We designed this modern classical dining room a while several years ago.

One of the fun things we love to do at home is to sit around the dining table with candles on and soft music on at the end of the day. We feel we really need this to wind down each day and to get ready for a good-night sleep. we also love to put up a festive themed tabletop on each holiday since we celebrate almost every holiday as much as we can. Besides kitchen, a dining room is the place where people get together with families and friends for formal parties or casual gatherings all the time. So, the design of a dining room is really important for you to enjoy by yourself to the maximum and nourish your loving relationships. And you want this space to be unique and reflect your own personality and of course well designed. Today we are going to talk about 12 ways to devise a one-of-the-kind dining room.
1. Decide function first. Before you start the design process, you need to know how you would like to use this space—a formal dining or a casual gathers only? The way how you want to use the space will set the foundation for the design process.
Although the dining room is getting more casual and relaxed, still, most of home owners still want to make their dining room very formal with a big wow factor. If this the case, the striking artwork, unique wall-treatment, flooring, right light fixtures, one-of-the-kind furnishings and upscale custom furniture might be the options for you to consider. In this New Yorker Designer Alex Papachristidis designed dining room, the light-grey-colored hand-painted wallpaper is one of the key features for this stunning sumptuous dining room. Also the gilded Louis XVI dining chairs really stand out from the muted almost monogram color palette. The crystal chandelier, the gilded clock further emphosis the wow factor and luxury feel.

2. Have a focal point.
The trick here is to make the table the center of attention, so that your guests are compelled to take a seat and dinner companions are the main focus. Once the table is situated, arrange all other furnishings and accessories so that they complement this focal point. Also read this article on tables-capes.

Unique colors and textures completely transform a space by creating interesting textures and surfaces in the major horizontal planes: the floor, the table, and the ceiling.

Mixing and matching furnishings, lighting, or artwork is a fun part to design your dining room. It often creates unexpected result and makes the style of the space timeless.

Hi, guys, Happy Saturday! As usual, I love to work in my garden a little bit earlier in the morning just to refresh my mind and feel good. My backyard garden looks so green and lush now.
