Concept Board: Earthy Coastal Dining Room

Don't you feel like you could accomplish a lot in this dining room? I can see kids sitting down to do homework after school, friends gathered for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres and a family enjoying turkey and all the fixins at Thanksgiving. Rooms pull double and triple duty these days. Modern families don't want to waste space and certainly are less formal than the days of old. We want to be surrounded by things that inspire us and that we will love for a long time.

Muted interiors are certainly an emerging trend in home decor. They are peaceful and instill a sense of calm but stray from boring by mixing interesting textures. Sure, an all white room is very tranquil but where is the personality? (And the stain resistance??)

If you wanted to take the aesthetics in this room to the next level, a few bronze punches could really make it fly. Think about setting your table with metallic bronze plates, chargers and bowls or choose a metal console shelf unit to use as a sideboard that displays your beautiful pieces.

It's one thing to see beautiful interiors on Pinterest and in magazines. It's quite another to live in them! A room like this one is sturdy and liveable while also being devastatingly handsome. 

How do you use the dining room in your home? Do you need your rooms to pull double duty?
