Mixing chair styles in the same color is a safe way to get an eclectic mix while keeping a consistent look. The oversized chalkboard on the wall is perfect for displaying the evening's menu for dinner parties.
The dark walls in this room would be dramatic in the evening, but the large window provides natural light and creates a very different feel during the day. I love the bright blue chairs that keep the room from feeling too heavy.
Also, notice that the shelving houses wineglasses and dishes. This is a good option when you don't have room for a large hutch.
I love how this farmhouse table is paired with Panton chairs. The crown molding and built-ins look gorgeous against this tranquil paint job. Accents are kept simple, and the brightest bit of color in the room comes from the draperies.
Sometimes it's hard figuring out how to fill a blank wall in your dining room. A gallery wall of plates is a great way to fill the space and add color.

This Michigan farmhouse has charming wood panels that create a rustic feel. I love how the owners added the oversized mirror and propped it against the wall. The wildflower-filled vases are simple and work with the mood. This room stays true to the age and style of the house, yet it feels relevant and chic.
