Coastal Dining Room Inspiration

Remember when it seemed that all dining rooms looked like this?  Thank goodness we have all opened our minds to something other than china cabinets, cherry wood (not to pick on china cabinets or cherry wood) and matchy watchy dining room tables and chairs.

Dining rooms come in all shapes and sizes. Heck, they can be no dining room at all, but an eat-in kitchen instead.  Tables and chairs also come in all shapes and sizes, and the trend is for the chairs and the tables not to match but to complement each other.

I love the high ceilings of this one!

Driftwood ... you know how I love it.

This one could be a table at a restaurant, but I could also see this style done in a beach house in the city.  (This does exist!)  I'm imagining a breakfast room in a swanky apartment overlooking the ocean, with the Titus Dining table (because its a small apartment, you know) and these chairs surrounded by a wall of windows, hanging plants, pendants that will knock your socks off.

This one makes me feel happy because its so bright.  Did you notice the glass on the table? I have the same thing on my own dining room table -- smartest thing I ever did besides having my kids. Smartest thing I ever did because I have my kids. Just contact your local glass company, ask then if they do glass for furniture (some only do auto glass), give them the dimensions and they will walk you through choosing thickness and corner shape.

The dining room isn't usually the place you see nautical decor, but they did it so well here!

This room is a perfect example of why we have so many choices available at StylishBeachHome.com.  This light fixture is not on you might associate with a nautical theme, but we don't want to limit you in your genius!  We carry a similar one that I think would look even better (no offense, Mr. Baxter).

There are so many choices to do a dining area!  I've seen so many ways our pieces have been used, it just makes me so happy.  I will show you more sometime.
