    New fiberglass chairs contrast with this dining room's 1870s Italian worktable (which is 11 feet long!). The built-in cabinet (painted in Sea Wave Blue by Valspar) and the bird-themed wallpaper applied to the ceiling bring in a bit of whimsy that makes this room unforgettable.

    In the cabin's dining room, an assortment of pewter adds patina to the space. The gallery wall is full of nature-inspired paintings. Colorful floor coverings add warmth throughout the home.

    Sarah Richardson says: "I converted the cabinets into a banquette by cutting them down to seat height. The result? A full dining area that has storage, too! I had an old birch tree that had to be cut down repurposed as a rustic dining-table base. The natural bark and curvy limbs are part of the charm." -

    The raw wood farm table and black Windsor chairs in this dining room keep the space from looking to colorful. Such understated supporting players allow the table runner and cerulean blue linen draperies to command attention without overwhelming the eye.

    While it might seem hard to match these chairs, which are covered in English cabbage-esque flowers, with anything, Amanda embraced similar colors to accessorize the dining room. The exposed brick wall also helps anchor the room.

    To maximize space, Bonnie opted for a built-in banquette, which she paired with an antique pine table and schoolhouse chairs.

    The dining table was cut down from a larger antique piece to fit the space and paired the reclaimed wood slab with a sleek steel frame. A wet bar has a prep sink, wine fridge, coffeemaker, and ample glassware storage. When entertaining, the built-in chalkboard to highlights the evening's menu or specialty drink.

    Thanks to cheery vintage finds and an unabashedly feminine fabric, this nature-inspired breakfast nook sings a happy tune.

    Metallic floral wallpaper in gray, white, and black palette has timeless appeal in this dinning room.
