No matter which holiday you celebrate at this time of year, there’s a good chance that food is at the centre of your celebration. Decadent feasts with family and friends are a part of numerous winter holidays. What this means is that in addition to the meal, your dining room plays a staring role in the holiday festivities.
Looking for some inspiration? We visited some of our favourite home style bloggers (most of whom are home grown) to find dining room looks that a beautiful, achievable, and right on trend. Here are some beautiful holiday dining rooms to whet your appetite for holiday entertaining.
Lucy Akins from Craftberry Bush always creates a magical space at any time of year, but especially during the holiday. Soft, romantic white on white is a big theme in her home. This year, she has chosen to work in gold and pretty pastels. The result feels like a celebration all on its own. Glimmering and full of fun.
Always one of our favourites, Christina Dennis aka The DIY Mommy has filled her dining room with festive, French country flair. This year, she has styled a dining room that practically smiles with tranquil charm and soft, whimsical touches. Her use of pale greens and white adds a festive feel to a neutral palette.
We honestly cannot get enough of this beautiful tablescape! Oftentimes when you see sweets or sugar-themed holiday décor, it’s filled with brights or pastels. However, this beautiful dining from Liz Fourez of Love Grows Wild takes the holiday sweets theme and gives it a grownup spin. You can almost smell the sweetness of the gingerbread and powdered sugar neutrals… and really, how can you go wrong with gingerbread houses and cakes and cookies and a tower of donut holes?
It’s amazing just how much more inclined we all are to bring nature into the home at this time of year. Perhaps it’s this rarity that makes it seem so special. Jamie from So Much Better with Age has created a stunning holiday dining room that’s practically dripping with greenery. She shuns the traditional baubles and ornaments for charming white-tipped pinecones, seeded eucalyptus, and sleigh bells.
Unencumbered but filled with bright bold colour. This dining room table from The Handmade Home achieves a look that is definitely fun and festive, but keeps things simple as far as decorations are concerned.
