Dining Spaces to Inspire

Before I share with you the pics for how our apartment turned out, I first wanted to share some of the rooms that helped to inspire me, starting with the dining room today.

From these spaces, not every style or decor choice from each room has been adopted, but each of them has an element or subtlety that has been incorporated....

Our space is all white, glorious white. I can't resist pure white walls!

I adore Tolix chairs and knew that I had to incorporate them somehow; problem being, I also love Eames Wire chairs and Wishbone chairs...

I'm also quite partial to cow hide rugs...

If I had to describe the style of our dining room I would have to say chic, modern eclectic with an industrial edge.

I love mis-matched furniture and creating interest by adding one or two quirky elements...

So lovelies, like? love? What would your perfect dining room look like?

  1. Love. I like mis-matchy fab-ghetto stuff and those last two pics fit the bill perfectly. The first too are a bit whitey-white, which always freaks me a out a little bit. x

  2. I love this style, too. Love the modern chairs combined with wooden tables, love the white walls, the airy feeling. A lot of thing... Beautiful inspirations and I can't wait to see a few photos of your place.

  3. Every single image in this post is stunning! I too am a fan of the mis-match. And those wooden floors with the cow print rug have me drooling. xo

  4. Love every single one- my ideal dining room has a great mix of texture/elements/style.

  5. You had me at Eames chairs. I've the grey coloured ones on my wish list. One day I say, one day!

  6. Each one of these spaces has a few elements I love. My perfect dining room would have to be bright, have white walls (I love white interiors), herringbone wooden floors, maybe not a chandelier, but definitely a statement ceiling pendant, a beautiful table and chairs and maybe a piece of artwork. Can't wait to see photos of yours. :)

  7. Fabulous dining tables! Have a beautiful day, Kellie xx

  8. From the inspirations you've shown here I am SO excited to see how your place turned out!
