  • 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

    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

    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

    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.

  • Urban country style dining room

    Chunky wooden furniture immediately brings a country kitchen feel to an urban dining room. The raw texture of the exposed brick wall gives a modern contrast to more traditional details like floral crockery. Add a table runner in a patterned fabric to inject colour while still exposing the texture of the wood to keep the rural look. Finish the look with bunting, that you can customise, to add charm and personality.

  • Country-style dining area with huge fireplace

    Make a feature of a big fireplace by leaving the brickwork exposed. There’s not much need for other decoration when you have a focal point like this one. With the woodburning stove close by, there’s no better place to position your dining table. Go for a classic 50s chair, such as this Carl Hansen wishbone design, and mix up your colours so that plain wood isn’t overused.

  • Wooden dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows

    Surround yourself with rustic materials for an enduring look that will easily handle heavy traffic from the garden outside. Stone flooring is difficult to wear out and it won’t show up every speck of dirt, so it’s ideal for country living. Choose furniture that suits the look of your property – in a rural setting, you can’t beat the natural feel of wood.
