Country-style dining rooms

Wood dining room

An all-wood dining room scheme creates a relaxed vibe, but is also easy to dress up for more formal occasions. This set of dining table and chairs is accompanied by plenty of wood accessories too, such as the mirror, plant pot and salt and pepper set.


Ranch-style dining room

A cool ranch-style dining room sits well in a country setting. The mis-matched dining chairs and bull's head in this room give the whole look a contemporary slant, while wooden tablewear, plants and cacti keep it rustic.


Summer dining room

To freshen up your dining room for the summer think lovely table linen and dot with bright crockery and accessories - acid yellow and bright pink are a winning combination, if you dare. 


Kitchen-diner style

The relaxed kitchen-diner is perfect for laid-back country life. This one pairs a fresh white dining table and retro light with simple tablewear in striking black and white. 


Formal dining room

Nail the formal dining room look by creating a cohesive arrangement with your chairs, table and pendant lamp plus a rug to zone the eating area. This scheme pairs traditional high-backed chairs with a round table that has a skirt of thick, quality fabric. The pendant light hangs low above it for impact.


Japanese-style dining room

A Japanese print is often all it takes to give a room instant sophistication, this dining room steps up the glamour further with a Japanese screen. Add to the tone with a great floral table setting plus lovely glassware, and stick to subtle colours, such as soft blue and taupe. 


Floral-chintz dining room

A mix of pastels, florals and traditional wood dining furniture defines this chintz dining room. Keep things simple to stop it looking kitch - use pretty jugs and lovely linens. If you have the space, have a comfy armchair close by for an after-dinner nap.


Traditional floral dining room

The Grandfather clock, the dining chairs and the traditional floral wallpaper give this dining room its formal edge, while the ginham upholstered seats and tall metal flower jug add playful elements.


Cottage dining room

Just because the dining table is in the kitchen, it doesn't mean it can't be a dressy affair. This table looks inviting with pale blue and white as the theme, within which stars, stripes, checks and polka dots jostle for attention.


Conservatory-style dining room

Checked flooring and wicker furniture says conservatory-style, yet this dining room looks grand with its bold mix of neutral colours and patterns. Mix and match florals to your heart's content in an ecclectic scheme like this one.
