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.

Remember Emily Gilmore’s painting of Richard from the Year in the Life episodes? Yup? Okay unless you’re really trying to make a statement that’s too big! Use your furniture for reference. If one area is your living room area and is anchored by a couch your piece of art shouldn’t be bigger than the couch. I’ve found that about 2/3 the length of the couch is the perfect size for a large piece of art. Go down in scale from there!

Elegant style takes a laidback turn in this New York City dining room designed by Ashley Whittaker.

Silk curtains from Scalamandre plus an antique mirror from 1stdibs play up the room’s height.
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’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.


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.

Derian set the table with his own tableware collection, which features floral images from old instructional texts.
