HGTV Dream Home 2009: Dining Room Pictures

Vibrant, henna-colored walls serve as the backdrop for a comfortable farmhouse-style tea parlor and dining space that invites guests to linger long after dessert.

Everyone’s welcome for dinner at HGTV Dream Home. “We used a big farmhouse table and then, to create a more intimate dining experience, added the highback chairs,” says Linda. “It just felt good and very cozy in the big space.” The solid maple table is set for a harvest feast with candle-filled hurricanes and casual dinnerware paired with clear and topaz goblets and Sheffield silverware, an understated look Linda loves. “The tableware, like the furniture, is more plain then fancy because in this dining room wine and food are the stars,” says Linda. “I think it is always important to remember the purpose of your design.”
