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.
