Design tips for decorating a green style dining room

Here’s how to achieve the green aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a green dining room?

Creating a dining room that serves as a welcoming hub for meals, gatherings, and memorable conversations begins with thoughtful planning. The arrangement of furniture not only influences the room's aesthetic appeal but also its practicality and comfort. By employing a strategic approach to your dining room design, you can achieve a space that harmonizes form and function, making every meal an experience to cherish.

Whether you're in the process of a dining room remodel or looking to makeover your existing one, these are the key elements to include in your design:

  • Paint or Wallpaper: Select a color or pattern that sets the desired mood for the dining room and complements the style you want to achieve. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall to serve as a focal point.
  • Dining Table & Chairs: The heart of the dining room, your table should be chosen with care, considering its shape, size, and placement. This piece sets the tone for the room's overall design and functionality, acting as the anchor for all other elements. Pro tip: Divide your table’s outside dimensions by 24 inches to find out how many people you can seat comfortably. Complementing your table, the chairs should offer comfort and style.
  • Storage Furniture: Practical yet stylish storage solutions like buffets, sideboards, and credenzas are key to a clutter-free dining area. They provide essential storage and a space for serving dishes. Position these pieces to maintain a clear pathway around the table, ideally 3-4 feet from the table’s edge.
  • Area Rug: Love them or hate them, rugs in the dining room are a hot topic. A well-chosen rug can define the dining space and add a layer of warmth and texture. If you opt for a rug, ensure it extends at least 24 inches beyond the table on all sides, allowing chairs to remain on the rug even when pulled out.
  • Decorative Lighting: Central lighting, such as a chandelier or pendant, should be positioned directly above the table to illuminate the area evenly and serve as a visual centerpiece. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood.
  • Curtains or Blinds: Window treatments not only help control the light and provide privacy but also serve to tie the room's design together. They offer an opportunity to inject color, texture, and pattern into the living space, making it more inviting and personalized. Whether flowing and sheer for a light, airy feel or rich and textured for a more luxurious look, curtains play a pivotal role in setting the tone and atmosphere of the dining room. Don’t forget the curtain rod!

How do you decorate with green?

Green may be one of the most versatile colors in design. It is a common hue in all design styles and room types. Soft greens like sage, olive, or mint can bring an instant sense of calm or serenity to a space, while bright greens like lime or chartreuse bring a sense of whimsy or retro tone. The use of deeper green hues like pine or emerald are hallmarks of more traditional design styles.

Green is often associated with nature, so consider using it as a foundation for a nature-inspired dining room color palette. Pair different shades of green with earthy tones like browns, beiges, or muted yellows to create a serene and organic atmosphere.

If you want to make a bold statement with green, consider painting an accent wall in a rich shade of green or using green wallpaper. This can create a focal point in the room and add depth and visual interest. Alternatively, you can opt for a more subtle approach by incorporating green through smaller decor elements like curtains, throw pillows, or artwork.

Lighting can dramatically affect the perception of green. Natural light tends to enhance the freshness and vibrancy of green, making it feel more alive. In artificial lighting, warmer tones can deepen the richness of darker greens, adding coziness to the space.

One of the easiest and most effective ways to bring green into your space is through indoor plants. Not only do they add a pop of color, but they also purify the air (win-win!). Choose a variety of plants with different shades of green and textures to create a lush and vibrant indoor garden.
