8 Beautiful dining rooms that will inspire you

"Even in a formal dining room you don't want to be ponderous or gloomy. Eating is really one of your indoor sports. You play three times a day, and it's well worthwhile to make the game as pleasant as possible."
                                 Dorothy Draper, Decorating is Fun!
Whether you have a formal dining room or a casual dining room style, a little updating won't hurt.  Transforming a dining room isn't very hard just a few tips and tricks to follow:
  • Add a splash of bold color
  • Soften room by adding linens such as table toppers, chair covers
  • Add a pocket door for privacy
  • Update light fixtures
  • Invest in an exotic rug
  • Create an inviting atmosphere with fresh flowers or greenery
  • Open up draperies to bring in natural light
  • Mix upholstery fabrics
  • Build a banquette for extra seating
  • Hang luxury draperies or modern curtains
  • Keep things balanced (symmetry) with clean lines
