Bring Your Dream Dining Room To Life

Get ideas and inspiration to create your dream dining space. 

“The trick to dining is to get all the attention onto the table and between the people.” – Nick Tobias

One of the best things about creating your dream home is showing it off. If you’re looking to take your entertaining up a notch, take a leaf out of some of Australia’s best homes and bring your dream dining room to life.

1. Define and decorate your space.

Steve and Lang’s Desert Oasis does a top-notch job of defining its living and dining spaces. The striking wall between the two is also home to a sleek fireplace, adding a dramatic decorative touch to the already stunning room.

Tip: Create a dining destination, and use functional pieces like fireplaces or furniture to contribute to the interior design of the space.

2. Commit to a colour scheme.

Jilly’s Elegant Barn House proves that black can be a rewarding choice of paint. By following a monochromatic colour scheme, she’s brought her spacious dining space to life.

Tip: Think about the colours that bring you joy and use those as your focus.

3. Go big.

Everything in Norma’s Grand Mansion is on a grand scale, and her dining room is no exception. From the Italian fresco on the ceiling to the massive table, her dining room certainly makes a statement.

Tip: If you’ve got the space, use it. Go for high ceilings, large rooms and furniture to scale.
