Classic Windsor chairs hug a long wood table in an expansive dining room that doesn’t feel large or cold. A wood ceiling with beams, paired with three-quarter wainscoting, give you plenty of warm fuzzies when you sit down to dine.

Wood plank walls, flooring, and ceiling create a bit of primitive warmth in a farmhouse dining room. Metal pendant lights, galvanized chairs, and a stone pillar keep the room from feeling too overdone with wood elements.

Wood and white is one of my favorite decorating combinations. The wood adds texture and warmth while white paint keeps the room bright without feeling cold.

  1. My choice would be the sun porch dining. Always wanted a sun porch that was screened in warm weather and windowed when it is cold. I also noticed the collection of brown bottles down the middle of the table, as I’m certain caught your eye also.

  2. I love no. 9 i can just see families sitting there laughing and enjoying themselves on Thanksgiving and little children snickering at each other. Of course i am curious to see what the rest looks like, interesting, or not?

  3. Hands down, my fav is by Dan Waibel Designers and Builders. Love the fireplace, French dinning set, chandelier…..I wouldn’t change a thing!!!
    No matter what/where your surroundings, a Very Happy Thanksgiving🍁

  4. They are all so warm and cozy, just like you said. I am partial to a dining space with a fireplace!

    BTW, it being Halloween, please pray for the victims, animal and human, of satanic rituals tonight.

  5. I too love the Dan Weibel designers room the best. It’s the stone fireplace with the added warm white of the side cabinets with the lovely glass. Actually having a Thanksgiving dinner in any one of these rooms would be so nice.
    Stay safe this Halloween and keep your animals safe too:0)

  6. Each and every room is a welcoming haven for family and friends to gather to enjoy a meal! Love the color and wood finishes making a come back!
    Stay safe, everyone! Happy Halloween!

  7. They are all beautiful and cozy, but I think I would choose 5 and 7. I love that stone fireplace and french country vibe. Thank you, and Happy Halloween!

  8. Love the idea of a fireplace in the dining room but the table with wicker chairs, beams and sophisticated casual lighting is a winner for me!
