Best of 2017 | Dining Rooms

Lindsey Grace Interiors Favorite Dining Rooms 5.jpg

Does anybody else feel like the first week of this year is flying by? We've been anxiously awaiting this weekend because we're expecting above zero temperatures for a few hours on Saturday! Maybe this cold weather is what inspires my love for coastal design?! Today's post actually isn't about the North Dakota weather, it's about my favorite dining rooms of 2017. These are the spaces that have inspired the designs I've created the past year, are being used for inspiration for upcoming projects, or are just simply noteworthy.

Dining rooms can be extremely versatile. While I always believe it's important to learn how clients live in their homes, the dining room is one we spend time discussing. The way each homeowner uses their dining room varies. Some love hosting and want their space to be able to seat as many guests as possible. Other's use theirs for casual family week night dinners and homework. Either way, I love creating a beautiful and functional dining room for each client.

Lighting plays a huge role in the overall feel of each dining room. A beautiful chandelier can set the tone of the space, while adding wall sconces next to built in's can make the space feel truly intentional. For more casual spaces adding a sweet little table lamp can add depth and functional soft lighting.

I love the millwork detail in each of these dining rooms. Adding details such as these in your entire home can add up quickly, so I love to encourage clients to focus on the rooms that can be true show stoppers, such as the living and dining spaces.

An open concept dining space that flows directly from the kitchen to the dining room can maximize space as well as create a more casual dining experience. I love this design by Andrew Howard, and if you're not following him on instagram I encourage you to do so. He not only executes the most detailed and gorgeous designs, his instastories are hilarious.
