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!
This Locust Valley, New York, dining room by designer Meg Braff takes its color cues from a pair of antique chinoiserie panels that flank the entrance. A punchy table cloth by Lulu DK and the grass cloth wall covering by Meg Braff Designs provide relaxed contrast to the room’s more formal antiques, like the Regency chairs from Rumi Antiques and the Baltic crystal chandelier, and other décor, such as the apple green drapery and valance, both in a fabric from Holland & Sherry. A black lacquer credenza, by Jansen, grounds the pastel space with sophisticated polish.

For rectangular dining tables, ideally allow a minimum of 24″-28″ of table length per person and some additional inches at the corners (how much space is needed at the corners depends upon the table width – more additional space is needed for narrower tables than for wider tables). Always consider the location of the table’s legs/base in determining how many people it will comfortably seat. Also consider the width of your dining chairs – if you have wider than average chairs, the amount of table length per person will need to be greater.

I’ve been wondering what can be done to separate a dining room and living room if they are in the same space. I’ve been looking at purchasing new dining room furniture. I’m glad that you mentioned putting in a rug for the dining room. In the photo, the rug does look like it separates the dining room from the living room. This might be something that I will consider as I shop around.
Inspired by the lush landscape just outside the windows (which were salvaged from an old train depot!), the homeowner of this 105-year-old Victorian farmhouse filled the dining room with rustic wood elements and pops of green. The Beech wishbone chairs, which are lacquered in an apple green, pop against the large antique hutch that stores the homeowner's collection of copper Moscow mule mugs and green and white china. A pale pink Oriental rug with subtle hints of sky blue and chartreuse rounds out the mix.
