Ideal Location

The open dining room enjoys an ideal location off the kitchen and just steps away from the great room, with lots of natural light thanks to large windows and the glass doors that lead to the screened-in back porch.

Take Center Stage

The round pedestal table with a weathered base and wood top sits center stage in the dining room. A coastal-style, hand-woven area rug with different shades of white and sky-blue adds pattern and softness underneath the dining table.

Charming Centerpiece

A blue-and-white ceramic planter with greenery adds height and brings a touch of nature to the table, creating a charming centerpiece that picks up the blue details seen throughout the home.

Friendly Space

The round shape of the dining table that offers seating for five makes it easy to walk around, and creates a dining room that feels friendly and comfortable.

Comfortable Seating

The table’s vintage faux-leather dining chairs offer a way to sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty of the home. “Almost everything you see to sit in, with the exception of the woven chairs in the great room, is super comfortable,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn.

Dramatic Drapes

Floor-to-ceiling navy-blue drapes in the dining room coordinate with the upholstered dining chairs, add some privacy from the neighbors, and bring the navy-blue color all the way up to the ceiling.

Touch of Color

The Carolina blue vertical groove ceiling in the dining room, like the ceiling in the kitchen and great room, adds an unexpected surprise and a soft touch of color that works with the white walls.

Sunny Spot

Imagine waking up to a tasty breakfast in this comfortable and fashionable dining room, a sunny spot that offers the chance to enjoy the natural beauty of this home’s Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, location.

Indoor and Outdoor Feel

The glass doors that separate the dining room from the screened-in porch outside give the space a nice indoor and outdoor feel. When the doors are open, it makes both of the shared spaces feel expansive.

No Bug Zone

Transom windows and side lights by the glass doors also really open up the space and contribute to the strong indoor and outdoor feel. The design of the adjoining screened-in porch eliminates the problem of pesky bugs.

Statement Lighting

A sculptural metal light fixture in an hourglass shape with soft white rope shade casts a glow above the dining table, a nod to the coastal influence seen throughout this Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, home.

Two-Toned Finish

The dining room table's wood top features a two-toned finish for a distinctive look. The dining table offers the perfect spot to catch up on emails or check the latest news and weather.

Coastal Style

A round wall mirror with a jute rope frame, an accent mirror with loop hanger and decorative natural driftwood are some of the nautical-style pieces that decorate the dining room wall and offer a play on texture.

Spacious Sideboard

The dining room includes a spacious sideboard with four adjustable shelves inside, which can be used as concealed storage for extra linens, dishes and more. When entertaining large crowds, the top of the sideboard can do double duty as a serving buffet.

Bohemian Look

The stylish wood sideboard includes carved door details and a hand-painted, distressed blue finish for a bohemian look. Decorative bracket support under the sideboard’s front cabinet wood tone top adds a nice extra touch of detail.

Connected Spaces

This view from the dining room shows the close proximity to the great room with gas fireplace where visitors can relax and enjoy the natural beauty of this stunning coastal property.

Easy Entertaining

The home’s user-friendly design with the dining room just steps away from the kitchen makes entertaining family and friends super easy and convenient.

Coordinated Look

The wood and blue details used for the inviting kitchen seamlessly blend with the furniture and decor in the dining room, giving both spaces a coordinated look with great flow.

Shared Space

The pendants with blue enamel shades over the kitchen island and the sculptural 8-light metal light fixture with soft white rope shade over the dining table keep the shared space illuminated.

Best of Both Worlds

This wide view shows how the dining room offers the best of both worlds, with an easy connection with the kitchen and just steps from another dining area located inside the screened-in porch.
