In this sunny breakfast room, designer Meg Braff brought in the greens of the garden for a soothing connection between indoors and outdoors. The lattice wallpaper, by Meg Braff Designs, camouflages the rooms tight quarters, while the apple-green molding, painted Sweet Daphne by Benjamin Moore, draws the eye up. The Serge Roche-style chairs are covered Bernard Thorp botanical-print linen.
The table and chairs act as the focal point of your dining room, but show the rest of your space some love, too. "Do something unexpected," advises Rachel Bliefnick, founder of the design blog This Is Our Bliss. "Give your ceiling an interesting paint treatment, or put punchy pillows on your dining chairs and then layer a bold rug over your existing one."
When most of us think of dining rooms we think of tables, buffets, chairs, and chandeliers. But something equally as important in the dining room is the curtains and drapes. Amidst all of the hard furniture that tends to fill this room, it's wonderful to have some fabric and add a touch of softness. So even if you don't normally include flowing curtains and drapes it's worth considering adding some to the dining room.

Check out these dining room essentials to help you create a space that looks great, and that's functional too.

Modern meets traditional in this ethereal space, where designer David Scott paired furnishings made by contemporary artisans, like the Zhipeng Tan table and chandelier by master glass artist Jeff Zimmerman, with 1790s chalk-painted French armchairs. Natural textures, such as the woven leather rug from Doris Leslie Blau and the lacquered raffia wallpaper from Phillip Jeffries ground the space, while neutral drapery fabric and trim from Holland & Sherry and a blue ceiling keeps the mood light and airy. The painting is by Larry Poons.
