You're going to notice a theme with all these photos. There usually is a reclaimed wooden dining table that provides the rustic charm paired with either modern chairs or light fixtures which gives the room an edge.
Don't you just feel like you can breathe in this room? Of course, it helps to have very tall ceilings and loads of natural light. ;)
I love the drum pendants and I think the striped rug really makes this whole space so comfortable and casual.

I like the mix of dark grasscloth wallpaper and white moldings. So classic.
I think this casual look is great for a dining room when you don't have an eat in kitchen. The rustic table allows for daily usage and wear-n-tear.
And, if your family is anything like mine it quickly turns into the art room or the game room. Hmm....definitely something to consider especially when you have children!
