A feast for the senses
Prepare for the season of family gatherings by transforming your dining room into a luxurious and inviting space. Draw inspiration from John Kilmer Fine Interiors, and curate a dining experience that leaves a lasting impression on your loved ones.
1. Build a strong foundation
Choosing the perfect table is paramount for a formal dining room, as it serves as the foundation where loved ones gather to enjoy meals and forge lasting memories. Opt for a table with a dark wood finish to add timeless elegance while emanating a warm and inviting atmosphere.
2. Unleash your creativity
Consider breaking away from traditional choices when selecting your dining room fabric. Dare to experiment by combining different patterns, such as navy linen with bird motifs, alongside smaller-striped patterns. This bold mix can create captivating contrast, infusing depth and intrigue into the space.
3. Store with style
Integrate a stylish credenza into your dining room to provide a chic storage solution and an additional serving space. Credenzas are versatile furniture pieces combining functionality and style, elevating the dining experience.
4. Take a seat
Infuse character into your dining room by incorporating a mix of dining chair styles. Typically end chairs feature arms, while side chairs are armless. This combination of chair styles adds aesthetic appeal and offers functional benefits, providing comfortable seating options and easy movement for you and your guests.
5. Reflect elegance
A metal mirror can be the perfect choice when it comes to adding a touch of sophistication and style to your dining room. It serves a practical purpose by reflecting light and creating an illusion of space and acts as a stunning decorative element that enhances the room’s overall ambiance.
