If it’s all one big room and you want t to look like one large space then I would do alll the same curtains. However if you are trying to divide it into two different rooms then different curtains will help with that, divide the space even further with a different rug for each space. I love indoor/outdoor rugs for kitchens or dining rooms since they’re so easy to clean. Hope that helps!

The wallcovering, inspired by a 16th century ottoman bedcover, is by Katie Leede & Company. The whitewashed fretwork dining chairs from Dennis & Leen, along with the tole palm tree and planter from Maitland-Smith and the striped rug, are nods to the nearby beach.

Now let’s get started.  This is the view standing in the foyer looking into our dining room.  I love the large window, it brings in a lot of natural light.  I designed the curtains to enhance the middle crescent.  I placed a stationary panel to each side of the window on a decorative drapery rod.   I didn’t want to hide the window with drapes or heavy curtains.

The ceiling is just as important as the floor – sometimes more so.

This tip can work in just about any room dimensions but use caution on low ceilings, you don’t want to leave your diners feeling claustrophobic.
To reclaim your dining room from papers and bills, "you need to figure out the logjams that are creating clutter and handle those with portable solutions," professional organizer Lorie Marrero says. For example, if you pay bills at the table, get a rolling cart; if the surface doubles as a work desk, get a caddy for your office supplies. That way, come dinnertime, you can move your mess out of sight. For a cheap remodel, a fresh coat of paint on the walls (or floor!) can work wonders, or switch out tablecloths, rugs, or other accent pieces for a five-minute update. Quick tip: Before you buy any big furniture, measure and outline its dimensions in painter’s tape to make sure it won’t disrupt the flow of the space. Ready to get started?

Liven up your space by featuring pretty prints on rugs, window treatments, pillows nad more. Block print dhurrie rugs can command a pretty penny. To get the look for less, use a pretty wall stencil to apply a pattern to a large piece of artist canvas or drop cloth with a foam stencil brush. For an 8' by 10' rug, you'll need about a quart of standard interior paint in a satin finish. Wash stencil every other use to keep paint from clumping and elaving unwanted marks on the rug.
