We’ve found a few of our favorite examples of a neutral dining rooms turned into beautiful spaces that begs to be the next space for a fab dinner party!
Light up the room – Lighting is one of the most important aspects of a dining room. A chandelier can bring the focus of the room to the table, even in an open floor plan. This contemporary gold fixture from Circa Lighting does just that.
Use an accent color – Your table and chairs will most likely be a neutral color, but that doesn’t mean accessories have to be as well. Meg Lonergan Interiors uses the drapes, paintings and rug to bring in coral and red tones throughout the room.
Create a bold centerpiece – A centerpiece can be easily updated each season to give your dining room a new look. In a neutral room, bright fresh flowers are perfect. Bradford Collier Interior Design uses the bright yellow of daffodils to contrast the beiges and browns throughout the room.
Curate antique pieces – If a bold centerpiece or accent color isn’t your style, curating a room filled with interesting pieces can still present you with a beautiful dining room.
