A series of unique shelves, one set built-in, the other wall-mounted, enliven the walls of this intimate, dimly lit dining room.
The sunny space is separated by a swag of paper cutouts that draw the line between nap and lunch. Layered colors and patterns make the simple rooms sing, and the worn textiles provide an overall theme.
Call attention to the vaulted ceilings with large vintage sconces and an attention-grabbing chandelier.
By limiting confident citrus hues to a single element, you can create a focal point of color. Here, a large-scale pendant becomes a visual treat, offering a dose of vivid color in an otherwise neutral room. Complementing framed art pieces are scattered through the rest of the space.
New mixes with old in the artwork of this unique dining room. Paintings, prints, sketches and a poster liven up this corner, and the casual arrangement adds an element of downtown cool to the space.
The owners of this Houston home brighten up the dining room wall with the addition of not just photos, but other much-loved artwork, mixing subject matter, color and frames. The arrangement is hung at eye level for the best visual punch.
Carve out smaller rooms within a larger one by defining spaces with artwork, carpet, lights or drapery. This dining area—a section of a large, open living room—didn't feel like a well-defined space at first.

Classic black and white photos line the adjoining wall of this modern dining room.
