Deep red walls, crisp white linens and a few paper decorations are the backdrop for the perfect Christmas feast.
Winter wonderland dining room
Set the scene for a magical Christmas with elegant silhouette motifs in classic red and white. To keep it fresh and modern, use lashings of ice white for your furnishings and accessories, with just a few touches of berry red as an accent. Add a simple, glossy table and leather dining chairs, all in brilliant white, to provide a smart contrast to the dark walls.
Foliage & frost dining room
Enjoy festive feasting in this simple but sparkling scheme. The room has a chic country feel with traditional, off-white furniture and a trailing leaf design wallpaper, so realistic-looking greenery, frosted pine cones and wicker pieces add to the rustic look.
Glitz & glamour dining room
Strong colour and pattern are a decorating dream team, guaranteed to wow your guest. A deep violet and pink damask wallpaper is the star of this scheme - use it on a feature wall or on all four walls if you dare. Keep furniture simple but luxurious, with a glossy black dining table and high-backed chairs in a rich plum. Complete the look with glistening accessories, such a gold table runner and bronze mirror.
Family friendly dining room
Christmas is the most exciting time of year for children, so make them feel included in the grown-up celebrations by giving them their own special dining table. White and red with warm ivory and beige are the base for this stylish scheme.
Modern cool dining room
Cool fresh whites and ice-pale blues mixed with clashes of silver in a modern open-plan kitchen/diner give this scheme a frosty, magical feel. Duck-egg blues and whites are lifted by shiny silver wine glasses, and a ripe pear adds a zing of colour and keeps the table looking fresh. An alternative tree, branch-like and decorated with glass, silver and white baubles, matches this look.
Ruby red fire & ice dining room
Dare to be bold with this dynamic shade of red in the dining room. By sticking to one colour, you can be more playful with decorations, going over the top with scale or quantity.
Create a sophisticated setting for Christmas dinner with this modern take on Scandinavian style. Use long lengths of ribbon to give a white tablecloth a festive touch.
Hollywood sparkle dining room
Give your dining room a hit of film star glamour with this elegant take on Art Deco style. Use a geometric wallpaper with a subtle shimmer that will catch the light, and go big on a few key pieces, such as a fan-shaped mirror and a trio of glittering chandeliers. Mix in a few contemporary pieces such as transparent chairs for a modern edge.
Gold decadence dining room
Bring pure decadence to your dining room with black glossy furniture and plain white china. Keep it delicate with small details, such as golden decoration and white and gold crockery. Stop this scheme getting too brassy by adding fresh white roses to the table.
