Dining Room Pictures From HGTV Dream Home 2014

This comfortable dining room seamlessly blends modern, rustic and industrial styles in an open, airy space with floor-to-ceiling windows and unparalleled views.

  • Dining room-high hero

    The 16-foot-wide dining space feels voluminous thanks to 10-foot-high walls and a steeply-pitched ceiling featuring exposed structural beams. A wall of windows overlooks the front yard and floods the room with natural light.

  • Dining room-vert

    As interior designer Linda Woodrum chose fabrics for this room with a view, she was careful to stick with subtle patterns and solids that didn't compete with the outdoors. The flowy white draperies are mounted at the top of the wall in order to draw the eye up. A traverse rod operates on a pulley system to allow for easy adjustment.

  • Dining room toward kitchen

    Dark gray walls are paired with accents of stainless steel, wood and both foxed and clear glass. The mix of materials and design styles, from traditional to modern, \"visually energizes\" the space, says interior designer Linda Woodrum.

  • Detail-shelves

    A dramatic, modern focal point, a wall of stainless steel shelving displays a collection of glass stemware, silver serving pieces, wooden and mercury glass candlesticks and wood accent pieces.

  • Detail-dining room table

    The vivid yellow used on the wingback chairs is pulled directly from the leather used on the kitchen barstools. It's a clever way to tie the two spaces together without being overpowering.

  • Detail-Quicken Mortgage

    Veering from traditional mountain design, where one style or material ties down the look, interior designer Linda Woodrum mixed materials, textures and styles, like this traditional rug paired with a rustic-style side chair. A reproduction of an antique Turkish design, the hand-knotted area rug, in hues of beige, taupe and sun-washed ivory, grounds the space.

  • Detail-dining room table

    With seating for eight, the darkly finished pedestal dining table echoes the blacks and deep grays featured in the ceiling eaves and window frames. Intricate balusters under the table lend a traditional feel.

  • Detail-dining room lighting

    Standing in for a more formal chandelier, a series of five mismatched pendant lights illuminate the dining table. In staggered heights, the iron, steel, aluminum and brass fixtures add industrial style.

  • Detail-dining room seating

    Arts-and-crafts-style side chairs, upholstered in soft buffalo check fabric with a nailhead detail, are as comfortable as they are stylish.

  • Detail-glasses

    \"It's a beautiful mix of textures and glass and color,\" says interior designer Linda Woodrum of the open shelving. \"And it's a contemporary way to use your dishware and display things.\"

  • Detail-flowers on table

    Lending visual interest and a focal point, Cymbidium orchids burst forth from an aged and partially glazed terracotta planter.

  • Dining room toward foyer

    Abstract art by local painter Danae Anderson introduces both bold shapes and organic lines into this dining room, all while tying together the bold hues and warm neutrals used in the room.
