It’s that time. Just past mid-October when we start realizing that Thanksgiving is only a little over a month away.
With that realization comes the anticipation of fun times shared with family and friends around the dining table…. And, for some, thoughts of how our dining room doesn’t currently actually have a table, or isn’t functioning quite like we’d like, or needs a design or decorating refresh.
So, with that in mind, we’ve rounded up some links for you. Just a little head start so that you’ll be ready and relaxed by the time the holidays roll around:
1. Everything You Need To Know
No matter your room size or design style, there are simple guidelines that will make designing your dining room a painless process. It will also help it be the best it can be – for everyday dining and for entertaining your guests.

2. Solutions for A Unique Dining Room
When it comes to furnishing a dining room, many times it is limited to a dining table, chairs and a serving piece so it may feel a little more difficult to make the space interesting and unique.

3. It’s in Black and White
Great inspiration for decorating a black and white dining room that’s warm and inviting, and a really good dessert recipe too!

5. It’s all in the Mix (and Match)
There are many creative ways to bring style to a space but, when it comes to the dining room, it’s all about the mix for many. They like the way it sets their room apart and adds that extra something special.
Furniture manufacturers are jumping aboard this trend as well, making it easier than ever to create your own unique look.
