  • Neutral dining room with blue and yellow dining chairs

  • Neutral dining room with eye-catching floral dining chairs

    Introducing bold florals to your decorating scheme may feel a little daunting, but the key to showing them off to their best advantage is restraint. Here, a large floral print on the dining chairs makes a striking statement against a backdrop of carefully coordinated plains.

  • 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.

  • Spacious neutral dining area with pink artwork

    White, wood and grey create a sophisticated palette in this dining room. Decorative touches, such as the pink artwork and orange breakfast bar stools, provide warm bursts of colour. There’s a hint of orange in the painting so this creative pairing works really well.

  • Eclectic dining room with retro-style wallpaper

  • Dining room extension with glass roof and garden view

    If you’re planning a kitchen-diner extension, consider a glazed roof. During the day, it will make you feel like you’re sitting out in the garden – and at night, you’ll be able to dine under the stars. An exposed brick wall creates a stylish feature that doesn’t try to hide the original exterior.

  • Light-filled modern dining room with glazed wall

    Natural light floods the open-plan living space, thanks to the glazed wall at the rear. For artificial light, there are multiple pendants. The lamps have been carefully mapped out to provide an even distribution of light, without sacrificing their random arrangement.

  • Basement dining area with direct access to the garden

    This basement area is a winner all round. A stunning glass staircase that is a great feature in its own right leads to the kitchen above, while the dining area also offers direct access to the garden. The room is large, so a bird-print wallpaper creates a natural separation of the living space. All in all the scheme perfectly takes advantage of the space below the main house.

  • Neutral dining room with block-print tablecloth

    Add some artisan charm to your dining room scheme with a block-print tablecloth. Opting for a single print in a neutral scheme is a great way to focus attention and enliven a simple space.

  • 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.

  • Easter-themed dining room with bunny wallpaper

    Okay, so we’re not suggesting that you hang a bunny wallpaper in time for Easter. That would be asking a teeny bit much. However, we thought you might enjoy this wonderful Easter space that’s just perfect for a celebratory egg and soldiers breakfast. Add pretty flowers and cute bunny sculptures to the table and you’re good to go.
