of scope for putting colourful crockery on display, too. Celebratory bunting completes the look.

Neutral dining area with wooden dining furniture

Create a traditional feel with wooden dining furniture. Good-quality wooden furniture will last a lifetime and the inevitable knocks it gets over the years just seem to add to its character. This dining room benefits from an open-plan feel and connects directly to the kitchen. It’s round the corner, though, so it also has a feeling of being its own room.

Relaxed dining area with glamorous accents

Shades of pink and grey combined with country-style wooden furniture create a calm and tranquil atmosphere in this family dining area. The pale pink Chesterfield sofa in front of a subtly patterned wallpaper is the focal point of the room, while a large mirror maximises the light and increases the sense of space. To dress up the scheme for a special occasion, a shimmering table runner and metallic vase add a note of glamour.

Christmas dressed dining area

Festive-decorated Christmas dinner table and dining area

Get your inspiration from nature this Christmas, using a real tree branch hung above the dining table. Decorate it with hanging decorations, garlands, holly and berries for an alternative centrepiece. Then keep the table itself simple with a touch of holly or ivy, dried nuts and maybe a candle or two.

Traditional festive dining table laid for Christmas dinner

If you’re lucky enough to have a big family dining table, it’s the best fun to deck out at Christmas. Tall candle holders like these are ideal as they leave plenty of room for all the food. Add a personal touch with home-made place cards for each member of the family.

Festive red and white home

Biblical wall hangings in festive red and white dining room

Rich wall hangings can give a warm depth to rooms, particularly at Christmas. Here the red wall hanging taken from a 17th-century tapestry provides a grand backdrop to the antique-white dessert buffet table. Red candles and silver trees complete the festive feel, along with red baubles and glittering LED lights.

Traditional English Cottage dining room with French designs

Traditional English Cottage dining room with French designs

Go for a classy French theme to your Christmas decorations, with gold and white as the key colours. This works particularly well if you have a traditional style to your decor, such as here. This is a new room, but the classic French-style cabinets, and white, distressed mirror frame, paired with the stripped back wood of the table give it a sense of history.

Country dining room with foliage chandelier

Country dining room with foliage chandelier

Red candles, bubble glassware and pretty berries welcome in the magic of Christmas. A country tartan tablecloth mixed with folksy florals adds a relaxed and informal feel. Classic plates on rattan chargers with fabric crackers and chalkboard name tags make the look rustic and personal, but the wow factor in this dining room has to be the impressive chandelier of fir and ivy foliage, hung from black highland ribbons.

Pretty country dining room scheme in copper and pink

Pretty country dining room scheme in copper and pink

Choose coppery and rusty finishes for light fittings and decorations in your dining room. Warm copper tones add light on dark days and reflect flickering candlelight beautifully. Pick up similar shades in glimmering velvet for cushions and smart satin stripes at the window. Contrast heavy linen weaves used as a tablecloth with the magical glow of copper decorations, creating a backdrop that feels reassuringly familiar while adding rustic texture.
