Designer, decoupage artist, and shop-owner John Derian embraced the intimacy of the small dining room in his New York shop by cladding the walls in a large scale cabbage rose wallpaper he designed based on a 19th century Currier & Ives painting. An eclectic mix of seating, including a slipcovered sofa piled with pillows and vintage side and arm chairs, further amps up the cozy feel. Derian set the table with his own tableware collection, which features floral images from old instructional texts.
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!

Lacquered walls in a school-bus yellow shade set a not-so stuffy tone in this Long Island, New York dining room from the start. Designer Katie Ridder reinforced the playful mood by pulling up rattan chairs from Janus et Cie to the carved wood table, from The Raj Company, and by skipping a rug and instead opting for painted floors, which were inspired by a Moroccan checkerboard tile pattern. The drapery fabric is from Harbinger, and the chandelier is from Avery & Dash.

The backs of dining room chairs should definitely be taller than the top of the dining table but how much taller is a matter of personal preference.  When dining chairs are lower in height, it feels more modern whereas taller chairs tend to make a room feel more traditional and formal. If you’re using different side and end chairs, your end chairs should be taller than your side chairs.

I love fresh flowers, but I don’t love spending a fortune on them. Our Trader Joe’s sells seeded eucalyptus for $2.99 a bunch and hydrangeas for $5.99 a bunch. I think the roses were a little more expensive at $9.99, but you can see how many I was able to buy at that price! If you don’t have access to a Trader Joe’s near you, check out your local grocery store for floral options. They tend to have beautiful blooms for a fraction of the price of floral shops. Walmart is also a great option. The potted pink hyacinth in the background is from Walmart and was only $5!
